“From July 1, 2022, a new passport will be issued within five working days, regardless of the place of residence, stay, actual residence or the circumstances of its replacement,” the press center said.
The Ministry of Internal Affairs added that this norm will also apply when introducing a passport with an electronic carrier. Currently, the passport processing period is 10 days if the documents are submitted at the place of residence, and 30 days in all other cases.
In Russia, paper passports are canceled upon receipt of electronic ones
In the summer of 2021, part of the changes made to the regulations on the passport of a citizen of Russia, the sample form and its description came into force. In particular, the validity period of Russian passports, which must be replaced when citizens reach the age of 20 and 45, has been extended to 90 days. In addition, the deadline for submitting an application for the issuance or replacement of a passport for minors who have reached the age of 14 has been increased from 30 to 90 days.
At the same time, the passport form itself has been modernized. Now there is no “Personal Code” in it. The last page of the form has also been changed, which now contains information for the passport holder in an accessible form. In addition, in connection with the entry into force of the decree, a citizen can decide for himself whether he needs to put down marks on registration and dissolution of marriage, on children – citizens of the Russian Federation who have not reached the age of 14, on previously issued internal passports and on existing foreign passports, on blood type and TIN.
Such measures are aimed at simplifying administrative procedures related to the issuance and replacement of passports, improving the convenience of using the main identity document, including taking into account the development of remote technologies of interaction between the state and citizens.
