In order to hold talks and reach concrete agreements on a number of issues in the field of labor migration between Russia and Uzbekistan, a delegation led by Adviser to the Prime Minister of Uzbekistan Mehriddin Khayriddinov met with the First Deputy Interior Minister of Russia, Colonel-General Alexander Gorov.

According to the Agency for External Labor Migration, the parties focused on the working conditions of Uzbek labor migrants in the Russian Federation, in particular, within the framework of the presidential decree No. 274 of Russia “On the temporary measures for regulating the legal status of foreign citizens and stateless persons in the Russian Federation in connection with the threat of further spread of the new coronavirus infection”.

As the Russian side reported, in accordance with this decree, citizens of Uzbekistan who are remaining in the territory of Russia illegally, regardless of the expiration of registration and other permits (before or after March 15), can apply to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation at the place of residence and legalize their stay in the country until December 15, 2020.

Such measures as administrative expulsion, deportation, revoking a patent, annulling the previously issued temporary residence permit and canceling a work permit will not be applied against foreign nationals in Russia until December 15. 

“In this regard, we call on the citizens of Uzbekistan, who are staying illegally in the territory of Russia, to exercise their rights and legalize their stay in the country,” the agency’s report reads.
