Lost Passport, what can I do?

I've lost my passport and I need an urgent replacement.

Replacing a lost or stolen passport is more complex than a renewal. Our managed service will avoid the chance of rejection and delays.

  • A Lost Passport should be reported immediately irrespective of arranging a replacement.
  • We will provide all the required documents for replacing your lost passport free of charge and guide you through the process of completion.
  • In most cases we can assist in replacing a Lost Passport quickly and without the need for an attendance or interview by the passport holder.
  • In certain circumstances where travel has been booked or the passport holder needs to travel urgently we may achieve emergency replacement subject to compliance and HMPO approval.
  • Additional supporting information is required when replacing a Lost Passport and our staff will assist and manage your application.
  • We will require new passport photographs that meet the current required standard. A photo guide will be forwarded to you and our staff will assist and check your photographs before submission.
  • 1 photograph will need to be signed by a third party (another person) to verify the identity of the passport holder or applicant.
  • This other person also needs to countersign the application form.
  • If you discover your passport is lost or mislaid you should not make arrangements to travel outside the UK without first seeking advice.

As with all our services - our passport and visa agents will provide guidance and assistance with all the above and answer any questions you may have.
