My mother and I have different surnames so immigration officers often ask for a birth certificate.
Today I applied for my Internal Passport Of Russia. To apply, I had to hand in my birth certificate. The application takes 10 working days or less, but I leave the country in around 7/8 working days.
I am worried the application couldn’t be completed in time. This isn’t a problem as the passport can be held for a year, before my next visit. But the issue is, I won’t be able to leave the country if my passport isn’t ready as I can’t collect my birth certificate.
What can be done in this case?
