Ukrainian Passport

Couple of questions about the ukrainian passport process

 

My wife is hoping to head back to Ukraine very soon to visit family once AP or GC gets approved.  She still has the old passport (non-biometric one) and that one expires in a year or so.  Its time to get a biometic one for a number of reasons.

 

1) If she goes back to Ukraine for a week or so can they turn around a new passport in a week?  

2) In the US when renewing you passport you have to turn in the old one, and when they issue you a new one, they return the old passport with holes punched through it.  Will she have to give them the old one? 

3) If she gets to keep the old passport, can she travel with the old one as long as it is valid?   Her other idea that if they cant turn it around in a week - is that she request a biometric one when she returns this time when she goes back the following time she will pick up the biometric passport (she said she could let them know this or have a family member pick it up, etc, etc)  If she does that my concern is that they invalidate the current passport as the new one has been issued.  Then she could have trouble returning to the US, etc

4) Other option is to have the Ukraine Embassy in DC do it but can't find out if 1) you have to get them your current passport and what the timeframe on that is.

 

Thanks for any help.

Usually 10 days as minimum

 

2) In the US when renewing you passport you have to turn in the old one, and when they issue you a new one, they return the old passport with holes punched through it.  Will she have to give them the old one? 

If the old one is valid and there are visas, they won't take it away and no holes will be made. 

I think if it is just valid, they won't take it away. 

3) If she gets to keep the old passport, can she travel with the old one as long as it is valid? yes

  Her other idea that if they cant turn it around in a week - is that she request a biometric one when she returns this time when she goes back the following time she will pick up the biometric passport (she said she could let them know this or have a family member pick it up, etc, etc)  If she does that my concern is that they invalidate the current passport as the new one has been issued.  Then she could have trouble returning to the US, etc No one will be able to pick it up but her, I guess. 

4) Other option is to have the Ukraine Embassy in DC do it but can't find out if 1) you have to get them your current passport and what the timeframe on that is. Consulates usually do passports and its a longer process. No one will take her old passport. 

 

Thanks for any help.

Let her read here. It says about extending passport and also about new biometrical passport.
