New order of receiving international passports for Russian citizens abroad
The Government Commission approved a draft law meant to simplify the required paperwork in order to receive identity documents. It is proposed to allow diplomatic missions and consular offices of the Russian Federation to send passports directly to Russian citizens by post (recipients are required to pay for shipping costs).
Currently, Russian citizens abroad must visit foreign diplomatic missions twice, the first time in order to submit the application, a second time in order to receive the document. This takes up plenty of time and is expensive. With the adoption of the draft law, citizens will be required to visit foreign diplomatic missions just once.
