Failing to report lost IDs could result in fines: Saudi Passports Department

RIYADH: The Passports Department urged residents to report their lost passports and Muqeem cards (non-Saudis) within 24 hours or face a SR1,000 to SR3,000 fine, reported Al-Madinah newspaper.
The department also called on non-Saudis to renew their Muqeem (resident) IDs before they expire through the Ministry of Interior’s website after payment of fees through banks. Carrier of an expired Muqeem card will not be able to benefit from the department services and must pay a SR500 fine for the first time and more if repeated.
The Muqeem card is the modern substitute for the residency license that was implemented two years ago. The ID is valid for five years and is renewed online and delivered by mail.
The department called on Muqeem ID carriers to have it on them when traveling.

Badges providing basic Two Holy Mosques information given to children, the elderly and non-Arabic speakers

DUBAI: A new system of badges has been created to help children, the elderly and non-Arabic speakers that are lost, be reunited with their groups while performing the pilgrimage.
The badges carry information and symbols on the various sites of the Two Holy Mosques which can be shown to others to help get directions – the Saudi state news agency SPA reported.
The Director of the General Department of Social Services, Misfer bin Amer Asiri, said the guides would be issued to children accompanying their families during Hajj and Umrah.
Each badge will show symbols of each location that lost person can show to helpers, who will then provide directions.
Meanwhile the Zamzam Department has also provided vehicles to carry water containers to those in need of rehydration.
