Report a Lost or Stolen Passport

The United States Department of State encourages you to report the loss or theft of your United States passport to local authorities and to obtain a police report.

We also encourage you to report the loss or theft of your United States passport immediately using the State Department’s online tool.  Keep in mind that if you report your passport as lost or stolen online and subsequently recover that passport, you will not be able to use it as it will be electronically cancelled.

You can also report your United States passport as lost or stolen using a form DS-64 when you apply for a replacement passport.
