  • COLLECTION OF A PASSPORT

  • A passport document is collected from the passport organ where the application for its issuing was submitted.


    A passport document is collected personally with the exception of minors and the totally incapacitated, for whom a passport document may be collected by one of the parents or guardians by appointment of court.


    On collecting a passport or a provisional passport you submit your currently held passport document, which a passport organ annuls by punching the whole of a passport book, with the exception of the pages containing valid vizas, in such a way as to cause permanent damage to the machine-readable area at the bottom of the page on which the holder’s personal data is put and by cutting the third page of the cover of the document along the stretch from the middle of any of the edges to the center of the cover. The annulled passport and the provisional passport are returned to the applicant.


    The person collecting a passport document checks with the help of an electronic reader if the personal and biometric data included in the passport is in accordance with the actual state and confirms the receipt of the document on the passport application( signature and date).


    In justified cases, especially when reaching a consular office is particularly difficult, the consul may depart from the requirement of a personal collection of the passport document  upon a justified written motion to depart from the requirement of a personal collection  of the passport document( forms are made available by a consular office).


    The consul sends a passport document to the indicated address through the operator  performing the postal service  or carrier, including the security of the handed-over document  or informs the person in question in writing about the lack of evidence justifying departure  from the personal collection  of the passport document.


    In case of the transfer of the passport document the person concerned does not check with the help of an electronic reader if the personal and biometric data included in the document  is in accordance with the actual state.
