Uzbekistan and Russia discuss with the largest employers a pilot project on the entry of labor migrants
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- The Moscow government, together with a number of federal agencies and major employers, discussed the implementation of a pilot project to attract Uzbek citizens to Russia to carry out labor activities in the field of construction.
The visiting meeting in Tashkent was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Labor of Russia, the Ministry of Construction, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Ministry of Health, the Department of Economic Policy and Development of the City of Moscow, the State Budgetary Institution "Multifunctional Migration Center", the press service of the Department of Economic Policy and Development of the City of Moscow reported.
During the meeting of the working groups, the participants of the meeting discussed the algorithms of the procedures required for the entry of foreign citizens into the territory of the Russian Federation: medical examination, exam in Russian language proficiency, fingerprint registration, verification by law enforcement agencies, as well as vaccination against coronavirus, after which foreign citizens will have the opportunity to entry to the territory of the Russian Federation to work in construction companies at the request of employers.
According to Nikita Stasishin, Deputy Minister of Construction and Housing and Utilities of Russia, construction companies in Russia need qualified foreign labor. “Over the next decade, Russia needs to build more than a billion square meters of housing, projects in the field of railway construction, energy, industrial production. For their implementation, professional personnel are needed. Today, with the participation of the largest construction organizations in Russia, we will discuss step-by-step procedures for entering the country of 10 thousand labor migrants from Uzbekistan to work at construction sites in our country,” he stressed.
Kirill Purtov, Minister of the Moscow Government, Head of the Department of Economic Policy and Development of the City, noted that about 300 thousand citizens of Uzbekistan apply for patents for labor activity in Moscow annually - more than half of the total number of labor patents. That is why Uzbekistan became the first country with which Moscow began cooperation within the framework of an organized recruitment of labor migrants: a representative office was opened in Uzbekistan in March
“Multifunctional Migration Center will help Moscow employers in the selection of labor migrants. The main task today is to facilitate the procedures for processing documents for entry into Russia, transferring some of them to the territory of the country of origin, to carry out high-quality measures for the organized recruitment of labor migrants and to provide Russian employers with the necessary qualified personnel,” the minister emphasized.
