If you lost your passport or you suspect your passport was stolen, you can, and should, replace your passport quickly.

Although many peoples first instinct is to assume a missing passport may have been stolen, often the passport has been misplaced and usually turns up, unfortunately not usually in time for that upcoming trip. Replacing a lost passport is similar to applying for a new passport with the addition of a form used to explain the circumstance behind the loss or theft of the passport. The form, called passport application form DS-64, asks questions about the passport itself such as number and expiration date (which most people do not know and leave blank) and then follows up with questions about the last time the passport was seen and what the applicant has done to try to recover the passport.
