Entry into Russia to be opened for 44,000 Kyrgyz migrants in 2017

Till the end of 2017, about 44,000 migrants from Kyrgyzstan will be removed from the black list of Russia due to the expiration of the ban on entry into the country. Deputy Chairman of the State Migration Service of the Kyrgyz Republic Almazbek Asanbayev told today at a press conference.

It is noted that as of today, the lists includes 110,000 people. Most of them committed administrative violations before Kyrgyzstan’s accession to the Eurasian Economic Union. Migrants have exceeded their period of stay or worked in the informal sector of the economy without drawing up necessary documents.

About 52,000 Kyrgyz citizens have been deported from Russia by court order. To withdraw them from the black list, one must appeal to the second instance court.

"Until the end of 2017, 44,000 citizens will be withdrawn from the blacklist after the end of the ban on entry. Within two years, our citizens will be excluded from the list for the same reasons. In the future, there are practically no grounds for getting into this list, "Almazbek Asanbayev said.
