What should I do if lose my passport overseas?
If you have lost your passport overseas, we advise to do the following:
- Lodge a police report with the local police immediately, and contact the nearest Singapore Overseas Mission.
- Proceed to the Singapore Embassy with the police report, two recent passport-sized photographs, documentary proof of your citizenship status and identity (e.g. Identity Card, Birth Certificate).
- For Singaporeans who are tourists, our Embassy will issue a Document of Identity (DOI) to enable you to return to Singapore after your particulars have been verified. The DOI application fee is S$15. Upon your return to Singapore, you would need to apply for a new passport at the Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA).
- For Singaporeans who are working or studying in the country, our Embassy will assist you in your application for a replacement passport.
If your passport is lost in a country with no Singapore Embassy, you may contact the nearest Singapore Overseas Mission for assistance. For more information on reporting the loss of a Singapore passport, please visit ICA’s website or write to them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
