Lost/Stolen Passport Application

A U.S. citizen may not normally bear more than one valid or potentially valid U.S. passport book and one valid passport card at a time. It therefore is necessary to submit a statement with an application for a new U.S. passport when a previously issued valid or potentially valid U.S. passport cannot be presented. Your statement must detail why the previous U.S. passport cannot be presented. The information you provide on the DS-64, Statement Regarding a Lost or Stolen Passport, will be placed into our Consular Lost or Stolen Passport System. This system is designed to prevent the misuse of your lost or stolen U.S. passport. Anyone using the passport reported on the DS-64, including yourself, may be detained upon entry into the United States. Should you locate the passport reported lost or stolen at a later time, you should report it as found and submit it for cancellation. It has been invalidated. You may not use that passport for travel.

If you are applying for a new passport, please submit this form with the new passport application to any designated acceptance facility, passport agency, or U.S. consular official. 

If you are not currently applying for a new passport, send this form or a recovered lost or stolen passport to the following address:

U.S. Department of State

Consular Lost/Stolen Passport Section
1111 19th Street, NW, Suite 500

(Please do not attempt to use this address for any passport related service other than that described above.)
