Timur Akpinar's answer There are, but “damages” is a broad subject, where there are different types of damages, such as compensatory, punitive, consequential, among others.

Peter Munsing's answer Travel overseas, as an Iranian, on a card that hasn't been reissued? From one of the six banned countries?
