Features of the biometric passport and the rules for obtaining it in the Russian Federation.

Getting a passport of a new type became possible since 2006. The issuance of a document from the cities of federal significance and Kaliningrad began. Now biopasports can be issued in any region of Russia. It is issued to both adults and children. It depends on the identity of the applicant how much they will have to pay for issuing a new generation passport. Who issues the document? Which package of documents should be prepared for the biopasport of the child and adult citizen of the Russian Federation? What is the difference between a biometric passport and an old one?

Features biopasport.

A biometric passport in the Russian Federation is a new type of certificate. This definition he received because of the presence in it of the biometric parameters of a person. They allow you to more accurately determine a person’s identity. As such parameters are physical characteristics, for example, fingerprints, hand shapes, features of the structure of the eyes and the distance between them and much more.

In the biological passport of the resident of the Russian Federation there is a microcircuit or an electronic chip. It contains a color photo of a person, information about the issuance of the document and information about the birth of the owner. Later, the new version was modified, namely, added fingerprints. For information, fingerprints of the citizen of the Russian Federation are taken. This situation has been in force since 2015.

In fact, the foreign passport of the updated sample is not visually different from the previous one. He has a paper cover. There are more pages in it. The first one is made of plastic, it has a black and white copy of the owner’s image and a personal signature. The original photo is on the chip. Photo is three-dimensional. The main parameter of biometrics in the passport is the distance between the pupils of the eyes of the citizen. And with fingerprints, the passport looks more reliable means of identifying the citizen of the country. Only “Gosznak” has the right to print such a document in the Russian Federation.

The new document has the same validity as the old passport. Few countries advise using biopasports on their territory. Over time, the number of passports issued under the old rules will decrease. Moreover, the period of suitability of an improved passport is twice as large. Certain subtleties of design do not bring difficulties to citizens.

The choice of a document for children.

In the biometric passport of the parent, the minor child will not be inscribed, as is the case with the old form. For a minor child, a separate foreign passport should be requested.

Choosing the document that allows the child to leave the country, guided by the following points. For a child who has not reached the age of 12, they prefer to make an old passport, valid for 5 years. For 10 years, children vary greatly in appearance. It is enough to enter a small child in the parent’s passport if it has a simple sample.

After 12 years, there are two periods of registration of the passport: 12-14 years and 14-18 years. According to the legislation of the Russian Federation, the price of a document containing an electronic chip is lower when it is designed for a child under 14 years of age. The old document costs 1000 rubles. Pay for a new sample you need 1500 rubles.

In the period of 14-18 years the issuance of a foreign passport of the previous type has a cost of 2000 rubles. For a biometric passport in this time period, a Russian citizen will pay, as an adult, 3,500 rubles. Photos and fingerprints for biopasports are taken regardless of the age of the children. But this procedure is preferable for minors after 12 years.

You must submit documentation in the presence of the child. This can be done by a legal representative. It should be noted that when you print a child in the parent’s passport, he can not leave the Russian Federation without their escort. If there is a need to send a child with trusted persons, it is better to arrange a personal passport for him. Whether it will contain an electronic chip with fingerprints and photos depends on the age of the minor and the wishes of the parents.

Procedure for acquiring a biopassport.

How much is an updated passport and where do they get it? It is not difficult to draw up a document. You can obtain a biometric passport in the regions of the Russian Federation by visiting the office of the Federal Migration Service of the Russian Federation. Conduct submission of documentation better at the place of registration or registration. Registration of a new type of passport should be expected as much as the old one. Term of manufacturing will make one month.

Having applied to another FMS department, the applicant must wait for a passport that contains an electronic chip, up to 120 days. Employees of the service when applying for a passport will determine the date of the visit to issue the document.

The validity period of the old document is 5 years. The new look will last for 10 years. It needs to be changed when making changes to personal data or appearance.

For simplified submission of documentation, a citizen can use the service on the portal of the State Service. This service allows you to apply for a simple and improved passport. Before submitting documents, you should register on the site. This will allow you to open access to your private cabinet and continue to use the system. Pay the state fee for issuing the passport can be on the same portal or in the Sberbank office. Documents in electronic form are sent for analysis. If everything is in order, and they are accepted, the time will be allocated for the arrival to the employee of the FMS unit for photo and fingerprinting. The citizen of the Russian Federation will be informed about this in an e-mail. To receive a biometric passport is necessary only in the Federal Migration Service, where an old document is issued.

How much will it cost to receive a biopassport? For a Russian citizen who has reached adulthood, the cost of the service is set at 3,500 rubles. For a simple document will give 2000 rubles. For residents of the Kaliningrad region, it is not necessary to pay a biometric passport.

A package of necessary documentation.

Obtaining official documentation provides for the existence of an established list of securities. The list varies from who owns the biopassport. It includes:

The completed version of the application, submitted in an amount of 2 pieces; original / copy of the passport of the citizen; photo 35 * 45 mm (2 pcs.); a valid passport (when the expiration date has not expired); the original and a copy of a ticket of a person liable for military service or a document from the commissariat (men of draft age); receipt of payment of state duty.

The application form is taken at the office of the Federal Migration Service of the Russian Federation or via the Internet. Presented photos will be pasted on each of the completed forms. The photos will be made using a certain technology in the office.

Children will receive a document with a microcircuit according to the established list of documents. It consists of the following components:

statements from the parent / guardian; a photo; the original and a copy of the passport of the resident of the Russian Federation (upon reaching the age of 14); original and copies of the passport of the parent / guardian; the original and a copy of the birth certificate (up to the age of 14); the original and a copy of any certificate attesting to citizenship; receipts for payment of the mandatory state fee.

Fingerprints, taken for recording in a biometric document, are used only for their intended purpose. This statement was made by the representatives of the Federal Migration Service of the Russian Federation.

Electronic passports: waiting for implementation.

Legislatively approved the pilot launch of production and application of a new type of civil passport. This opportunity has been considered for many years. An electronic passport is a card. Like a biometric passport, it contains a microcircuit. The electronic document will be valid for 10 years or until the change of personal data, appearance, sex. Issue it will be from birth. Although it is not a question of canceling a standard birth certificate. The electronic passport received at birth is subject to the first change after 14 years. The chip will contain the name, information about the birth of the cardholder, details of the document, SNILS. If the owner wants an electronic document, they plan to apply the TIN and information about the parents and guardians (for minors). To print a photo of the cardholder, digital printing will be used.

Issuance of such a passport, as well as the old version, will be carried out by the departments of the FMS. If it is lost, it is supposed to appeal to the employees of the FMS or MFC, and not to law enforcement agencies. The terms of manufacturing of the electronic passport are not to be increased.

Previously stipulated that the mass production and issuance of this type of certificates will begin in 2018. Then moved to January 2018. According to the last decree of 16.04. 2018 mass-produced electronic cards are not expected until mid-March 2018. After the introduction of the card, the validity of the paper certificate will be valid for several years. The issuance will continue until 2025. Valid passports, according to the rules, are 5 years, that is until 2030. The prospect of changing the paper version of the passport to a new one, with an electronic chip looks tempting. Therefore, Russian citizens are constantly interested in the implementation of such a document.

A biometric document is a more reliable way of identifying citizens. His receipt may be subject to certain questions. For their resolution and positive result, Russian citizens can turn to legal assistance. The simplest option is to ask a lawyer who works online. In this case, the least amount of time will be spent on receiving responses.
