    OK thanks that makes things a bit clearer.
    So first i need an invite, to go to Moscow to get the work visa, once that is granted i need to get out of the country, and get in with my work Visa and then i should be issued with a work permit??

    If that correct?

    Your employer shoul arrange your work permit. You can entry the country with whatever valid visa you have. When it expires you could apply for a work visa using your work permit and your employer. As far as I know.

    As far as I know Israeli passport holders who want to stay in Russia longer than 90 days in a 180 day period need a visa. I may be wrong about this, in which case the following does not apply and all you need is a work permit.

    Assuming that it's correct and you want to spend more than half your time in Russia the procedure is something like this:

    They get permission to employ you. Then...
    1 You go to Moscow.
    2 they give you an invitation letter.
    3 You leave Russia and get a 3-month single-entry work visa at a Russian embassy (as far as I know, in any country, but this is worth checking) on the basis of that letter, and come back to Russia with it. If they have obtained the work permit for you you can now start working for them.
    4 Your employer converts the single-entry work visa to a full multi-entry 1-year work visa without you having to leave the country again.

    There may be medical tests to do in Moscow before stage 3.

    Thanks again Ian G,
    That's is great information of the procedure Ian.
    So basically for a start i just need to get a work visa, while the work permit is in the making !

    I will keep updating this as it goes along, so anyone in my situation will be smarter about the full red tape.

    I'm not sure- but I suspect your company will first need to get the work permit, before they can get you the invitation letter. (I forget whether I had to show a copy of the work permit to the consulate in Helsinki when I got - I did this in 2006 I'm sure there are others on expat.ru who have donethis more recently).
    But the fact that your passport allows you to be in Russia for 90 days without a visa probably simplifies things a lot for you as you can come to Russia before the work visa invitation is ready.

    Thanks Ian,

    I can come and go on a visa free passport, but wanted the work permit to be on the British passport.

    Ian do you know of anyone who got rejected as non of my friends in Moscow heard such a thing.

    Soory- I've not heard of people being refused visas-except where there's a clear political reason (normally high profile cases such as that of William Browder).

    By the way if you're thinking of using both passports I suggest you consult a specialist. It's possible that Russian law requires you to choose one passport- the passport you enter the country on- and use it for all purposes. So if you have a work visa on a British passport you are here as a Briton and must use your British passport for all purposes, including travel to and from Russia.
    That's possible- I am not a lawyer so can't say definitely.

    Thx Ian, That's fair enough, its fine to stick with the UK passport as long as there are visas on it.

    I understand the Bill Browder situation in some way, every country has its rules and mentality. One must not forget he is still a guest in the country.

    here are a few tips for you
    a) you should put some pressure on HR via your managers - if there is biz need HR should arrange your move
    B) usually large compnies hire special legal advisors to deal with immigration matters
    с) i am not sure that israeli passport will help - w/o visa you can enter russia as a tourist or as a biz visitor but you cannot work legally in Russia
    d) the fist step is for your company to employ you in russia is to get an employment permit - authorization to hire a foreigner. I am not familiar with hiring banking officers - potentially Central bank may play some role in approving issuance of such doc- not sure
    e) if this doc available the company can apply for work visa inviataion and your individual work permit

    f) you will need medical tests I think at the stage of getting working visa

    Please, correct me if I'm wrong here. My impression is that a medical / HIV test is only needed when you apply for a visa valid for more than 180 days at a consulate outside Russia. If you come to Russia on a 3months business visa and have it convert into a work visa (provided your work permission) no medical checks are needed.

    At least this is how it worked out for me and everyone else I know. So, as said, just an impression.

    Thanks Ilya25,

    I am sure they have the authorization to hire a foreigner and have quota, even so I believe i will qualify for the new rules for skilled personal starting in July.

    Yes i agree that if there is business to be done HR needs to sort it out! and i hope they will, If not i jess i will do it myself with lawyers or legal advisors to deal with immigration situation.

    I don't mind the medical tests as long as its in a proper place.

    It will be interesting to hear comments on the forum if things have changed from next month.

    Hi all

    Does anyone or someone who you know experienced any changes to the FMS with regards to employment of foreigners in Russia, or Highly qualified foreign specialists.

    The new rules should have started on the July 1st, are they already active, or being implemented?

    Thanks
