/NOVOSTIVL/ The main reasons for the ban on foreigners from entering the territory of Russia were violation of the terms of stay and illegal labor activity.

"The main reasons for making decisions about not allowing foreign citizens to enter the Russian Federation are violation of the terms of temporary stay, as well as illegal employment in our country," the Russian Interior Ministry said in a statement.

It is noted that foreigners in respect of whom decisions are made not to allow entry into Russia are mostly citizens of the near abroad who enter the Russian Federation in a visa-free manner.

In total, last year, according to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, entry into Russia was prohibited for 189 thousand foreigners, a year earlier this figure was more than 250 thousand.

As reported, foreigners working in Russia on labor patents transferred 43.5 billion rubles to the regional budgets for 11 months of 2020.
