Imagine…!! You have been planning a 5 to 6 days international tour with your family for six months. All have been going fabulous and all the obligatory preparations and arrangements are done appropriately. You reach the airport with your fully packed bags and so exciting and cheerful family on your date of flight and you go through the airport checking officials. Suddenly, you get breaking news that you are not going to board your flight from a checking official at the airport while checking your passport …..Ah!! What will be your reactions….? Shockingly, you will ask the official, why so….? He will say that there is a cartoon drawn in your passport which is strictly not admissible in any official passport so you will have to postpone all the plans and come with us instead of going to catch your flight…..oh no!! Annoyingly, you will punch on the wall and give a hard look to your children and shout on your soul mate. You will be just like, what’s going on? Now your international tour will remain a dream for you and your family and your money and most awaited exciting plans will go in vain. It will be disappointing for you but do you know? You may be penalized for the same.
An identical incident happened with a man who was going to South Korea with a group of people. His Thailand passport was found to have some kind of drawn symbol and written material and in lieu, he was stopped to board his flight and guess what, he was going for a group tour which he had to cancel. Also, the Thailand official authority warned the people to avoid defacing their passport again. So be responsible and caring toward your passport and avoid defacing your passport otherwise you can miss your flight on the date of your flight.
I remember another recent incident that happened with an Indian citizen who was penalized rupees five thousand from the court for not keeping safe his passport. He was stopped to travel to any foreign country due to a damaged passport. That person told the court that he had to go to a foreign country and for the same; he went Delhi to apply for a visa. He stayed in his friend’s house where the incident took place. His passport was in his pant pocket and the maid put his pants into the washing machine for washing without taking any permission and his passport also washed out with clothes. He admitted his carelessness toward the security of his passport and paid the penalized amount to the court.
