How to get an insert on the citizenship of a child is a question that worries almost every second citizen of the Russian Federation, because a passport is now simply a necessary thing, both for adults and children. A foreign passport confirms the citizenship of a person when he is in other states, which is why, before issuing such a passport, an identity card is made and his citizenship is checked according to the documents provided. For an adult, everything is very simple, for this it is enough to provide your internal passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation, but for persons who have not reached the age of majority, there is a slightly different procedure.
Below is a list of documents that are submitted to obtain an insert on citizenship by children. I would like to note right away that the choice of documents confirming citizenship remains with the parents, and not with the authorities of the Federal Migration Service (FMS).
If both parents are Russian citizens:
- The birth certificate of your child, and with it information about the citizenship of both parents or one parent, if the child is brought up in an incomplete family.
If one of the parents is not a citizen of Russia, but the child was born on the territory of the Russian Federation:
- Birth certificate of the child and information about the Russian citizenship of one parent and the foreign citizenship of the other.
If one of the parents at the time of the child's birth was considered missing or was a stateless person:
- Birth certificate of the child and information about the citizenship of one of the parents.
If the parents of the child are adoptive parents, but the child is listed in the certificate as their child:
- The child's birth certificate and the passport of one of the adoptive parents, where information about this child is entered, or the child's previously issued passport, or an insert that was issued earlier about the child's citizenship.
Attention! By submitting the above documents, in accordance with the selected case, you will easily receive an insert about the citizenship of the child.
In addition, you can provide a child's birth certificate with a special stamp confirming his citizenship. If you have presented any of the above documents, a stamp (mark) in the certificate is not required.
To get a stamp in a birth certificate, parents need to contact the passport office at their place of residence, where they provide photocopies of their passports, an extract from the house book, a photocopy and the original of the child's birth certificate.
