Report your physical U.S. passport lost or stolen immediately to protect yourself from identity theft. You can replace it now or later - it's up to you!
Reporting your passport lost or stolen does not automatically replace your passport. You will need to follow the directions to Replace a Passport here.
Report your passport lost or stolen by using one of the 3 options below:
Click on the tool below, and navigate to the "Report Lost or Stolen" tab.
When you report your passport lost or stolen using our form filler, we will ask if you want to reapply for a new passport. The form filler will create both a Report of a Lost or Stolen Passport (DS-64) and an Application for a U.S. Passport (DS-11) if you tell us you want to reapply for a new passport.
To replace a lost or stolen passport, you must submit Form DS-11 in person.
|You are in the United States and are traveling in 3-5 weeks or less||You may be eligible to make an appointment to apply in person at a passport agency or center to replace your passport. To go to a passport agency or center, you must be traveling internationally in the next 14 calendar days, or need a foreign visa in the next 28 calendar days.|
|You are in the United States and are traveling in more than 3-5 weeks||Make an appointment (if required) to apply at a passport acceptance facility to replace your passport.|

If you do not report your passport lost in the mail within 90 days from the date it was issued, you must apply again and pay all applicable fees.
No. No one can travel internationally using only a U.S. passport number. Travelers must present an original, physical version of a U.S. passport book or U.S. passport card upon entering a foreign country and when returning to the United States from a foreign country.
The U.S. passport book and passport card are highly secure documents with numerous security features designed to prevent successful counterfeiting.
We do not recommend reporting your U.S. passport lost or stolen if your passport number was compromised. You should only report your U.S. passport lost or stolen if the original, physical version of the passport book or passport card has been lost or stolen. Once you report a U.S. passport lost or stolen, it is invalid and cannot be used for international travel.
You can return the passport of a deceased relative for cancelation. We can return the passport after it is canceled.

No. If you have already reported your passport lost or stolen, the passport is no longer valid and must not be used for travel. If you attempt to use your reported lost or stolen U.S. passport, you may encounter issues when traveling abroad.
After reporting your passport lost or stolen, you must apply for a new passport in person using Form DS-11.
