The Interior Ministry of the Russian federation has developed a draft law on reforming migration policy, which, in particular, provides for the use of information systems to search for illegal migrants.

Citing the Interior Ministry’s press center, TASS notes that the bill implies the widespread use of the capabilities of modern information systems and special tools to search for illegal migrants.  

On September 30, the bill “On the conditions for entry (exit) and stay (residence) in the Russian Federation of foreign citizens and stateless persons” was submitted to the government for consideration.

According to it, migration mechanisms will be changed.

Thus, a register of unscrupulous employers, as well as persons inviting and receiving foreigners, will be kept.

If adopted, a special law enforcement regime of controlled stay will be introduced for foreigners whose presence is undesirable on the territory of the Russian Federation, but they cannot leave the country.
