If your passport is lost or stolen, report the loss/theft to the local police in the area in which it occurred within 24 hours. In order to replace the passport, it will be necessary for you to appear personally at the Embassy. You should submit your application for a replacement passport as soon as possible after the loss or theft is discovered.

In addition to the normal requirements for a passport, you will need to bring Passport form DS-64 (Statement Regarding Lost or Stolen Passport) and your police report to the Embassy. You should bring as many documents as you have proving your citizenship and/or identity as possible (for example, a copy of your lost passport or other documents).

Emergency Passports

If you have an emergency reason for travel in 2-3 weeks, please first check to see if we have an online appointment before your travel date.  To check for an appointment, please click here. If you need to travel prior to our earliest appointment, you may call the Embassy to schedule an emergency appointment. Before calling, please read all the instructions on this page.

Emergencies are generally considered to be:

  • a lost or stolen passport with an urgent need for travel within the next 2-3 weeks.
  • a medical emergency in the United States
  • an emergency situation that does not meet the above criteria but is severe enough to warrant emergency action

Please be aware that the rules for emergency passport issuance are strict, and a consular officer will determine if your situation meets the standard for an emergency.  If your situation is not considered an emergency, you will need to book an online appointment, and return to the embassy on that day.  Emergency passports have the same fees as regular passports but have very limited validity.  The passport will expire shortly after your travel to the U.S.

If you believe your situation meets the criteria for an emergency, please bring:

  • your valid photo ID and a copy
  • proof of your travel plans (tickets, flight itinerary, confirmation,etc)
  • copy of any police report if your passport was stolen
  • medical records if your emergency is based on a medical emergency
  • a photocopy of your old passport (if available)
  • One passport photograph:  The Embassy will reject any photographs that do not meet the specified requirements
  • please see additional rules for minors under the age of 16 here.
  • Fees (PDF, 276 KB) – $135 for applicants age 16 and older; $105 for applicants age 15 and below; in cash only (USD)
