Lost Passports

There are two options when looking to replace a lost or missing passport depending on how urgently you need to travel.

Regular Passport
Processing time for a regular passport is 2 weeks. You can only apply for a regular passport at the Embassy of Sweden in Washington DC or the Consulate General in New York - by appointment only. 

You must be able to present valid photo ID in order to apply for a new regular passport. If possible, report the loss to the local police and obtain a report. Additional instructions and link to booking systems are available under Passports.

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.

In the U.S., you may apply for a temporary passport at the following consular locations:

  • Embassy in Washington DC
  • Consulate in Boston
  • Consulate in Chicago
  • Consulate in Dallas
  • Consulate in Ft. Lauderdale
  • Consulate in Houston
  • Consulate in Las Vegas
  • Consulate in Minneapolis
  • Consulate General in New York
  • Consulate in Raleigh
  • Consulate in San Diego
  • Consulate in San Francisco

Contact the embassy/consulate directly to confirm opening hours and for instructions. Contact information for each location may be found further down on this page.

No passport photos are necessary when applying in New York or in Washington DC. Other locations required two color passport photos. List of fees.
