There are various subtleties of concluding a GPH contract with a foreigner. How it will be concluded with a foreign performer depends on his status and the country of which he is a citizen. Depending on the legal status of foreigners, there are three categories.
Temporarily staying in the territory of the Russian Federation
There are most of them. This category includes persons who are on the territory of the Russian Federation on the basis of a visa and have received a migration card, a temporary identity card, a certificate or a refugee certificate.
They can stay on the territory of the Russian Federation within the period specified in the visa (temporary identity card, certificate or refugee certificate) or for 90 days in total every 180 days (for those who do not need a visa).
Temporarily residing in the territory of the Russian Federation
This category includes foreigners who are on the territory of Russia and have received a temporary residence permit. This document gives a foreigner the right to reside in Russia before obtaining a residence permit.
Permanently residing in the territory of the Russian Federation
The smallest category of foreign performers. These include those who have received a residence permit in the Russian Federation.
For the first category of foreigners who have stayed in the Russian Federation, the procedure for concluding a GPH contract is more complicated than concluding it with foreign performers residing in the territory of the Russian Federation. The conclusion of a GPH agreement with foreign citizens of the EAEU member states also has its own peculiarities.
