What should I do if my U.S. Passport is lost or stolen?
If you are outside the United States and you have lost your U.S. passport or it was stolen, contact the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate for immediate assistance. You cannot return to the United States without your passport.
If you are in the United States, you should report your missing passport to the U.S. Passport Agency as soon as you can to prevent identity theft. The TravelDocs process for replacing a lost or stolen passport combines this reporting step with the new passport application process to get your replacement passport in your hands FAST.
When you need to travel sooner rather than later, Travel Document Systems can get your passport application processed in a fraction of the time it would take going through the direct application process.
