If your passport is lost or stolen while you are overseas, report it immediately to the local police and to your nearest embassy or consulate. A consul can often issue a replacement passport, although the speed of this emergency service may vary widely. Contact information may be found in the Embassies & Consulates section.
Note that passports reported lost or stolen are invalidated and can no longer be used for travel.
You must appear in person to obtain a replacement U.S. Passport. To replace your lost or stolen U.S. passport, submit the following forms in person at a Passport Agency or Acceptance Facility:
- Form DS-11: Application for a U.S. Passport, and
- Form DS-64: Statement Regarding a Lost or Stolen Passport
Obtain Form DS-64: Statement Regarding a Lost or Stolen Passport from the closest U.S. embassy or consulate or online at travel.state.gov/passport/forms/ds64/ds64_845.html. Once completed, send to:
