Permanent Residence Permit in Russia

The permanent residence permit (PRP) is a document that confirms the right of a foreign national to reside permanently in Russia for 5 years with no restrictions to freely cross the border of the Russian Federation.

The residence permit in Russia significantly expands the rights of a foreign national. For example, the holder of a residence permit does not need a work permit, and his or her employer does not need to undergo all the related procedures and formalities. In most cases, a residence permit can be repeatedly extended. Unlike the temporary residence permit, there is no restriction on the region where the holder can work and live.
