The new regulations impose restrictions on people who lose or damage two or more passports within five years. In this case, their passports are issued for a period of one year, unless they have a stay abroad for more than one year. year.

The amendment to the law sets a deadline for starting the application process for a new passport, which is six months before the expiration of the old passport, but in some cases the application can be submitted earlier. Such situations include changes to personal information or data in the passport, damage to the passport, wear and tear of the passport, because the passport has no blank pages, or in case the photo no longer matches the appearance of the face.

The application for a new passport can be submitted 6 months before the expiration of the valid passport, and an additional passport is required.
