Replacing a Lost or Stolen Passport

To apply for an emergency passport, you will need to appear in person at U.S. Embassy Athens Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. except on the last Wednesday of the month and on holidays

  • Completed DS-11  Passport Application (Note that your social security number is a required field.  We cannot issue a passport without it.)
  • Completed DS-64 Report of Lost or Stolen Passport
  • $145, either in U.S. dollars or 139 in Euros.  Credit cards are accepted until 1 p.m.
  • Passport photo.  A photo booth is available in our waiting area.  The cost for two photographs is 10 Euros.  Please bring the exact amount in the Euros only as the photo booth does not give change.  It may be difficult for an infant or minor child to be photographed in the booth.  We advise that your bring their required photos with you.  Several shops near the Embassy offer photos services.
  • Photo ID, such as a driver’s license, if available.  If you don’t have an ID, consular staff will be able to confirm your citizenship and identity through a passport database.
  • A police report for your lost passport is not required, but we highly encourage you to obtain one because it may help while you are in Greece without a valid travel document.  Your insurance company may also request a police report if you wish to file a claim for stolen items.

Blank forms are available at the Embassy, but using the form filler will save you time.  Fill out and print the forms and bring them with you, but don’t sign them.

The more prepared you are, the faster your emergency passport issuance will be.  If you plan to fly the same day, we recommend that you schedule your departure for late afternoon or later so that you do not miss your flight.
