Your passport is a vital tool in proving your identity, and your identity is one of the most valuable things you have. If your passport is lost or stolen, it is an offence not to report it as soon as you know it's lost.

If you're in Australia, call the Australian Passport Office. If you're outside Australia, contact the nearest Australian embassy or consulate overseas.

For more information on lost and stolen passports, visit the Australian Passport Office.
