YEREVAN, July 18. /ARKA/. Before August 10 Armenia will ratify its agreement with Russia on staying of one country’s visitors in the other country, Gagik Yeganyan, chief of the Armenian territorial administration ministry’s migration service, told journalists on Thursday.
He said Armenia will adjust its migration law to international criteria, approaches and principles, including those adopted by the European Union and the Common Economic Space.
Yeganyan said the government approved a program of activities for 2014-2016 at its regular session on Thursday.
“The program implies implementation of 77 particular measures, legislative changes and governmental decisions,” he said. “Nine international agreements are planned to be signed as well.”
The new legislative changes will lay groundwork for Armenian citizens’ return home from other countries and reintegration in their homeland. They will also prevent irregular migration, help in settling problems in employment of foreigners in Armenia and protect rights and interests of labor migrants from Armenia in the Common Economic Space countries. -0----
