So, just getting a passport and opening it on the first page, you will see the coat of arms of Russia and an inscription "passport of the citizen of the Russian Federation". No data from this page you in completing the documents will not need, so move on to the next.
At the top of the page you will see ten. They are divided in a certain way: 2х2х6. The first four figures is a series of your passport. The rest six the number. I.e. when filling out documents you will have to write:
Series: 12 34 (write your own series)

Number: 123456 (write your number).
A series and number will be listed on other pages of the document, but to be they are now not at the top and at the bottom of the sheet.
Now turn the passport so that you can read everything that is written on the page. Here are the information about when and by whom issued your passport. Here you will learn what is being provided for a Department of the Federal migration service for your area in your city. The same date of issuance: date, month and year. Sometimes when filling out documents in addition to these data is required to indicate the code of the Department that issued your passport. This code consists of six digits separated by a hyphen.
Now lower a look below to the next page. Here is your picture and information about you. Your surname, name, patronymic, sex, date and place of birth. These data you should know by heart.
On page 5 are details of your registration. On page 13 in men is a mark about the execution of his military duty. Turn to the next page and get information about your family situation (if there is writing, of course). But if you changed the passport (due to name change or upon reaching 20 or 45лет), then on page 19 you can find information about previous passport (its a series of number, Department code and date of issue).
