What to Do If Your Passport is Lost or Stolen

Step 1

Make sure your passport is really lost or stolen because once you've reported it missing, it immediately becomes invalid and you have to apply for a new one.

Step 2

If your passport is lost or stolen, report it immediately to help prevent identity theft. Submit Form DS-64 online or by mail.

You can report your passport lost or stolen three ways:

Step 3

You are starting over as if you were applying for your first passport.

You must apply in person for your new passport. Where you are and how soon you need your passport determines where you should apply. See the list below.

Use Form DS-11, following the steps on our How to Apply for Your First Passport.

Don't forget to bring a filled out Form DS-64 with your application if you called to report your passport lost or stolen.

Use our downloadable Lost or Stolen Passport Checklist to make sure you have everything.
