When a newborn appears in the family, it is not only a great joy for the parents, but also a great responsibility and trouble. Including those related to the need to issue a birth certificate for a baby, and then - to register him at the place of residence of the parents or at the place of residence of one of them, if the father and mother are registered at different addresses.
Birth certificate is the main document of a citizen of Russia until the moment of obtaining a passport. It is a confirmation of the fact that he has Russian citizenship and the rights and obligations arising from this. And the registration of a child is needed so that parents can get a compulsory health insurance policy (MHI) for him. In addition, a document is required to register a child on a queue for a kindergarten, this is very important, since in many regions of Russia there are chronically not enough places in preschool institutions. A certificate will also be needed when registering a monthly allowance, as well as to resolve the issue of paying maternity capital, because for this it is necessary to present a certificate from the place of residence, where the registration of the child must be indicated.
It is clear that young parents have “mouths full of trouble”. Sometimes they simply have no time to reach the registry office and the passport office. And if you still have to queue up there? To help them, an additional service has recently been introduced: the ability to apply for state birth registration via the Internet.
To do this, first, one of the parents needs to register on the website "The Unified Portal of State and Municipal Services". Then find the required registry office, go to the "Application form" column, and then select either the "Birth registration at the request of the parents" or "Birth registration at the request of a single mother".
Enter all the necessary information there and indicate a convenient date for you to visit the registry office. If there is confirmation that your application has been accepted, you will only have to visit this institution at the specified time and receive a birth certificate for your baby. There is no fee for this service.
