How long is the travel document valid for?

The validity of passports is ten years for persons 27 years of age and older, five years for persons 4 to 27 years of age and two years for persons up to 4 years of age. 

When submitting the passport application the citizen provides biometric data – a photograph, two fingerprints, as well as a handwritten digital signature. Minors of up to 12 years of age are not fingerprinted.
