I have lost my passport, what shall I do?

You must report the loss to the Her Majesty's Passport Office (HM Passport Office) by calling the Passport Advice line (Mon-Fri 8am - 8pm, weekends and public holidays 9am - 5.30pm) on 0300 222 0000 as soon as possible in order to help prevent future misuse of the document.

This can also be done by submitting a lost/stolen declaration form (LS01) to IPS obtained from selected Post Offices.
There is no requirement for any reference numbers if the passport has been lost. However, if the passport has been stolen and reported to police then the crime number has to be quoted on the form.

Sussex Police are no longer required to issue out Lost Property numbers or document the report of lost passports.

If a lost passport is handed in to a police station then the corner is to be cut off and immediately returned to the Passport Office. You will no longer be able to legally use a passport once it has been formally reported as lost or stolen, and subsequently cancelled. If the passport later comes into their possession, it must be returned to the Passport Office. It cannot be used for travel or identification purposes.
