The portal “Gosuslugi” announced a temporary suspension from February 2 of accepting applications for the issuance of new-type passports with electronic media, valid for 10 years.

The message published on the portal says that if a citizen has applied for a new passport through the State Services, then he should wait for a response from the department and follow the instructions in the response. If the application was made through the MFC, then you need to contact the migration department at the place where you applied for a passport.

Goznak reported that due to the increased volume of applications for the personalization of foreign passports, the need for microcircuits that are built into the form of a foreign passport has grown significantly. “Currently, the manufacturer of these microcircuits, Mikron JSC, is reconfiguring equipment and optimizing technological processes in order to meet the increased demand for the microcircuits under discussion in the future,” the organization said in a message published on Telegram.

Goznak also promised that “the rhythm of production and personalization of foreign passports will be restored within a month.”

In turn, the Ministry of Industry and Trade reported that the production of chips for electronic passports was not suspended.
