Cape Town - South African-born Josh Strauss will be available for Scotland's Six Nations clash against France on Saturday despite losing his passport.
According to the BBC Sport, Strauss was in danger of missing the encounter after his South African passport went missing ahead of the trip to Paris.
The Scottish Rugby Union on Wednesday confirmed that the issue had been resolved and the No 8 will be in contention to take on Les Bleus.
It is believed that Secretary of State for Scotland David Mundell added his weight to the bid to get Strauss the right to travel to France.
Strauss, 32, has played 19 Tests since making his debut for Scotland in 2015.
