Police presented a project to reduce the validity of the passport

The police submitted a new draft for public discussion, which plans to amend the government’s decision.

Currently, according to the decision № 821 of December 25, 1998 of the government of the Republic of Armenia, the passport of an Armenian citizen is valid for 10 years, except for the citizens under 16, as well as those obliged to serve in the army.

According to the draft decision of the Government it is proposed to set the validity period of the passport of the Republic of Armenia at 2 years.

In case the draft is adopted, there will be no need to make changes to the revenues, expenditures and deficit of the state budget of the Republic of Armenia.

Another draft envisages establishing a maximum period of renewal of the passport validity of a citizen of the Republic of Armenia in foreign countries.
