Lost or Stolen Passports
If you have lost your passport or your passport has been stolen you will need to report this to the authority that issued this passport (e.g. if your passport was issued in Berlin you will have to report the lost/stolen passport to the passport office in Berlin). Please only send the application form to the Embassy in London if your lost/stolen passport was issued in London.
