How do I notify you that I have found my passport?

by Robert
(El Paso,Tx USA)

Question: I recently reported my passport lost but I found it today. I misplaced it when I took it to the Social Security Office for proof of ID. What do I need to do to let you know that it indeed is in my possession? Thank you.


Answer: Passports reported lost or stolen by telephone or by submitting Form DS-64 are invalidated and can no longer be used for travel.

If you reported the lost passport to the State Department, then will have to apply for a new passport. This requires you complete Form DS-11 and submit it, along with other required documents, at a passport acceptance facility.
