If you are visiting Portugal, your passport was lost or stolen and you need to travel imminently, our American Citizen Services (ACS) team stands ready to help you obtain an EMERGENCY U.S. PASSPORT.

Applying for an Emergency U.S. Passport is Easy:

  1. For a stolen passport, go to the Portuguese tourist police and file a police report.
  2. Complete and print your forms with the Passport Application Wizard.
  3. Make an APPOINTMENT
  4. At your appointment you will be asked for three things:
      • Your completed passport application
      • A 2” x 2” photo. No glasses.
      • Payment for the $165 fee in cash or credit card (checks, debit cards, and Multibanco cards are not accepted)

If qualified for an emergency passport, the document will be valid for up to one year.

NOTE: If you are travelling to France be advised that the 12 page US emergency passport is NOT recognized as valid for entry by French authorities.

A U.S. passport is a valuable document not only for the rightful bearer. Therefore, always report the loss or theft of a U.S. passport to the local police authorities to avoid identity theft.
