Reporting Loss of Singapore Passport



Overview

A lost passport must be reported immediately to the Passports Unit Citizen Services Centre, Immigration and Checkpoints Authority or to the nearest Singapore overseas mission abroad.

Passports reported lost cannot be used even if recovered subsequently. If you recover the lost passport after a new one has been issued to you, you must surrender the recovered passport to ICA for cancellation within 14 days. Failure to surrender a recovered passport is an offence punishable by a fine not exceeding S$1,000 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding 6 months or both.
