TOMSK, Jan 4 – RIA Tomsk. The requirement to submit fingerprints and photographs for migrants, introduced in Russia at the end of December, will primarily affect foreign students in the Tomsk region who will arrive after the New Year holidays, senior inspector of the migration department of the Regional Office of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Larisa Konkova told.

According to Izvestia, on December 29, 2021, a federal law came into force which requires mandatory fingerprinting of migrant workers, as well as of all foreigners who came to Russia for more than 90 days. In addition to fingerprints, they must submit a photo and undergo a medical examination.

As the inspector explains, the law obliges to undergo a medical examination, and then with an identity document and certificates come to be fingerprinted and photographed.

"Foreign students in January will go for fingerprinting unequivocally, as many students go home for the holidays," Konkova said.

According to her, foreign citizens coming to the city of Tomsk and to Tomsk region must undergo fingerprinting and photographing at Proletarskaya Street, 33. In the region, foreign citizens may undergo this procedure in four migration offices: in Asino, Parabel, Kolpashevo districts and in Strezhevoy.

As Konkova explained, migrant workers have 30 calendar days to pass dactylography, those who come for over 90 days for purposes not related to labor activity, including students - 90 days. The requirements apply to citizens of all countries, except Belarus, and they also do not apply to children under 6 years of age.

If a foreigner refuses to submit to medical examination, fingerprinting or photographing, he faces a reduction of the period of temporary stay, which may lead to deportation in the future.

Earlier it was reported that about 20 thousand foreigners entered the primary migration registration in the Tomsk region for 11 months of 2021. Half of them are students. Most of all in the Tomsk region are students from Kazakhstan.
