Foreign passport for a child

Reading time: 4 min.

Currently, submitting documents for a child's foreign passport is not a problem. Parents have the opportunity to determine whether they want to issue a passport for their child within the standard time frame, or whether they are interested in an urgent service. Both options are available.

Issuing a foreign passport for a child: features

It is possible to issue a biometric-type foreign passport even from the birth of a child. To do this, you need to contact the territorial division of the State Internal Revenue Service closest to you. Before the start of martial law, in order to visit the migration service, you had to make an appointment using the electronic queue option. Today, this function does not work in all regions. So visitors try to just come early to get a better place in the live queue and not wait long.

If the child is under 12 years old, the parents submit the documents. Among the list of these documents:

  • child's birth certificate;
  • passport of one of the parents and certificate of personal identification number;
  • receipts certifying that the fees stipulated by the applicable regulatory acts for such service have been paid.

If you are already issuing a second foreign passport for your child, then you must also take the first one.

How is the process of photographing?

If the child has reached the age of 12, the photo is taken in the territorial unit itself. This service does not require additional payment. If the child is under 12 years old, there are 2 options for taking pictures. The first of them is taking pictures on the spot in the local medical center, if the child is not afraid of flash and can calmly look into the camera. If not, then you need to submit one color matte photo measuring 10 by 15 centimeters, which must meet the standards provided for it. Parents of babies usually take advantage of this opportunity.

Issuing a foreign passport for teenage children

From the age of 12, a necessary condition for issuing a foreign passport is the child's personal presence, since it is from this age that digitized fingerprints are required to be entered on an electronic medium.

If the child has reached the age of 14, then among the documents that he submits for the issuance of a passport for traveling abroad, there must be an ID card, if available. A certificate of TIN, if any, is also required.

Sometimes you can hear questions about whether a child needs to change his foreign passport when he turns 16 (by the way, this is the age at which you can cross the border unaccompanied by adults). No, you do not need to change your passport. And in the document itself, you can see its validity period.

Above, we described the general features of the procedure for issuing a foreign passport for a child. However, in practice, many situations may arise that require individual clarification. For example, we are often asked how to act correctly when the child's documents are not accompanied by parents, but by other legal representatives. And we talk in detail about the list of documents needed to certify such a representative role in each specific case.

We also legally help to optimize the procedure, which can be important when you need urgent documents. So apply. We will qualitatively help and contribute to ensuring that your interaction with the State Migration Service is fast, comfortable and understandable.
