My Nepalese friend has lost his passport, visa, and his citizen card in Malaysia. His flight is in a week, and if he goes to police, they want his permit card, and he doesn't have it. What should he do in this situation?
In general, when a traveller loses their passport they should contact a consulate or embassy of the country where they are a citizen. The consulate may be able to quickly issue an emergency passport or other travel document, that will allow the holder to travel and depart the country they are in. However, the traveller should definitely seek to replace their passport as soon as possible, as international travel is difficult without one.
- Nepali nationals who are visiting Malaysia/Indonesia/Philippines on a tourist visa may contact the embassy in case of loss of passport with police report, and a attested copy of the lost passport or attested copy of Nepali citizenship certificate along with the proof of purpose of the visit to the respective countries.
- Upon review, the embassy may issue passport or travel document.
