Expats have to suffer from the ghats for renewing their passports and sending their bodies if someone dies there. When the passport expires, it takes 5 to 6 months to get the passport if you apply for renewal at the embassy.
Moreover, if the expatriate dies, the embassy does not get financial support to send his body back to the country. Then the expatriates had to beg money and send the body back to the country.
