In certain cases a decision may be taken that the sojourn (residence) of a foreign citizen or stateless person in Russia is undesirable. For instance, if the person's stay is illegal, if he has not been permitted to enter or if his stay (residence) is a threat to the state's defence or security, public order or public health.
A procedure is provided for a decision to be taken in such cases, with a territorial body of the Federal Migration Service preparing materials and the decision being taken by the director of the Service.
Such decision serves as ground for refusal to issue or extend a residence permit, for annulment thereof and for later refusal to allow entry into Russia.
If a person whose sojourn (residence) is deemed undesirable fails to leave this country he will be deported.
