American Citizen Services can replace lost, stolen or mutilated passports upon verification of your identity, and your citizenship, with a valid passport. An emergency, limited validity passport may be issued for immediate travel (please bring proof of travel: airline ticket or electronic ticket if your departure is imminent), or if you will not be traveling within two weeks you will be issued a full-validity passport (processing period approximately 2 weeks).
In order to obtain a replacement passport, ALL applicants, including children, MUST appear in person at the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy with the following items:
- A police report substantiating loss or theft;
- All available identification such as: birth certificate, driver’s license, photocopy of the missing passport, or expired U.S. passport;
- If you have no current identification with you, you should bring along an American friend or relative with his or her passport to vouch for you.
- Two (2) identical, recent color photographs taken full face, with a white background, measuring 5 cm x 5 cm (2 in x 2 in). Please ask the photographer for photos for a U.S. passport otherwise you may be given the wrong format.
- All applications for children under 16 require both parents’ or legal guardians’ consent. When applying for a child under 16, the parent (or legal guardian) who is accompanying the child must sign the application form DS-11 in front of the consular officer and submit his/her signed passport whether he/she is a U.S. citizen or not. Non-U.S. citizens may submit a signed passport or a signed national photo identification card. If one parent is unable to be present, he/she MUST submit a notarized statement of consent authorizing passport renewal for the child and a legible photocopy of their passport or ID card. Please click here to download the Statement of Consent: Issuance of a Passport to a Minor Under Age 16. You must also submit an original or legible photocopy of the child’s birth certificate.
- Please remember to bring your, or your child’s, social security number.
