Emergency Passport in the U.S.

If you lost your passport and you need to travel very urgently, you may apply for a temporary emergency passport.

A temporary passport issued by an embassy/consulate has limited validity and is non-machine readable. It is issued in an A4-size format, and is only valid for a single trip. Under certain circumstances the passport may be issued for a round trip. Your e-ticket or booking reference must be presented when you apply for the passport.

Certain countries do not accept a Swedish temporary passport so make sure to contact your travel destination's embassy/consulate to find out. Some countries also require that a passport has a certain validity for entry. Maximum validity for a temporary passport is 7 months.
