Or maybe it’s still old?
The population of the country has a choice ― along with a new generation passport, you can also issue an old-style passport for 5 years. The legal force of both types of passports is the same (although it is worth noting that in some countries there are internal rules according to which entry of Russians is possible only by biometrics). New generation passports were introduced in 2005. They contain an electronic media of information about their owner. In 2013, in Moscow, the Moscow region, St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region, the degree of enhanced document protection was increased by introducing an additional parameter ― scanning two fingers of a citizen’s hands. Since 2015, this technology has been used everywhere.
When choosing the type of passport, the service’s customers prefer biometric ones, because in addition to the content of personal data in electronic form (simplification /acceleration of the border control procedure), the main advantage of such a document is the validity period of 10 years ― twice the validity of a regular passport. There are also more pages in the new passport. Registration of a biometric passport allows you to minimize the efforts associated with the direct procedure of registration of the document (I made a new generation passport, and ride for 10 years).
If earlier the structures involved in the design and production process were familiar with the specifics of manufacturing new passports, now, after a 4-month suspension of the processes, probably every resident of the country knows 1 more difference between the passports of the old and new samples. Namely, the actual period of readiness. If you apply for an old-style passport, the risks of delays in exit will be eliminated for reasons related to printing the electronic page of the bio-passport on Goznak, with delivery and clearing (removing the special code). The old passport is issued after approval of all checks, it is printed in the migration department itself, respectively, it is easier and faster to get it. If the deadline is a determining factor for you, think about which type of passport to choose.
