Law requiring certain categories of citizens to prove absence of drug addiction

July 14, 2015

Vladimir Putin signed Federal Law On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation.

The federal law obligates foreigners seeking to obtain a work patent in the Russian Federation to prove and certify they are not suffering from drug addiction or have not used narcotic or psychotropic substances without prescription. Certification includes a medical examination with chemicotoxicological tests to detect presence or prove absence of narcotic or psychotropic substances or their metabolites in a human body.
