To travel around the world or to work abroad, you will need a visa. Each country has its own set of rules and regulations for foreign citizens. Some countries have more restrictions, others – less, and the rules applied in each specific case will be very different, so if you are going to another country, be sure to clarify the procedure of crossing the border and the possibility of staying in a country in your particular case. Thus, foreign citizens who want to work in Russia need to obtain a work visa, first of all. This rule does not apply to the citizens from countries of the Eurasian Economic Union.
The type of permitting document and the procedure for its obtaining depends on the purposes of a foreigner and the duration of his/her stay in the country. Generally, a work visa is required for foreign citizens who want to work in Russia. Russia also issues tourist visas, but they do not entitle a foreign citizen to work and do business in the country. Meanwhile, work visa also allows a foreign citizen to cross the border for an unlimited number of times, and can be issued depending on the employment contract for a period from three months up to three years. This visa can be extended upon expiration of its validity period.
