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.
