Work visa to Russia
A work visa to Russia is a work permit for foreign citizens who plan to work on the territory of the Russian Federation. Such a visa is issued to foreign citizens after receiving an official invitation to work from the Federal Migration Service of the Russian Federation (FMS of Russia). The work visa is a single-entry visa and is valid for up to 90 days, except for visas for highly qualified specialists. If necessary, the visa can be extended by the FMS of Russia on the basis of an employment contract or a civil-labor contract for the performance of work or provision of services.
