The pilot project on issuing electronic passports to Russian citizens is to start in 2016.
Crimea is also among the regions where the citizens will be able to get a new document, reported Tass citing the Head of the Russian Federal Migration Service Konstantin Romadanovsky.
After issuing new documents in the pilot regions, the area of electronic passports granting will be gradually expanded. The document is to be used as a private key access to health and social services. The size of the passport will not differ from the usual plastic card; it will contain all the owner’s personal data.
Earlier on, the Federal Migration Service of Crimea and Sevastopol merged into a single organization that incurred long queues. The ministry did not report whether it would be a mandatory procedure or Crimeans can keep the old document.
