My passport was stolen in December 2020. There is no US Embassy in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The nearest embassy is in the Bahamas. There is a US Consulate, but it has been closed since 2019. But the Bahamas is a different country, and I cannot travel to the Bahamas. The embassy in the Bahamas told me to take the police report, copy of my stolen passport and go to the airport, and the airline would call (someone) to get permission to let me on the plane. That did not work. American Airlines told me that Customs and Border Protection would not allow me to board. I called the CBP, and they referred me to the State Dept, who referred me to TSA. No one will help. Any suggestions? I have been in the Turks and Caicos for seven months, waiting for the Consulate to reopen. I must get home.
