DS-64 Lost or Stolen Passport Replacement Application Form
What is the DS-64 Application for Lost or Stolen Passport? For whatever the reason is for losing a passport, the passport must be replaced and the process must begin. Before applying for a new passport, the old one must be reported stolen or lost. The first step is to fill out Form DS-64.
Form DS-64 will provide all the necessary information to the State’s Department to stop anyone from using the lost passport. In addition to Form DS-64, Form DS-11 must be completed as well. Download both forms and fill them out using a black ink pen.
Once you submit your DS-64 application, your current passport is invalidated and reported worldwide. Therefore, if you find your current passport that you have previously reported as being lost or stolen it will be invalid and can no longer be used for travel purposes.

Question: I had a passport issued in August or Sept 2001. It was later lost in a hurricane flooding in 2005. I never needed to use one since then, but want to renew. The rules say if it’s been 15 years, I don’t apply for a lost one, but for a NEW one. DO I still need to use form DS-64 in my application for a new one?
Answer: Yes! It is recommended that you report the passport as lost or stolen using the DS-64 Application. You would need to apply for a new passport using the DS-11 application form.

Question: I misplaced my passport and will be requesting a new one, but I have also changed my last name since misplacing the passport. Can the replacement have my new name on it? I gather I will need the DS-11 and DS-64 form. Is there another form I need to change my name if I have already legally changed it with Social Security?
