Depending on your travel plans, you will either be issued a temporary passport within the next 24 hors that’ll allow you to travel home or you will have to wait it out until a replacement passport arrives, which can take around a week.
Paying the Fees
A replacement passport costs the same as your original and is valid for up to ten years for adults and five for minors. However, there are circumstances that will allow the embassy to waive your fee. For instance, if you’re the victim of a serious crime like theft and cannot reasonably obtain money within a certain amount of time you may not have to pay.
In this case, you’ll only be issued an emergency passport. You’ll be required to replace it once you return home, at which time you’ll pay the normal fee.
So, you see, losing your passport is no reason to panic. Though stressful, it’s certainly a situation you’ll be able to handle if you keep your calm. Whatever you do, don’t try to leave the country you’re in without getting a new passport first.
