Q.

How to acquire a passport for a person who has lost ALL his identity documents? My old uncle wishes to get a passport made for travel abroad but has lost ALL his identity documents. How can he now get his identity documents made once again (legally)? He is above 90 years of age and cannot get a driver's licence, doesn't own or rent a house, so he cant get sale deed or rent agreement papers also. He doesn't have any documents to produce as a photo identity as he never had a PAN card, or Voter's ID card. So how can he now acquire a passport?

He must open a bank account with his photo attested.
this can be used as proof
but he need one more proof apart from that,.

. . . "one parent is a permanent citizen and the other parent is a resident of the Republic of South Africa" ',

But . . . neither of your parents are a citizen of South Africa. Both are citizens of Lebanon, if I understand what you are saying. Do not confuse a "permanent citizen" with a "permanent resident". A citizen is a person who is a genuine South African and holds a South African passport and identity A resident is a non-South African who has permission to reside in South Africa while still holding the passport of the country where this person is a citizen in this case, Lebanon

Also, if you already are a Lebanese citizen, then you will not be able to become a South African citizen. From your birth date, I calculate that you are already over eighteen years of age.

According to the SA law . . .
" Unless you have been granted retention of your South African citizenship prior to acquiring another citizenship, you will lose your South African citizenship automatic ...more
