Loss of Passport

Back to top

If your passport is lost, you should report it immediately. Refer to ‘Procedure’ section below for details.

Passports reported lost cannot be used, even if later recovered. If you recover your passport after submitting the loss report, you must surrender it to ICA within 14 days, as required under the law (Passports Act 2007). The passport cannot be used after it has been reported as lost. Failure to surrender a recovered passport is an offence. You could face a fine/and or imprisonment.

Note: Under the Passports Act (Chapter 220), you must report a lost passport within 14 days of losing it. We recommend you report it immediately.
