Illegal immigration into the Russian Federation decreased by almost half in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic according to the Russian Interior Ministry. Many nationalities from the former Soviet Union travel to Russia for work as the economy is generally better than in most CIS member nations.

“Within 12 months of 2020, the regional departments of the Russian Interior Ministry prevented 40,989 cases of law infringements regarding work activities conducted by a foreign citizen, or a person without the Russian citizenship, on the territory of Russia, which is 40% decline against the previous year,” the ministry’s press service stated.

“Due to the decrease in foreign citizens’ arrivals in Russia, caused by the [novel coronavirus] pandemic, a number of procedure violations in regard to entry or stay in the country has been halved,” according to the ministry. “In all, over 204,000 violations of this kind were reported [in 2020], which is 51.8% drop against the previous year.”

The ministry’s press office also stated that 5.5 million foreign citizens were registered staying in Russia last year, while the average figure previously ranged between nine and eleven million. Almost 900,000 of the above-mentioned 5.5 million foreigners had temporary residence permits, wrote Russian state news agency TASS.
