MOSCOW, February 5 (Itar-Tass) —— Head of Russia’s Federal Migration Service /FMS/ Konstantin Romodanovsky believes it realistic to have the universal electronic card as a personal identification document.
“From July 1, we are launching the electronic exchange of documents. How will it work? An individual comes to an authority and leaves personal documents there. Electronic versions of these documents are forwarded to us, we verify the information and the necessary parameters, and by an electronic signature confirm they are correct and the data is stored with us. Here, at this stage we normally would put a stamp in the passport. But if we have a universal electronic card, we would be able by means of a similar electronic signature to insert a confirmation into the card, and nothing else is required,” he said in an interview with the Kommersant daily. “This is realistic future.”
“With the launch of the electronic cards we shall be able to lift the requirement for an address stamp in passport.”
Answering a question about a possible time frame, Romodanovsky said it would be possible in 2012-2013 already. After that, the service would require about a year for tests. Later on, the changes should be fixed legally.
“I do not believe it is impossible,” he said. “It is realistic and doable.”
