To prevent misuse or identity theft, the loss or theft abroad of a U.S. passport should be reported immediately to the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate. U.S. citizens may also report that directly to the Department of State’s Passport Office. To replace a lost or stolen passport, U.S. citizens must appear in person in the Consular Section and present the following:
- Minor’s original birth certificate or original Consular Report of Birth Abroad.
- Proof of citizenship (U.S. birth certificate, naturalization certificate, certificate of citizenship or Consular Report of Birth Abroad).
- Proof of identity (a U.S. government-issued or a foreign photo ID).
- Both parents’ photo IDs or one parent’s ID along with signed and notarized DS-3053 (PDF 421KB), document showing sole custody.
- A police document certifying that the passport loss/theft has been reported to the Bulgarian police authorities.
- One photograph 5 cm x 5 cm (not older than six months).
- A completed but not signed DS-11 Form.
- A completed and signed DS-64 Form.
You may pay cash in U.S. dollars or Bulgarian leva or by credit card. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and Diners. Personal checks are not accepted.
Please Note: The Application Fee is a non-refundable processing fee and is retained by the Department of State whether or not the passport is issued.
It is helpful to keep a photocopy of the data page of your passport in a safe place.
