The State Duma is out to toughen entry terms for certain countries' nationals.
The house intends to debate in a second reading, early March, a package of migration bills with numerous amendments to the acting legislation. In particular, qualifications to enter Russia will be harsher than they are now, says Vladimir Pligin, in charge of the Duma committee for constitutional legislation and statehood development. Close on a hundred amendments are coming up to the federal laws "On the Procedure of Russian Federation Entry/Exit" and "On the Legal Status of Aliens in the Russian Federation", the parliamentarian said to the media. The amendments will concern, in particular, the reciprocity principle in the international law. E.g., five-year term visas may be prolonged for expatriates whose native countries offer similar opportunities to Russian nationals. The countries that make stringent entry requirements on Russians will meet similar restrictions for their nationals. Supplementing the legislation will be extended grounds, compulsory and optional alike, for refusal to enter Russia. Among compulsory grounds, Mr. Pligin mentioned appeals for a violent change of Russia's constitutional precepts on which its statehood rests, funding terrorist organizations, masterminding and/or perpetration of terror acts, and promotion of terrorist and extremist activities. Of optional grounds, the Duma member highlighted marriage with a Russian national to obtain a visa, in case the law court has invalidated the marriage; drug addiction; contagious diseases; and rules of exit from Russia violated on a previous occasion. 45 million aliens entered Russia in 2003, with 2.6 million business, cultural and tourist visas issued, added Mr. Pligin
