If I have delayed the replacement of a passport for valid reasons, do I still have to pay the fine?

If the reason was really valid, then it is not necessary. But you need to understand that not all the reasons that seem insurmountable to you are considered as such by law. Therefore, if you are told in the FMS that you are fined, you will most likely have to pay it. But it’s such a slippery slope, it’s written in the Regulations that it’s necessary to change a passport when a certain age is reached, and in case of delay it is a responsibility, but what is considered to be a valid reason is not described. Therefore, it turns out how lucky. Just be ready to be fined.
