Can a country deny renewal of the passport to one of their citizens who is in a foreign country? If they do so, that would leave the person without valid identification or valid proof of citizenship. Is that legal? How to act in that case?

My personal perspective and answer.

Can a country deny renewal of the passport to one of their citizens who is in a foreign country?

YES.. Malaysia Passport Laws can deny and is legal.

Current policy is to come HOME to make a new passport with current enhanced security features after expiry of the old passport.

Welcum HOME

If they do so, that would leave the person without valid identification or valid proof of citizenship.
In the case of expired passport, the existing passport is proof of citizenship. In the event of lost passport, the Embassy will issue temporary travel docs back to the source /home country ONLY. Your passport (active or expired) while in foreign land is the valid identification with the biometrics stated within.

Home Embassy
Your passport, at the your Embassy located overseas is proof of identification and the validity period will be as stated in the passport. In the absence of a passport, your proof of identity is your National Identity Card, Driver’s Licence.

In the absence of all the above, your biometrics can be taken physically at the Embassy (or at the mortuary) and would be sent back by the Embassy to home country for positive identification (example- a mutilated cadaver).
——————————-

The issuance of a passport is a privilege and the passport rightful owner of the passport is the Country Govt. The bearer, as in the name stated in the passport is merely a bearer with no legal rights to make any demands.

For those who has dual citizenship, the country’s passport that you have used to enter can only help you in the event of immigration issues. If both countries embassies deny your existence.. byebye.. you have just become stateless and be locked up in one Immigration Camp to perform hard work in stone quarries for time immemorial (in some countries).

Do Google the Citizenship Laws and Passport Laws of your home country and you can understand what I meant.
