    It is the first time something has happened

    Hello,

    We say: It is the (first,second etc) time something has happened.

    What difference does it make if I use simple past ?

    Ex:
    A) It is the first time she has lost her passport.
    B) It is the first time she lost her passport.

    Thank you for your consideration and guidance.
