New law changes affect several aspects of the immigration law of the Russian Federation.
In particular, there are an amendments in the Federal Law No.109-FZ of July 18, 2006 <<On migration registration in Russia>>:

  • it becomes impossible to prepare the migration registration at
    the address of the entity if the foreigner does not live at the address of the
    legal entity. Thus, the migration registration
    will be implemented only at the place of residence of foreign
    Citizen. 
  • a new procedure should be adopted for migration registration of HQE. It is
    presented in the following form:

    <<Highly skilled (FSI) and foreign nationals,
    members of a family of highly specialist
    are exempt from the obligation to perform the actions necessary for their
    migration registration at the place of stay for the period of not
    more than 90 days from the date of entry into the territory of the Russian
    Federation. Besides, the mentioned foreign nationals in the prescribed
    Order registered at the place of residence

    on the territory of the Russian Federation and on arrival at a new location
     for a period not exceeding 30 days are exempt from the
    responsibility to perform the actions which are necessary for their registration with
    the new place of residence. After the expiration of such ninety-day
    or thirty-day period, mentioned  foreign citizens are obliged to
    perform the actions necessary for their registration with the new
    place of residence within a period not exceeding three working days.
    also there is an order of removal of a foreign citizen from the registration at the place of residence.

  • the FE  at the place of stay shall be deregistered after receiving information on registration at the new place
    stay.
    • departure of the from Russia can be only after receiving information from
      the border control, confirming the departure from the territory of the Russian Federation.
    • In this regard, it is necessary carefully  monitor the time of departure from the FE from the Russian Federation and accurately indicate the actual date of his departure on
      the detachable part of the migration notice.
    • Death of the FE is fixed only after receiving appropriate information
      content from the registry offices.
