Lost, Stolen or Damaged Passports

To make sure the 12-page U.S. emergency passport is accepted for entry, you should check entry requirements of your destination: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/International-Travel-Country-Information-Pages.html.
Some countries will only permit direct transit for a destination in the United States with an emergency passport.

If your passport is lost, stolen, or damaged, a replacement passport can be issued upon presentation of proof of identity and U.S. citizenship (e.g., birth certificate, driver’s license, or previous passport).  An application for a temporary passport for immediate, emergency travel can be made at the Embassy Consular Section Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-9:30 a.m.  Please note that the Embassy cannot replace passports after hours or on weekends.
