Did you manage to apply for a discounted visa? Or get a driver’s license 30% cheaper than the market? Hurry up! Sale season on public services ends exactly at midnight on January 1st. Such is the “New Year’s gift” from Ministry of Finance.

Recall that now in Russia you can pay duties with a 30% discountif you do it through the public services portal. For example, if you issue a new passport for 10 years, then you will pay a fee of 5,000 rubles on a bank receipt. And if you submit documents at the State Services and pay a fee there, then you will only get 3,000.

This discount was introduced by the authorities in 2017 to raise the popularity of the public services portal. At the same time, they immediately announced that the measure was temporary. Initially, the “attraction of unprecedented generosity” was planned until 2019. Then it was extended until January 1, 2023. And then the Ministry of Finance announced: there will be no more extensions, from January 1, the shop will be closed.

“The revenue part of the draft federal budget for 2023–2025 has been drawn up taking into account the abolition of this discount,” the ministry said.

It turns out that in order to save on duties when paying for public services, we have less than three months left.
