Getting a Replacement Passport: What You Should Know

Can I Travel with a Lost Passport?

The short answer is no.  You need a valid passport if you plan to travel internationally and will be asked to produce one at the airport.  Therefore, it is best to order a replacement. 

I already reported it lost to Passport office and police, do I need to complete the Lost Passport form (DS-64) again?

Yes, you will need to complete the form again.

Should I Report a Lost or Stolen Passport?

You may want to report that your passport has been lost or stolen to prevent identity theft.  The Department of State has further information on how you can do this. 

Can I submit photocopy of my passport that I lost?

No, this is not sufficient enough.  You will need to follow all requirements.
