International students will be able to work while studying in Russia without needing to file additional documentation, thanks to a new bill that is being introduced in the upper house of the Russian Parliament. 

Foreign students will be allowed to find employment based on a reduced list of required documents, Russia’s state-run TASS news agency reported. They won’t be subject to work-permit quotas as a result.

The new law easing current work-permit requirements for students comes into effect within 180 days of Putin’s signing, or August 4. Education professionals expect the simplified rules to reduce dropout rates over an inability to afford tuition fees and living expenses, the Professionals in International Education (PIE) website reported last fall when the legislation was introduced.

Russia is the world’s seventh-most-popular destination for international students, according to PIE. The Institute for International Education estimated the number of international students from 170 countries in Russia, including those from China and India, at almost 335,000 in 2019.
