There are no pages in the foreign passport: what to do?

When a person travels a lot or goes abroad on business, a situation may occur that his foreign passport runs out of pages. The question arises as to what to do in such cases. In all situations related to the issue of migration law, you can contact a migration lawyer, who you will find in the team of the law firm "Prikhodko&Partners". At the same time, we will tell you about the general legal aspects that apply to such cases.

Is it possible to extend the validity period of the passport?

As of today, it has become impossible to affix a stamp to extend the validity period of a passport of a citizen of Ukraine for travel abroad. This option was available for quite some time after the start of the full-scale invasion, but on November 1, 2023, the Consulate General of Ukraine stopped providing it. And since October of last year, this situation has also existed on the territory of Ukraine.


At the same time, what was written above does not mean at all that the problem will remain unsolved. Instead of renewing your passport, you can now submit documents to the Consulate General of Ukraine to issue a new passport. You can also do this in Ukraine by using the services of the state enterprise "Dokument". Centers of this company are also regularly opened abroad. For example, they are in Warsaw, Gdansk, Krakow, Wroclaw, Istanbul, Milan, Berlin, Cologne and a number of other large foreign cities.

What should you do when faced with such a problem abroad?

If you are in a country where there is no consulate of Ukraine, you should not worry. With such a passport, you can still buy tickets and cross the border. However, you should not delay solving the problem, because you can do it 2-3 times at most. If you translate this into a practical plane, then you will have the opportunity to come to the country on the territory of which the Consulate of Ukraine performs functions compatible with the country of your stay.

In addition, it is worth remembering that you have the right to keep 2 passports for traveling abroad, however, when applying for a passport through the Consulate, you will have to hand over your previous passport when receiving a new document. This is due to the fact that consular offices can issue a new passport only on the basis of the previous one.
