Passports Lost or Stolen Overseas
If you are overseas when your passport is lost, immediately go to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in that country. You will receive assistance in obtaining a new passport so that you can travel back to the United States.
Passports Lost or Stolen in the United States
Passports must be reported lost. To do this, complete Form DS-64: Statement Regarding Lost or Stolen Passport with as much detail as possible regarding the lost passport (see Resources).
New Passport Application
To apply for a new passport, complete Form DS-11: Application for a U.S. Passport. Include all required information on the form, but do not sign it until you go to the passport office or acceptance facility (see Resources).
Birth, naturalization and citizenship certificates are forms of acceptable proof of citizenship. These documents are sent off with the passport application, but they will be returned to you.
You must show identification, such as a driver's license, when re-applying for a passport that has been lost. A photocopy of this identification must be submitted with the application.
Photos and Fees
Photos are required for all passport applications. The photos must be in color, identical and taken within the past six months. Check with personnel at your local passport office or acceptance facility for the appropriate passport fees.
