Losing your passport, especially when a trip is on the horizon, can be a nerve-wracking experience. But fear not, travelers! Passport Rush is here to guide you through the streamlined process of securing a replacement, ensuring you can embark on your journey with minimal delay.
Step 1: Report the Loss Immediately
Your first step should always be to report the lost passport to prevent fraudulent use. You can report it online through the U.S. Department of State’s website or by calling them directly. Additionally, if you’re abroad, contact the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate.
Step 2: Gather Necessary Documentation
To replace your lost passport, you’ll need to compile a few essential documents:
- Form DS-64: Statement Regarding a Lost or Stolen Passport
- Form DS-11: Application for a U.S. Passport
- Proof of identity (e.g. Driver’s license, Real ID)
- Proof of U.S. citizenship (such as a birth certificate)
- A passport photo adhering to U.S. Department of State guidelines
Step 3: Expedite with PassportRush
While you can submit through the post office for routine processing, time is often of the essence when replacing a lost passport, especially if you have imminent travel plans.
