The U.S. Embassy accepts applications to replace passports that have been lost, stolen, or damaged.

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:

Step one – In the case of a stolen passport, go to the Portuguese tourist police and file a police report.

Step two – For passport application instructions and forms Passport Application Wizard. Complete and print your passport application. DO NOT SIGN THE APPLICATION.

Step three – Come to the U.S. Embassy in Lisbon with your application between 8:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., Monday to Friday (except American and local holidays).

Step four – ACS staff will ask you for three things:

  • Your completed passport application
  • A 2” x 2” photo. If you do not have a photo you can get one from the Embassy photo booth for 5€ each (cash only/exact amount required)
  • Payment for the $145 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.
