As in any other document, mistakes are sometimes encountered in the passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation. Whether it's the last name, place or date of birth. If the change of the surname and even the name and patronymic is quite frequent, then making corrections to the date of birth is very rare.
The date of birth is important for calculating, for example, the retirement age. All information about your age is entered in the passport only on the basis of a birth certificate issued by the vital statistics authorities. Thus, in order to make corrections in the passport, more precisely, to receive a new passport with a corrected date, you need to make corrections in the entries contained in the registry office.
To do this, you will have to prove that the entry in the registry office contains an error. To do this, you will have to find and provide supporting documents. This may include the medical records of the maternity ward of the hospital where you were born.
Write an application to the registry office at the place of residence or storage, requesting changes to your birth records. Attach supporting document and birth certificate to be replaced with the application. In case of refusal, you must submit an application to the court. If the court considers the evidence to be indisputable, by its decision it will oblige the civil registry office to make the necessary corrections.
You can also change the date of birth in the case of the adoption of a child. But for a maximum of three months. In this case, contact the registry office with a statement and a certificate of adoption.
There are a number of circumstances in which your date of birth may also be legally changed. For example, under the witness protection program. In this case, contact the registry office with documents confirming this right.
Contact the Federal Migration Service of the Russian Federation. Write a statement of the established form with the requirement to replace the passport based on the changes made. Attach to it:
1) a civil passport, which must be replaced;
2) two photographs 3, 5x4, 5 cm;
3) a birth certificate with a new date of birth.
If a mistake in the passport was made by a specialist of the Federal Migration Service, then you will not have to contact the registry office. In the application, simply point out the FMS error.
