Russia plans to change the rules for obtaining citizenship  07.10.2019 14:25

Foreigners applying for a Russian passport may be allowed to retain their first citizenship.

This idea is reflected in the accompanying documents prepared by the Ministry of Economic Development for the draft of the federal budget for 2020-2022.

As explained in the department, the realization of the migration policy in the future will make it possible to abolish the main requirement of "the denial of other citizenship".

It is also planned to simplify the procedure for obtaining temporary admission, residence permit and citizenship for foreigners who have studied at Russian universities and leading educational institutions of the CIS and Baltic countries.
