Update: It looks like the proposal got rejected [link]. Yay.
Losing your passport is one of the lousiest things that can happen. If you lose a passport, you will always be questioned in airports and at embassies for years and years, for fear of someone else misusing it.
A new law is being proposed in Kuwait these days, a fine of Kd 100 will be levied to replace a lost passport and KD 30 to replace a damaged one. That’s like rubbing salt on wounds. It’s bad enough to lose a passport, now we get financially punished for it too.
Moral of the story is: Make sure you don’t lose your passport. And if you do, the KD 100 will be the least of your worries.
