Passport: Dubai man troubled by mistake of the bank

Passport: Dubai man troubled by mistake of the bank:

Ahmad Al Halabi, a Syrian national and Dubai resident, said it all started when he received a phone call from a police officer requesting him to report to the station because the National Bank of Fujairah accused him of signing a bounced cheque.

"Once I went to the station, I was shown the letter, which states that I have signed a bounced cheque on behalf of my company. I was surprised by this accusation as I am not even authorised to do so, the company manager is."

Al Halabi said the confusion happened because his name was present in the company's establishment contract along with the company manager's name, so the bank put his name in the complaint, instead of the manager's name.

He explained that although he has the authorisation to sign court contracts on behalf of the company's sponsor, he has nothing to do with the company's bank and cheque transactions.

Al Halabi added that even though the cheque was not signed by him and did not belong to him, the police held his passport for two days until he was able to prove so with official documents.

Its not a ‘get out of jail free card,’ government warns travellers

With thousands of Canadians poised to travel abroad over the holiday season, the Department of Foreign Affairs wants to remind the public that a Canadian passport is "not a 'get out of jail free' card."

Canadians are subject to the laws of the country they visit, but it's a priority of the federal government to remind them of that. In some countries, offences considered minor at home can lead to jail time.

Gar Pardy, a former director general of consular affairs, says most travellers accept that they are responsible for their actions while abroad and don't assume their government will rescue them from trouble. As well, he notes, "the percentage of people arrested is relatively small."

A recent department report said there were about 1,610 Canadians imprisoned abroad — with the largest number of arrests, by far, occurring in the United States.

Yet Canadians sometimes do expect their government to be able to circumvent local laws.

"The most recent case of some interest, of course, was in Russia," said Pardy pointing to the recent arrests of Canadian Greenpeace activists, whose supporters have demanded action from the Canadian government.

The arrest and subsequent release of two Canadians swept up during raids in Egypt also showed the difficulties the government can encounter in trying to help arrested Canadians. Such cases also raise Canadians' expectations that their passport can help them get out of difficulty.

Families of travellers who get themselves into trouble abroad are often quick to contact the media when they learn their government actually can't protect them from prosecution, Pardy added.

Federal government reports also note some of the more unusual requests for assistance Canadians abroad sometimes make of their government including: requests for emergency maple syrup, ancestral research support, and dog chauffeur services.

Taiwan will launch online passport application services soon

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is to launch an online service that allows passport applicants to fill in their personal information and make an appointment to apply for a new passport, an official said Tuesday.

The online service, which will be launched Dec. 24, is aimed at providing more convenient services, said Kung Chung-chen, director-general of the ministry's Bureau of Consular Affairs, at a regular news briefing.

The new service will allow applicants to fill in their information on the website and make a reservation online for a specific time to visit the bureau's headquarters in Taipei to finish the procedures in person to obtain a new passport or renew expiring passports, the bureau official said.

Applicants can choose a preferred time period in which they plan to visit the bureau, the bureau official said, adding that it should not take more than 20 minutes to finish the application procedure.

Currently, applicants need to visit the bureau's offices around the country and fill their application forms there. Sometimes they need to stand in a long line and spent a lot of time there to finish the procedure, the official said.

In the first stage of the new initiative, the bureau will open a new counter to deal with online application reservations, Kung said, adding that the counter will be up and running Dec. 27.

"The bureau plans to expand the service to its offices in central and southern Taiwan in the middle of next year," he added. 

Machine readable passports are must for Indians from 2015-Muscat

Machine readable passports are must for Indians from 2015-Muscat:

Indian citizens holding handwritten and 20-year passports with validity beyond November 24, 2015 will have to apply for Machine Readable Passports (MRPs).

"From November 25, 2015 onwards, foreign governments may deny visa or entry to any person travelling on a non-MRP passport," a Ministry of External Affairs release said.

The Central Government has announced phasing out of all non-MRPs from November 24, 2015, complying with the deadline by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) as part of its global drive. "The Indian Embassy is far ahead in this matter. We have crossed the struggling stage of issuing MRP passports. There are only a few and rare cases of citizens holding handwritten passports. We are moving towards a more advanced passport system," a senior official from the Indian Embassy in Muscat said.

All handwritten passports with pasted photos issued by the Government of India are considered non-MRP passports. 

All 20-year validity passports will also fall in this category. 

The government has started issuing MRP passports, which are ICAO-compliant, since 2001.

ICAO is a specialised agency of the United Nations created in 1944 to promote safe and orderly development of international civil aviation throughout the world. 

ICAO sets the standards and regulations necessary for aviation safety, security, efficiency and regularity, as well as for aviation environmental protection. 

The organisation serves as the forum for cooperation in all fields of civil aviation among its 191-member states.
