Since this is a straightforward 'US passport lost abroad question', this is what you should do, the easiest method: What should a U.S. citizen do if his/her passport is lost/stolen abroad? You will have to replace the passport before returning to the United States. Contact the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate for assistance. Contact information ...

You will need a travel document to board your flight back to Pakistan. Call the nearest Pakistani embassy or consulate in the USA immediately. They can help you get a new passport or emergency travel document.

In theory, it's against Ryanair policy to let anyone enter the plane without a valid identifying document. In practice, you have to try! Do not call their telephone infoline or anything like that, because they will tell you it's not possible. Be sure to contact Ryanair at the airport as early as possible during your flight day. Take the police report with ...

You definitively need your passport or an adequate emergency travel document. Not only will Mexico not accept your ID card or driver's license but more importantly, since about a decade already, you are required to present a passport to return when arriving by air. So, unless you want to stay in Mexico for, uh... a longer time, not taking your passport is ...

You cannot use just a green card to fly from France to the US because you cannot clear the passport control for departing passengers with the green card. For that, you'll need either a French passport (which you do not have) or a French national ID card. Even if you have both the green card and the national ID, the airline might require you to have a ...

Since this is a Q&A site, I'll answer on the original question, a lost and not-found-again passport. Report the loss or theft of the document to the local police. They will point you to the lost property office in case there was a honest finder. They will list your document as lost so it is harder to abuse. Next, report the loss or theft to your ...

According to EU rules you need either a passport or a national ID card to travel between EU countries. However, the UK does not issue national ID cards- there was a whole political issue about possibly introducing them during the Blair government which led to them eventually being rejected. As a British citizen you absolutely 100% need a passport to leave ...

I can't find anything about emergency travel documents in their Ts&Cs, but I've found this relevant exchange from Ryanair's official twitter account: Ann ‏@ann_nguyen1 16 Jul 2015 @Ryanair I only have my emergency travel document and I'm flying on Sat from Manch home to Norway. Can I still board the flight?Pls say YES Ryanair ‏@Ryanair 16 ...

I think you're out of luck for today. As Richard mentioned, your driver's license is not enhanced, so it really doesn't help you at all. The usual thing to do in this situation would be to go in person to a passport agency, where a passport can be issued the same day. Unfortunately, there are none in Alaska, and I doubt you have time to fly to another ...

No you cannot travel with your old visa If you have already reported your visa lost/stolen to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate, and then you later find your misplaced visa, then your visa will be invalid for future travel to the United States. Therefore, in that situation you must apply for a new visa at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate. SOURCE

If you haven't called the Embassy of Slovakia in Madrid yet, call them for advice. Going to get an emergency travel document from them is still probably your best option. Avanzabus.com currently sells tickets from Valencia to Madrid for €30.

The passport office has an option to receive a callback. I left my name and number and an adviser called me back a couple of hours later. The adviser explained that the quickest it is possible to replace a lost or stolen passport is 7 days. The 1 day service is only available for replacements of expired or nearly expired passports that are still in your ...

No country has a diplomatic presence in every other country; in some cases politics prevents it, but in other cases it is simply impractical. Your home country will take care of its citizens' needs in the destination country in some fashion, however: Through another country's mission to the destination country, by agreement Through a mission of your home ...

There are two issues here: Will the Canadians let you board an international flight without a passport or NEXUS card. The answer here is pretty definitely no. The airline company could get fined severely for doing this, so a gate agent is not likely to let your son through -- unlike for domestic flights where they might take pity on a kid. Will USA ...

I'm not sure it is relevant (and the case is closed anyways) but some countries (checked for UK, Poland and Germany) allow you to get a temporary passport not only from an embassy, but also from a consulate, which are usually located in other major cities besides the capital.

She should report the theft to the police and her embassy. The embassy should provide emergency travel documents fairly quickly. Money can be sent via services like Western Union, often with new passwords instead of a photo id. (Take care how you transmit the password. And I'm not endorsing that particular provider; I used it for a similar purpose a decade ...

As a US citizen you cannot be denied entry to the United States. Therefore the fastest way of getting back home is to simply present yourself at a land crossing, where CBP officials will be forced to accommodate your request to enter the country, regardless of whether or not you have your passport. Having a scanned copy of your birth certificate and passport ...

So, this is what the concerned person told me: Unfortunately his train was stopped at Brig, whereby he was kicked off. The Swiss spent about 2.5 hours interrogating and fingerprinting him. In the end, he was issued an emergency identity certificate confirming his status, as well as an onward ticket to Paris via Lausanne. On the way back from Paris to ...

Unfortunately, no. From the State Department: If you are a foreign citizen temporarily in the United States, and you lose your U.S. visa, you can remain for the duration of your authorized stay, as shown on your admission stamp or paper Form I-94, Arrival/Departure Record. So at least you can stay, get a new passport, and still depart on that new ...

This answer assumes you are not in any of the three countries mentioned. US: To replace a visa from outside the USA, you must apply in person at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate abroad. When applying for the replacement of a visa, you will need to provide a written account documenting the loss of your passport and visa. Include a copy of the police report. https:...

Is it possible to replace my lost US visa in new passport in USA? NO, unfortunately you will not be able to replace a new US visa in USA.

The simple fact is: you're not getting in without a visa, least of all by air. You need to visit a US embassy or consulate in Mexico and obtain a new visa in your current passport, bringing your I-20 and visa copy and explaining the situation.

You will need either a valid passport or valid carte d'identité (CNI) to exit France. To enter the US, the Green card is enough, as stated in Timatic, the database used by airlines: Passport Exemptions: - Passengers with a Permanent Resident/Resident Alien Card (Form I-551). If you have a CNI, and end up using that and the Green card, you should ...

Edited: added details about the Interpol SLTD database and what they say about using a passport declared lost, and about emergency passports. The form used to declare the loss of an identity card or passport (Cerfa 14011*02) has this big red box at the top: Translation: Any declaration of loss or theft renders the ID definitively invalid. If you ...

You can certainly do this, but you may have trouble entering the UK at the end of your trip, because you will either have to lie about your intentions in the UK, which is a terrible idea, or convince them through other means that you are an Irish citizen and therefore entitled to enter and reside in the UK. The specific law that allows you to enter as an ...

Can I still apply with previous lost passport? Yes, you can still apply with new passport . Losing a passport with valid or used visas is obviously a set back for a visa applicant. There is absolutely nothing you can do about it. Certain Schengen Embassies/Consulates require to attach lost passports police report which is very common in Asian countries. ...
