Deputies of Yamal took the regional law «About setting of a coefficient reflecting regional specifics of the labor market on the territory of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug».
The law defines cost of patents for migrants in Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug. Adoption of the law is connected with so that the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin signed amendments to legislation canceling quotas for attracting of manpower from visa-free countries and introducing system of patents instead of them.
The new system gives regions the opportunity independently to define the number of migrants by giving them patents for work through juridical persons and sets cost of patents. Citizens from visa-free countries can register a patent for a term from one month to one year and to work on its basis only in the region, where it was given. In the opinion of the speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Yamal Sergey Kharyuchi, the law is called not only to lead working migrants out from a shadow but also to increase competition of local population on the labor market, as it makes tax burden on foreign citizens close to tax burden on Russian citizens.
On the basis of patents since the first of January of 2015 working «visa-free» migrants can be busy not only with household work, as now, but also with any other. For this aim they need to make advance payment (the personal income tax) for a month, to register a policy of voluntary medical insurance, to confirm knowledge of Russian language and also history and bases of legislation of Russia.
