I am an American traveling through Europe. I recently lost my passport and am planning to go to Czech Republic from Germany in about a week by car(and back a week later). Will I be asked for my passport when I cross the border by car?
Edit: I have a scanned color copy of my passport I took before I lost it, not sure if it is of any use? I am going to get a police report today and have contacted the Embassy for emergency papers but they have not responded. I am wondering what will happen to me if I am trying to cross the border, will they just turn me down and not let me cross or will it be worse?
Update: The Munich US embassy is great, I emailed them around lunch time and explained my situation and they responded almost immediately and said I should come to the Embassy next day with the forms filled out. When I arrived I was allowed to cut everyone in line because I was American and they even had a passport photo machine at the embassy. I arrived around 9:30Am and had a new replacement passport by lunch time.
