The Consular Section of the Consulate-General provides assistance to Singaporeans who lost or had their passports stolen while visiting China.


Application Procedure

If you have lost your passport while visiting China, you must lodge a report with the local Entry-Exit Administration Division of the Public Security Bureau. The local authority may take some time to investigate the case before issuing you with a Confirmation of Lost Report.

Bring along the Confirmation of Lost Report and any documentary proof of your identity to the Consulate-General.

The Consulate-General will issue you with a Document of Identity to facilitate your return to Singapore after verifying your citizenship status with the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority.

With the Document of Identity, you will need to return to the local Entry-Exit Administration Division to apply for an exit visa.  The Division may take 3-5 days to issue the exit visa.
