Singaporeans who have lost their passports while travelling in Korea should first report the loss to a neighbourhood police post. Please request a copy of the Loss Property Report.
Thereafter, you may choose to either:
Upon confirmation of your citizenship from the Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA), a Document of Identity (DOI) can be issued to you to return to Singapore only.
You will be required to appear in person at the Singapore Embassy to collect the DOI during office hours on weekdays.
Upon your return to Singapore, you will need to surrender the DOI and apply for a new passport at ICA.
For Singapore citizens who are working or studying in the country, the Embassy can assist you in your application for a replacement passport.
Please see Passport Application and Renewal for more information.
If you manage to recover your lost passport, please inform the Embassy immediately.

Please note that if your passport is lost or damaged, you are not allowed to apply for a new passport online. You must apply for a new passport in person at the Embassy.
