Steps for Replacing a Lost or Stolen Passport

Step 1: Contact the American Citizens Services Section

Contact ACS as quickly as possible to report the loss in order to minimize the opportunity for someone else to use your passport for illicit purposes at:

Tel: (03) 2168-5000
Email: KLACS@state.gov

Step 2: Report the Theft or Loss to the Royal Malaysia Police

While the U.S. Embassy does not require a police report to replace a lost or stolen passport, you should report the theft or loss to the Royal Malaysia Police.  The police report will assist you with replacing your Malaysian visa and/or obtaining permission from the Malaysian authorities to depart the country.

Step 3: Schedule an Appointment

Appointments are required for all passport services.  To make or cancel an appointment, please visit Make an Appointment.  Please schedule a different appointment for each person replacing their passport.

Step 4: Complete Passport Application Form DS-11 Using our Passport Application System

Do not sign Form DS-11 until requested to do so by the Consular Officer.

Step 5: Complete Form DS-64

Form DS-64 is a statement regarding a lost or stolen passport.  If you use our Passport Application System, a DS-64 will be automatically generated for you, or you may download the DS-64 form.
