“OTK-group” have been proposing legal services in the area of migration law since 2002. We engage in the processing of permit documents for employers and obtaining legal permission for foreigners wishing to work in the Russian Federation (plastic card) (reference), including highly qualified specialists (ВКС) (reference) and specialists in international contracts.
Our company’s goal is to help foreign citizens and their employers to get a visa for Russia, and the utmost priority and importance is given to obtaining a work visa.
As a rule, a foreign qualified specialist must first have a “Letter of Invitation” to enter Russia (link), and this is possible only in the case when an employer hires him. Depending on the category of the foreign citizen, it may also be a requirement to obtain a Russian language certificate, a voluntary medical insurance agreement and a residence registration.
Our company can organize the Russian language examination for foreign citizens, furthermore we can help you prepare to pass this exam, by thoroughly reviewing the correct answers for these complicated questions. In addition, for those foreigners who plan to continue living and working longer in Russia, we can arrange for a residence permit for the Russian Federation.
Europeans, US citizens, Japanese and residents of other countries are our regular clients for obtaining visas for Russia. Mostly, these are business or tourist visas, which are issued in the shortest possible time – just 1 day. Please note that renewal of these visa types into a “work” visa is not possible.
Additional information on the procedures for the registration of these documents, as well as timescales, can be read in the relevant sections of our website, or by writing an inquiry on our website.
