Lost or Stolen Passports

If you lose your passport in Ukraine, you can replace your passport at the Consular Section in Kyiv by making an appointment using our online appointment system.

If you seek to be accompanied by a third party, please see more information here.

If you travel in an emergency, you may be eligible for an emergency limited-validity passport. Please email kyivacs@state.gov a request for emergency appointment.  In either case, you should submit your application for a replacement passport as soon as possible after the loss or theft is discovered.

Processing Time

An application for a full-validity (ten years for adults; five years for children under age of 16) passport will be sent to the United States for printing with a secure, photo-digitized image of the bearer. You should allow 3 weeks for your application to be processed. When your new passport is ready, you will need to come back to the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy to pick it up.

In cases where the applicant must travel urgently or has an immediate need for a passport, the Embassy or Consulate can issue an emergency limited-validity passport. An emergency U.S. passport has a shorter validity than a full-validity passport. NOTE: Some countries do not accept limited validity emergency passports. Other countries’ passport requirement information is available at www.travel.state.gov.
