What’s with the stamps? Can someone please explain to me why they put these little stamps on every document? Does it somehow make it more “official?” Just seems like an archaic system to me!
But should I be surprised? After all, I am in Lebanon..
What's with the stamps?

It’s somehow “indirect” taxes collected by the government.. Ottoman bullshit in the 21st century..
Indirect taxes? How much is that stamp like 100 lira?
100 lira on this doc + 3,000 on another application+250LL in a certificate * thousands of people having paper word /day * 365 days = good amount of money by only making ppl put silly small things on their documents!
Yeah I guess you’re right..I still think they should tax cigarettes and alcohol more! But that would likely result in a public outcry! What is the solution?
Agree with Dany

Wow, you’re on fire today🙂
Go Dani😀 i think this is ur 3rd post and counting, i’m loving it.
as for the stamp, i’ve got no clue why they do it. like u said, after all you are IN lebanon!
Thanks Simon! Guess I have a lot to talk about today! You just might see a fourth!!
Just another way to collect money from the people🙂
I don’t see how an “archaic” system in a thirld world country is weird.
It is just the government’s way of siphoning money out of people. You’d be surprised where you can find them.
