Get an emergency travel document
If your passport has been lost or stolen, you will need to obtain a police report before applying for an emergency travel document. Once you have your emergency travel document you will need to replace your entry stamp with Immigration Authorities. This is usually a quick process and can only be done at the City.
If the person needing the emergency travel document is under 16, a parent or guardian should apply on their behalf.
If you are due to travel in the next 24 hours, contact us as soon as possible.
If you are travelling in more than 3 weeks, check if you can get a new or replacement passport in time to travel.
