How to Report a Lost or Stolen U.S. Passport
Until now, customers have had to either call the National Passport Information Center or submit a paper form to Passport Services (either separately through the mail or in conjunction with a new passport application) to report the loss or theft of their passport.
Because of this tedious process, most passport bearers normally waited until they applied for replacement passports to report their previous ones lost or stolen.
With a new convenient online reporting feature created by the U.S. State Department, customers will be more likely to report the loss or theft of a passport as soon as it is noticed. The Online Lost or Stolen Passport Tool can be found on the Lost or Stolen Passports information page at Travel.State.Gov.
