A foreign passport is the document without which it is impossible to cross the state border of Ukraine. If at the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia there were still some relaxations in this matter, today the situation has relatively stabilized, and the requirements for crossing the border have largely returned. If you want to issue a passport of a citizen of Ukraine to travel abroad quickly enough, you should use the help of lawyers who are able to help in this matter. Such professionals work at the Prikhodko&Partners law office.
What is the content of the service?
We do not issue a passport, as there is a clearly established list of state structures that are entrusted with this duty. However, we do everything necessary to ask you about the procedure and speed it up. Thus, clients are offered effective legal support for the procedure of issuing a foreign passport.
We have enough knowledge and developed work algorithms to legally speed up the production of the document. This is relevant for those clients who issue a passport to travel abroad not with the aim of using it in the long term, but with specific plans for the near future. And we know what to do so that the long production of the document does not become an obstacle to these plans.
Where can I issue a foreign passport?
In Ukraine, this option is assigned to 3 institutions. They are the state enterprise “Dokument”, the State Migration Service (its territorial subdivisions) and the National Center for Migration and Refugees. You can make a foreign passport in other countries as well. This is necessary when:
- the person left Ukraine using an internal passport when there was such an opportunity;
- the validity period of the previous foreign passport has expired;
- you need to issue the first foreign passport for the child.
In this case, a passport for traveling abroad is issued at the diplomatic institutions of Ukraine. Here, too, we can provide remote support for the procedure. And in some countries, there is a citizen service center called “Passport Service”. You can use its services in Warsaw, Wroclaw, Gdańsk, Krakow, Bratislava and Prague. By the way, this list is regularly updated. Therefore, when advising their clients, the specialists of the Prikhodko&Partners law firm talk about this in more detail.
How long will the passport be valid?
The validity period of a foreign passport depends on the age of the person issuing it. For example, if it is about a person who has reached the age of 16, then the document will be valid for 10 years. And if a passport is issued for a child who has not yet reached this age, it will be valid for 4 years.
