Citizens of the Russian Federation can have two passports - civil and foreign. The first is received upon reaching the age of fourteen. The second can be done immediately after birth.
An application for obtaining a general civil passport is filled out at the district office of the Office of the Federal Migration Service of Russia. The employee responsible for receiving documents will give you a form. Fill in all the fields in it, indicating the last name, first name, patronymic, gender, date and place of birth. In addition, write the marital status, last names, first names and patronymics of parents, place of residence and place of obtaining a passport. Also indicate the reason for the issue or replacement of the document. Sign and decipher the signature.
On the back of the passport application form, there are columns intended for those who change their old passport to a new one. Enter there your previous personal data (last name, first name, patronymic), number and date of issue of the previous passport. If you have a valid foreign passport, enter its number, series and date of issue in the required line. You can find this information on the nineteenth page of a general civil document, where the corresponding seal is affixed.
In addition to the application, in order to obtain a general passport, prepare the following documents:
- birth certificate (copy and original);
- old passport, if any;
- an insert about citizenship;
- 2 photos;
- a receipt for payment of the duty (200 rubles).
An application for obtaining a foreign passport can be printed out on the official website of the Office of the Federal Migration Service or on the portal of public services. In addition to filling out personal data, you need to answer questions about obligations that may prevent you from going abroad. Then indicate all places of work, service and study over the past ten years. Be sure to write the date of admission, position, name of the organization and its permanent address. On the back of the document, fill in the box, indicating the number and series of the passport that is already available. The one who receives the document for the first time does not need to write anything. Put the date, signature and transcript under the questionnaire.
Together with the application for a foreign passport, the employee of the Office of the Federal Migration Service must provide:
- passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation;
- photo (for a biometric passport - 2 pcs., for an old-style document - 3 pcs.);
- a receipt for payment of the state duty (the cost of a biometric passport is 2500 rubles, the old model is 1000 rubles);
