Foreign passport — the passport of a citizen of Ukraine for traveling abroad is a document that certifies an identity, confirms a person’s Ukrainian citizenship and gives the right to leave Ukraine and enter Ukraine. A citizen of Ukraine cannot have more than two passports for traveling abroad.
What must be done to get a passport?
- Collect the necessary documents and come to the «Passport Service»
- Submit the necessary documents
- Pay for the service (on the spot)
- Take a picture (on the spot)
- After receiving the SMS, come and pick up the child’s foreign passport
From the age of 12, the presence of a child is mandatory, both during registration and when issuing documents
All children can take pictures on the spot!
Children aged 12 and over are photographed only on spot!
If your child under the age of 12 may have problems with photography: he is afraid of the flash, cannot sit still, does not close his eyes for more than 2 seconds, or the child cannot be pulled out of the playground without tears, and you want a good photo for the documents.
We recommend using the services of a photo studio and bringing us 1 photo card measuring 10×15 centimeters. The photo card should show 70% of the face, clear contours, white background, on high-quality matte photo paper, without defects.
We recommend that you read the detailed requirements for a child’s photo to understand how to take a photo correctly, or even practice at home.
