Interaction with the migration service is an important stage in the recovery of lost documents. It is also necessary during the initial obtaining of a passport of a citizen of Ukraine after the age of 18. Given the work load of the State Migration Service, as well as the likelihood of the influence of bureaucratic and human factors, legal support for the identification procedure will be very appropriate. You can order such a service from the specialists of the legal company “Prikhodko&Partners”. Our experts specialize in various areas of law, including migration law. Therefore, we will qualitatively help in accompanying such a procedure as establishing an identity.

How is identity established?

There are situations when a person has lost all documents certifying his identity. If in the period before the full-scale invasion such situations occurred rarely, today, unfortunately, they have become more frequent. In such cases, it is necessary to apply to the State Internal Revenue Service to obtain documents proving identity.

There are other situations when such a procedure takes place. For example, sometimes persons who are older than 18 years of age apply to the State Immigration Service to get their first passport. If such a person does not have a birth certificate, then it is worth submitting an extract from the State Register of civil status acts of citizens. The said register contains information, including information about state birth registration.

What information can be taken into account?

If the applicant has not provided any documents with photo cards that would identify his identity, he submits a corresponding written application to the State Migration Service with information about himself, which the representatives of the migration service consider by verifying the specified information. For such a check, the State Internal Revenue Service may apply to various state bodies and structures. In particular, these are the National Police, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Ministry of Justice, bodies of the Federal Security Service, military units and commissariats, educational institutions, penitentiary institutions. This is not an exhaustive list. Representatives of the migration service can request information contained in all available registers of the state and enterprises, if there is a need for a more thorough check of the information provided by the applicant.

Also, in parallel with this, there is a check of information based on the accounting data that the territorial bodies and subdivisions of the Ministry of Internal Affairs have. When it comes to persons living in the temporarily occupied territory, the information is compared with the data contained in the State Register of Voters.

What to the State Migration Service representatives do if the person is not identified?

For those rare situations when no information about an individual is found in any registers and databases, there are also solutions. Identification can be carried out based on information obtained by interviewing relatives and neighbors, whom the person indicated in his application. The results of these testimonies are included in the relevant act. Its form is established by the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

What is the maximum period determined for identification?

Identification of a person involves certain time frames. It should not be held longer than 2 months. The result of this procedure is recorded in the Conclusion, the form of which is prescribed by the current legislation of Ukraine.
If the representatives of the migration service failed to establish the identity, it can be done in court. It is necessary to submit an application to establish a fact that has legal significance. The application states that it is necessary to issue documents that will prove identity and confirm Ukrainian citizenship. Such an application is submitted to a local court of general jurisdiction.
