Yesterday I`ve known very surprising, but also terrible for me thing: I discovered that I have been living without passport for a half year! :horror:

I am twenty years old. I thought that people in Russia change their passports when they are twenty five, but I was wrong! Yesterday one of my friends sent me some money that she owed me on my Yandex-purse. With the new laws Yandex must ask me for my passport details before I get money from my purse there. I filled in my details and saw the message that my passport is outdated! It was very surprising! To tell more, I didn`t know before yesterday, who would go to Krasnodar for an exhibition, in which the organisation where I work is taking part in the end of February. What a luck that we have found another employee who could do this! I can`t even buy a ticket for a train as my passport isn`t valid!
I imagine what should I do now with horror! There will be so much fuss with documents!:buh:

Oh, I feel sorry for you :pity: I changed passport last year and it was really awful... One good thing: the next time this horror will come only after twenty-five years, and we have time to mentally prepare.

Hey, I changed passport a month ago and it wasn't that bad. One filled request and two weeks of waiting
(But I also changed my name, and with this I have some problems :D )
So good luck to you :3

What a horrible situation... However it's not very difficult to change documents, at least I had no problems with it.) So good luck and don't panic, everything is going to be alright!

Btw I've been in a similar position last summer. My birthday was in July, and according to the law I should have changed it in a month. So I thought that this month my old passport would be yet avaliable, but imagine my surprise when it wasn't! I was in another city and couldn't even buy a sim-card for my phone because my passport was outdated. Thanks God I've managed to buy a bus ticket to get home, but it was only because our cashiers don't look in passports at all))

bet on both sides | do what you must
something about mistakes

It's better late than never.
For the topic:
By the way, the age numbers at which you should change your passport are on the last page of every Russian passport. ;-)
And I don't know why it is so, but it seems to be a common mistake about this "changing passport when you turn 25", you're not the first person I met who thought so.

Mind shall not falter nor mood waver
Before yesterday I didn't know whom my organization will send to an exhibition at Krasnodar in the end of February.

Until yesterday, ... whom my organization would send, maybe?

I don't believe in no-win scenarios
hey, guys)
new here and have a question)
are we discussing posts or mistakes?
both are ok, just asking

concerning the post: funny thing is I have a friend who got her passport invalid just by entering it's code somewhere online, so be careful in future

Thanks for all of you for your answers and countenance!

Ледяная тень, After fourty five indeed :)
As for the mistakes...

the unlonely god, Thank a lot!

Фоернутый меломан, What a horrible story! Great luck that cashier didn't look in passport!
Thank you, I wish I have no problems with it too!
As for the mistakes...

Himmelblau, Thanks!

Firesong, Thanks a lot for pointing on my mistakes! Yes, I agree with all of your corrections. I`m really grateful!

Aria1985, Yes, I know this now. Maybe it is because of the fact that sometimes people mix the ages of 20 and 45 and get 25 :)

Himmelblau, I suppose, both variants are possible, aren`t they? But I can agree, your variant is better :)

Spider N., Hello! Nice to see you here!
We are discussing both posts and mistakes :)
Oh, what an awful situation! Thank you, I`ll be carefull! :)

I meant not age, but a number of years, which will pass until the next change of the passport)

"to prepare mentally" - another word order
Adverb should be in front of the verb? Ok)

Ледяная тень, No, you have put it in front of the verb, the right order is when it`s after:)
