In the event that your passport is lost or stolen, first report the theft to the local police in order to get a police report. Along with the police report, you will need proof of citizenship and a photo ID, such as a driver’s license, school ID (for minors) or a Dominican ID-cédula (for dual nationals).
Emergency passports for citizens with immediate, emergency travel plans to the U.S. remain available. Emergency travel includes:
- Illness of the traveler and need for medical treatment in the U.S.
- Grave illness or death of an immediate family member in the U.S.
- For tourists only – imminent scheduled return travel to the U.S. after a passport has been lost or stolen. (Note: this option does not apply to U.S. citizens residing in the Dominican Republic)
If your travel comes under one of these categories, please come prepared to the Embassy with all the required documents Monday through Thursday at 7:00am. Note: No applications will be accepted after 11am.
Please note that planned vacation travel does not qualify as an emergency, even if your ticket has already been purchased.
If you are not eligible for an emergency passport, you may still be able to renew your passport by mail. More information available here.
If you need to renew your child’s passport, and are not sure whether your travel qualifies as an emergency, please contact us at SDOAmericans@state.gov.
