Work Visa and Business Visa Processing

A business visa is a type of visa that implies cooperation under a contract with a foreign company. The purpose of a business visa may also be the conclusion of new contracts, obtaining the possibility of carrying out a certain type of work (for example: the provision of maintenance services).

A work visa is a type of visa that implies the employment of a foreign citizen in companies of the Russian Federation with the subsequent signing of an employment contract and payment of all taxes to the Russian budget.

Work visa processing is a rather difficult process. Many clients of our company confuse the objectives of each type of visa.

If you are planning to find a job and work in Russia and not to create various difficulties both for yourself and for your employer in the process of obtaining a work visa, you can simplify the process if you have a legal entity abroad. In this case, your legal entity needs to conclude a contract for performing a certain range of work with the subsequent receipt of remuneration to the accounts of the legal entity abroad, with the payment of taxes to a foreign state.

The main advantage of a work visa compared to other types of visas is the possibility of year-round residence in the territory of the Russian Federation. There is also an alternative way of providing year-round stay in Russia.

Some clients of our company get several passports, which gives them the opportunity to stay in Russia for 3 months, then they leave the country and enter again.
