Story of the week

Russia will begin compulsory fingerprinting for foreigners at the border. The practice will be implemented at Moscow airports early next year.

At the moment, only foreign nationals applying for certain categories of work permit are required to give their fingerprints. Interestingly, citizens of Britain, Denmark, Myanmar and Namibia have also been required to submit their fingerprints when applying for visas under a trial program launched in 2014.

However, fingerprinting will soon be mandatory for all foreign nationals entering the country.
