Identification Process: Applying by Mail

If you cannot visit our office, send your application by mail or with a delivery guy. You'll need to have these documents translated and notarized (if your documents and application are not in Russian).

What documents to prepare

You most likely need only the following two:
  1. Copy of your passport's main page (the one with your photo) and the page with registration if you have one.
  2. Filled out and printed out identification application
If you are a public official or a relative of one, or if you have a beneficial owner or a beneficiary, you need to full out an additional form.

What to notarize

If your passport is in Russian, you need to notarize your passport copy (and that is all).
If your passport is not in Russian:
  1. Notarize your passport. If you cannot do it in your country, notarize your signature on your application.
  2. Then find a translator: ask them to translate your passport and its notarized copy into Russian.
  3. Notarize the translator's signature.
  4. Check, whether your country is in
