Replacing a Lost or Stolen Passport
Like all documents, passports sometimes get lost or stolen. However, due to the importance of this particular document, you should report the theft or loss immediately.
If the loss or theft happens while you're in the U.S., call (877) 487-2778. Or, promptly complete Form DS-64: Statement Regarding a Lost or Stolen Passport and mail it to:
- U.S. Department of State
- Passport Services
- Consular Lost/Stolen Passport Section
- 1111 19th St. N.W., Suite 500
- Washington, DC 20036
Just so you know, once you've reported a missing or stolen passport, it's automatically canceled. Even if you find it later, it can't be validated. If you do come across it, though, send it to the address listed above.
