BEIRUT: Lebanese expatriates who have registered to vote in the upcoming elections can apply for a new Lebanese passport at the heavily discounted price of LL1,000 ($0.66), Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil said Wednesday.

"Lebanese registered to vote abroad can obtain a new passport for only LL1,000, very quickly and without the cost of [shipping], in order to be able to use it [as ID] in the upcoming parliamentary elections," Bassil tweeted.
