How to inscribe a child in the passport
If necessary or at own will, citizens of our country have the right to enter data on their children in the passport. However, not everyone knows the subtleties of this process, and some believe that this mark is not needed at all. How to write a child in the passport? What is it for? Where to apply for entry in this mark?
To inscribe a child in the passport is entitled to any of the parents, even in that situation, if they are registered and live separately from their baby. However, the data are only for those kids who are not yet 14 years old. Let’s say that if you exchange your document because you turned 45, or because the name has changed, and your children are already 14 at that time, they will not be marked with them.
Until 2007, the duty to enter information about children in parents’ documents was on the registrar’s offices. Now the situation has changed.
At this time, if you have decided to enter your children in the passport of the Russian Federation, you will need to go to the FMS department (or simply the passport office). You should go to the unit at your place of residence, and it does not matter that your baby, for example, can have a registration and live at a different address. This innovation is explained by the fact that the record of the presence of children serves as an additional sign confirming citizenship, and all tasks and issues related to the establishment of this status fall within the competence of the FMS.
