Decree of October 25, 2021 No. 1818

From July 1, 2022, it will be possible to issue electronic duplicates of paper documents in multifunctional centers of state and municipal services. The list of such documents and the procedure for their execution by his resolution was approved by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

In total, the list contains 19 documents. Among them – a military ID, certificates and documents confirming the right to receive social support, information about income, a certificate of adoption, various medical certificates and court decisions. Also on the list are documents on education and qualifications (including those issued abroad), certificates of the registry office issued outside of Russia, and their notarized translations into Russian, documents on disability received abroad.

The procedure itself for making duplicates is simple. The employee will scan the document, certify it with an electronic digital signature and return it to the owner. Then, within an hour, an electronic duplicate will appear in the citizen’s personal account on the public services portal. Thus, with the subsequent appeal to the MFC or the authorities, the citizen will no longer need to personally provide the original of this or that document, and even more state and municipal services can be issued remotely.

Electronic duplicates of documents, as well as information on the creation of these duplicates, will be stored indefinitely in the personal account on the public services portal.

Expanding the functionality of the MFC is one of the stages of work to improve the provision of public services. Mikhail Mishustin has repeatedly drawn attention to the importance of this work. So, during the annual report to the State Duma, the head of the Government emphasized that interaction with government agencies for people and business should be as convenient as possible.
