New Federal Law Making It Easier for Foreigners Whose Children Are Russians to Acquire Russian Citizenship

On June 28, 2009 the President of the Russian Federation signed a Federal Law amending Articles 6 and 7 of the Federal Law on the Legal Status of Foreign Citizens in the RF and Article 14 of the Federal Law on RF Citizenship.

The changes to the Federal law on RF Citizenship provide for a simplified procedure for foreign citizens or stateless persons living in the Russian Federation and having an underage child, a Russian citizen, or a child of age who is a Russian citizen and recognized as disabled, to acquire Russian citizenship.

This norm shall apply, in particular, if the child’s other parent, who is a Russian citizen, has died or by a court ruling is deemed missing, disabled or deprived of parental rights.

Since the changes are made to the second part of Article 14 of the Federal Law on RF Citizenship, with the Federal Migration Service of Russia having sole jurisdiction over its practical application, one should ask this service for any additional explanations regarding the operation of the new provisions.

Concerning the Extension of the Passport’s Validity from 5 to 10 Years

In the course of the work on the Draft Federal Law on Introducing Amendments to Federal Law No. 114-FZ of August 15, 1996 on the Procedure for Exit from and Entry into the Russian Federation the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation has proposed making the appropriate changes to the part of this law concerning increasing the period of validity of a foreign passport from 5 to 10 years.

We believe that a positive solution of this question meets the interests of Russian citizens and from many points of views is of benefit to the state.

First of all, this will significantly ease passport formalities for the citizens of the Russian Federation, who, in particular, will thus change the relevant documents more seldom. This is particularly important for our compatriots permanently resident abroad, for whom the foreign passport is the main document identifying their personality and the possession of Russian Federation citizenship.

In addition, it should be borne in mind that the present term of validity ???????????? of the Russian foreign passport (5 years) may actually grow shorter for reasons outside the holder’s control. Thus, in the case of applying for a foreign visa many embassies demand that the passport should be valid at least 6 months after the expiry of the visa.

In view of the foregoing, and taking into account the experience of foreign countries it was suggested that the question be considered of increasing the period of validity of a foreign passport from five to ten years. (Source: Ministry of Foreign Affairs)
