- Being a former USSR citizen, and not applying timely for a passport of independent Kyrgyzstan he remained a person without a definite status for almost 30 years. This category of persons can be documented through the citizenship determination procedure in the Citizenship Commissions of the SRS District Departments – the lawyer says. - The case of Abdiraimov Halimzhan was complicated as the application to the above-mentioned commission required presenting a package of documents, including a USSR passport, a birth certificate, and documents confirming permanent residence in the Kyrgyz Republic for the last 5 years, which he could not collect on his own as some of them have been lost. It was necessary to recover them by searching the archives.
During legal support, all the necessary documents were prepared, where a lot of work was done at the local government level, in various archives, in the registry office, including the digitization of the birth certificate, obtaining PIN and much more.
After collecting all the necessary documents, an important part of the process awaited Halimzhan Abdirayimov: a complex procedure before the Citizenship Determination Commission at the Department of Civil Status Records, Passportization and Population Registration of the Aravan district, where the lawyer represented his interests.
