Employment ban and visa restrictions for Turkish nationals in Russia
March 1, 2016
The current political situation between Russia and Turkey has resulted in an employment ban for Turkish nationals in Russia, which took effect January 1, 2016.
Several sanctions have been introduced by Presidential Order No. 583 from November 28, 2015, including the complete ban on employment of Turkish nationals in Russia. This excludes Turkish nationals already employed in Russia granted a work permit. However, employers may face issues with the extension process.
