Recently my girlfriend's Indian passport got stolen. It contained a very important J1 US visa. We are slightly panicky since the application took three months to process and the travel day is 20th Jan 2018. She is living in Austria and can get a temporary passport issued within an hour from the Indian consulate.
As per my understanding of this things, this will void her previous passport, correct?
But then what happens to the visa? Can it be simply reissued on the temporary passport after producing the FIR?
Unfortunately, the state.gov website does not provide any clear direction as to how existing visas can be reissued in case of theft or loss.
It would be helpful if someone can provide some additional information. Thanks!
