BAYAN LEPAS: Flood victims whose passports were lost or damaged during the recent floods in Penang can replace them for free before Dec 31.

Immigration director-general Datuk Seri Mustafar Ali said the replacements could only be done at Immigration Department offices in Penang.

"Applicants who lost their passports need to lodge a police report before they make applications at the Immigration offices.

"Those with damaged passports need to bring the passports and evidence too," he told a press conference after distributing financial aid to 70 department personnel whose houses or quarters were affected by floods on Nov 4.

He added that the decision to replace the passports without charge was made after discussions with the Home Ministry and out of concern for Malaysians affected by the floods.
