MOSCOW, February 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Rostec Corporation will join the project to create electronic passports to be issued to Russian citizens from January 1, 2016.
Rostec and the Federal Migration Service (FMS) signed the relevant agreement on Wednesday, February 12. “Rostec has all the necessary competencies to implement this project. We are confident that the use of our IT, encryption and security expertise will help the Federal Migration Service implement such an ambitious and important project,” Rostec Director-General Sergei Chemezov said.
“An electronic passport will not only simplify all procedures that require identification documents but will also help improve the Federal Migration Service’s record-keeping system,” FMS Head Konstantin Romodanovsky said.
The two agencies will also pool their efforts in conducting applied research to improve the use of advanced technologies for providing and monitoring public services in the field of migration.
The existing internal passports and new electronic passports will be used simultaneously until 2025. The use of the former will be terminated in 2030.
An electronic passport, which will actually be a card, will carry its holder’s photo, his full name, address, individual taxpayer and insurance numbers, and digital signature will be contained in a special chip, and it will also have a fingerprint section.
