The new document contains a microchip with biometric information – a digital photo and fingerprints of both hands.

More than 8.5 thousand Muscovites have applied for a biometric passport with the help of a cryptobiocabin in public service centers since 2020. The cabins can be used either by appointment on the portal or without it.

Last year, booths for submission of biometric data with reliable cryptographic protection were installed in two centers of public services “My Documents”. Today cryptobiocabins work in 15 offices… With their help, the townspeople are actively issuing foreign passports for a period of 10 years.

Previously, it was necessary to contact the employees of the migration departments of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia during the working hours of the specialists and only by appointment.

The new passport contains a microchip with biometric information of a citizen – a digital photo in color and fingerprints of both hands. With the help of a special software and hardware complex, the data is transmitted to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia. The finished document is handed to the applicant by employees of public service centers who have completed the necessary training and are empowered to issue a biometric passport.

The service is available on an extraterritorial basis, that is, regardless of the place of registration and residence of a citizen in Russia. So, Muscovites receive a document in a month (if the applicant has formalized access to the state secret, the period for producing a passport is extended to three months). Guests of the capital, including those registered at the place of stay in Moscow, will be issued it after three months. The state duty for drawing up a document for residents over 14 years old is five thousand rubles, for children under 14 years old – 2.5 thousand rubles.

You can apply for a biometric passport at the My Documents offices according to the following schedule: daily from 10:00 to 22:00 in flagships and from 08:00 to 20:00 in regional centers of public services. Office addresses published here.
