Passport report for theft Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

The theft of a passport must be reported to the competent authority.

There is no obligation to apply for a new passport. If a passport is still required, a new passport must be requested. It is not possible to issue a replacement document.

Documents may be required. Please contact the appropriate body.


The passport cannot be taken immediately after the application has been submitted, as it is manufactured at the Bundesdruckerei in Berlin. If the passport is required earlier, an express passport can be requested.
