Report a lost or stolen passport
If your passport is lost or stolen, either in the UK or abroad, you should report it as soon as possible here then you can apply for a replacement.
What if I lose my passport abroad?
If you need to travel urgently or within six weeks you can apply for an emergency travel document. If you do not need to travel urgently or within six weeks then you can apply for a passport from overseas.
What if my passport is stolen?
Stolen passports should also be reported to the police. You can report a stolen passport by telephoning 101 in the UK. Stolen passports abroad should also be reported to the local police and ask for a written police report. You may need to provide this to the British Embassy when applying for a new passport or to your travel insurer if you wish to claim for the expense involved in changing your travel plans.
