The article elucidates influence of involvement in religious practices of migrants from Central Asia in the process of their integration in Russia. We have constructed a typology of migrants according to their level of religious involvement, showing its connection to religious and ethnic identity, impact on the practice of inclusion of migrants in the labor markets and relationship with the host society. Also we show processes of assimilation, integration and socio-psychological adaptation of migrants in the light of their religious activity.
