Lost Passport Replacement in Boston

If you’re going to lose your passport, Boston is one of the better cities in which to do it. That’s because Boston has several different options available for getting your lost passport replaced in the required timeframe. Let’s take a look at the different lost passport replacement procedures and the advantages and disadvantages of each.

 

Lost Passport Replacement at an Acceptance Facility

 

The most common method of replacing a lost passport is to apply in person at a passport acceptance facility. There are currently 7 of these scattered throughout Boston, mainly in post offices. You can find the nearest one here.

 

To get a new passport, you’ll need the following documents:

 

Proof of identity, such as your driver’s license or other government-issued photo ID. You’ll need both the original and a clear photocopy.

Proof of citizenship, such as your birth certificate, naturalization certificate or certificate of citizenship.

Form DS-64: Statement Regarding a Lost or Stolen Passport

Passport Application Form DS-11

2 passport photos

Money to pay passport fees.

 

Once you’ve applied to replace your lost passport, you can expect to wait 6 weeks for the new passport to arrive in the mail if you’ve selected normal processing, and 3 weeks if you’ve selected expedited processing.

 

Lost Passport Replacement at the Boston Passport Agency

 

If you don’t have 3 weeks to wait, don’t worry! Boston is one of 21 cities in the US that is home to regional passport agency office.

This office can issue a passport within 24 hours if you have a travel emergency. In addition to the documents listed above, you’ll also need to bring a copy of your itinerary to prove that you intend to leave the country within the next 2 weeks.

 

The Boston Passport Agency is located at 10 Causeway Street in Suite 247. To make an appointment, call 1-877-487-2778.

How to Get Your US Passport Renewal In A Hurry

Not enough time to go through the standard US passport renewal process? If you have tickets to leave the country in the next 14 days and just found out that your passport is expired, you have a couple of different options.

 

The first is to make an appointment at the nearest Regional Passport Agency office. These are special passport offices that are capable of issuing passports within 24 hours to US citizens with emergency travel needs. There are currently 21 of these offices scattered throughout the US, so depending on where you live, getting to the closest one may require some traveling in and of itself. If you decide to go this route, here’s what you need to do:

 

Call 1-877-487-2778 to make an appointment.

Do not attempt to renew by mail, even if you are eligible to do so! Instead, bring your US passport renewal application, your current passport, legal documentation to support any name change and 2 passport photos with you to the appointment.

Research to ensure that you are bringing all of the documents you need. See Passport Renewal: A Step by Step Guide for details.

Don’t be late to your appointment. The tide waits for no man-and neither do Regional Passport Agency offices! You won’t be allowed in if you arrive more than 15 minutes after the appointment time.

 

The second option is to hire a private passport expediting company to handle the appointment for you.

This is an especially good option for those who don’t live near a Regional Passport Agency office or who work during the day when passport agency offices are open and can’t get time off work to go. An expeditor will deliver your application to the Department of State for fast processing without the hassle of making an appointment and waiting in line.

 

If you choose this option, research the company first to make sure they are reputable. Then, follow the instructions they give you very carefully to ensure that you get your passport in the time period promised.
