SEVASTOPOL, August 04, /ITAR-TASS/. The Sevastopol subdivision of Russia's Federal Migration Service (FMS) will perform a Passport Within Hour experiment here on Monday at 15,General Ostryakov Avenue in the office of the FMS Directorate for Sevastopol, an official in the FMS press service told Itar-Tass.
Everyone who will come to the FMS office by 11 a.m. to file an application for passport, will get the main document of the citizen of the Russian Federation within an hour.
Aleksander Aksyonov, head of the FMS Visas and Registration Directorate, is expected to arrive in Sevastopol.
The FMS hopes that the experiment will be a success. If so, the practice of issuing domestic passports within an hour would be carried on.
FMS chief Konstantin Romodanovsky said earlier that the Crimean experiment would subsequently be spread over to the entire territory of Russia.
As of now, about 1.5 million residents of the Federal city of Sevastopol and the Republic of Crimea have already been issued with Russian passports. The process of issuing the document was launched at the end of March of the current year and has been accompanied with long queues to FMS offices.
