INFORMATION – US PASSPORT ISSUED OVERSEAS
U.S. Embassies and Consulates all over the world accept applications to replace passports that have been lost, stolen, or mutilated (damaged). A U.S. passport is a valuable document, not just for you the rightful bearer. Therefore always report the loss or theft of a U.S. passport to the local police authorities to avoid identity theft!
The State Department remains committed to ensuring that American citizens receive the most secure documents in a timely manner.
In order to replace the passport, it will be necessary for you to appear personally at the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate. You should submit your application for a replacement passport as soon as possible after the loss or theft is discovered.
Replacement passports can be issued within two weeks. In cases where the applicant must travel urgently, the Embassy/Consulate can issue an ‘emergency passport’ with limited validity. This passport is valid for all travel and identifies you as a U.S. citizen. It can not be extended. Passport holders are required to exchange their limited validity passports for a full-validity photo-digitized passport upon completion of their travel at an embassy/consulate overseas or at a Passport Agency in the United States.
U.S. Embassy or Consulate where your passport is issued will give you a letter with instructions on how to exchange your limited validity passport. You should keep this letter and return it with your new application.
If you reside in the United States, upon returning to the United States apply and exchange your limited validity passport with a full validity passports.
