Permanent residence permit
Permanent residence permit is given to foreign citizens or stateless persons. Its goal is to secure their right to stay in the State legally and provide the ability of identification.
The first step in obtaining a residence permit is the official permission to immigrate to the chosen State. According to law, there are two groups of people that might obtain this document: the ones on a quota system and those not within it.
In legal terms, people with residence permit are assimilated to citizens. There are only two differences. Such people are not allowed to participate in national elections and may work at government structures. The sphere of employment is not restricted.
The rights of people with the residence permit
At the legal level this permit provides opportunities of:
• Official employment;
• Visa-free crossing of the borders;
• Staying in the country for an unlimited period of time.
The person with residence permit may combine several types of labor activities and is not obliged to pay for medical insurance and mandatory fee.
