We would like to inform you that a draft law has been introduced to the State Duma of Russia on amendments to the procedure of hiring HQS in Russia, including an increase in the minimum salary level and the possibility of obtaining an indefinite residence permit by HQS and their family members.
What are the proposed changes?
The draft law proposes the following:
1. The minimum salary level (MSL) for HQS will be set in the amount of at least RUB 750,000 per quarter (instead of RUB 167,000 per month). The reduced MSL requirements for certain categories of employers defined in the current legislation on HQS (accredited IT companies, participants of the Skolkovo project and some others) will remain unchanged.
