What to do if your passport is lost or stolen while abroad?
The first thing you need to do is go to the local police station to report the theft or loss of your passport. This procedure will protect you in case of misuse of your passport. You will also receive a police report describing the circumstances of the loss or theft.
Tips: a scan or photocopy of a passport should be made before international trips. Photocopies should be kept in a location other than the actual passport, for extra security, in case something happens to the original document.
You must also report the loss or theft of your passport at the nearest embassy or consulate of your country of citizenship. If you are in possession of copies or scans of your passport, do enclose them in your report.
The following are the documents that must be prepared for processing lost/damaged passports at the immigration office:
1. Police Certificate (Lost or Stolen Passport)
2. Identity Card;
3. Family Card;
4. Birth certificate and/or School Diploma;
5. Old passport (especially for damaged passports).

Parking: Shift to “P” Or Pull the Handbrake First?
The parking brake is essential to your safety and those around you. If you have an automatic gearbox, apply the handbrake first, then put it in P. This ensures that the car’s weight isn’t resting on the parking pawl. If you don’t use the handbrake, you’ll be putting constant pressure on the parking pawl and transmission components which will eventually fail, leading to costly repairs.
Your car’s brakes are controlled by something called a parking pawl.The parking pawl locks the transmission's output shaft to the transmission casing by engaging a pawl (a pin) that engages in a notched wheel on the shaft, stopping it (and thus the driven wheels) from rotating.When you shift into “P” first, the weight of the car rests on that tiny metal bit we call the parking pawl. That’s not great. When you do this, you will hear the unpleasant “clunk” when shifting out of “P” later.
If you have an automatic transmission, apply the handbrake first, then put it in P. Shifting to 'P' before pulling the handbrake is how you damage your automatic transmission.
Omicron, symptoms and how to deal with it
Based on the results of the study, the most common characteristics that indicate a person is infected with the omicron variant of the Covid-19 infection are as follows:
1. Sore throat but no cough
A sore throat accompanied by a cough is one of the common symptoms when someone is declared infected with the Covid-19 virus.
But in the Omicron variant, the sore throat tends to be itchy, dry, even without coughing.
2. Muscle and joint pain
Reporting from the Gavi.org page, the first reports of Omicron symptoms in South Africa showed a reaction to lower back pain.
In addition, this pain also continues to spread to several other areas such as joints, and muscle pain (myalgia).
Another symptom of Omicron is fatigue so that the body becomes weak and even easily feels tired even though it is not strenuous activity.
These signs of fatigue are constant because they are usually felt by other variants of Covid-19 sufferers.
A painful headache accompanied by a fever like the flu is an inflammatory reaction that the body is fighting a virus.
In Omicron symptoms, this headache feels throbbing, pressured, and sometimes accompanied by a stabbing feeling of mild to severe intensity.
5. Don't lose your sense of smell
In the previous Covid-19 variant, infected patients will experience impaired sense of smell and taste.
But for the Omicron variant, it's the opposite. Patients do not lose their sense of smell and taste so they still feel normal as usual.
