36 Years Old RA Citizen received his RA Citizen’s Passport for the First Time

Artak Voskanyan, who was born in 1975 applied to Tavush AARC and informed that the Tavush section of the Passport and Visa Department of the RA Police refused to change his old passport of the USSR citizen and to provide the Passport of the RA citizen with reasoning that he did not have military registration.
A. Voskanyan is registered in the village Khashtarak of Tavush marz. The process of obtaining the RA citizen’s passport had come to a deadlock because once on some unknown reasons he failed to register in the military registration and enlistment office in result failed to pass the compulsory military service and thus did not have the necessary military documents.
However, it is due to mention that at the age of 19, he came to the military registration and enlistment office to register there.  But he was informed that his name is missing from the lists and that they shall “call” him in future.
In addition A. Voskanyan had repeatedly applied to Ijevan military registration and enlistment department with request to register him. However he received a reply that the issue of his military registration may be solved only in compliance with the Law of the Republic of Armenia on Citizens who failed to complete Compulsory Military Service through violation of the established Procedure and only when the citizen shall pay the sum of 1.800.000 (one million eight-hundred thousand) AMD. However Artak Voskanyan never tried to escape from military service.
A. Voskanyan had applied to different more or less competent authorities with hope to solve the problem. Yet, all his efforts were useless. All of them answered that Voskanyan’s military registration issue shall be solved only within the framework of the Law of the Republic of Armenia on Citizens who failed to complete Compulsory Military Service, and only then he shall be provided a passport.
On 20.05.2010 the lawyer of Tavush AARC applied to Ijevan office of Tavush section of the Passport and Visa Department of the RA Police with request to clarify the ground of refusal to provide passport to A. Voskanyan.
On 24.05.2010 Ijevan office of Tavush section of the Passport and Visa Department of the RA Police replied that Voskanyan’s request to provide a passport was denied based on the fact that did not have military registration.
On 03.09.2010, Mrs. Arpine Yeghikyan, advocate of Tavush AARC compiled and filed an action to the RA Administrative Court against Ijevan office of Tavush section of the Passport and Visa Department of the RA Police claiming to bind the mentioned institution to provide the RA citizen’s passport to A. Voskanyan. On 10.11.2010 RA Administrative Court met the claim and obliged Ijevan office of Tavush section of the Passport and Visa Department of the RA Police to provide the RA citizen’s passport to Artak Voskanyan.
On 26.11.2010, Passport and Visa Department of the RA Police appealed the court decision.
On 29.03.2011 the RA Administrative Court of Appeal considered the appeal and declared 10.05.2011 as the day for pronouncement of judgment.
However, prior to pronouncement of judgment, Ijevan military commissariat registered A. Voskanyan without any payment. Further, Ijevan office of Tavush section of the Passport and Visa Department of the RA Police, which was the respondent in the case, provided him the RA citizen’s passport.
It is due to mention that A. Voskanyan has serious health problems, which require urgent medical intervention and operation. However the hospitals refused to do this without a certificate of identity, and at the same time the corresponding government authority refused to provide a temporary certificate of identity. Tavush AARC helped A. Voskanyan to acquire a temporary certificate of identity as well, and he was able to receive a timely medical treatment.
Now A. Voskanyan has the passport of the RA Citizen and soon he will receive his soldier’s book next week.
