According to regulations, foreigners in China who lose their passports should apply for a passport report certificate which is valid for a month.
As soon as you realize that your passport is missing , the first step is to go to the nearest local police station and make an official report for the lost passport . The local police station will issue you with a Report Receipt.
After you get the report receipt from your local police station , head to the Exit & Entry Administration office ( Located in Binhu ) and apply for a loss certificate .Make sure to take these documents with you :
- Original and copy of the police “Receipt of Report”.
- A copy of the lost passport or other identity proofs (If you can’t find a copy of your passport )
- 2 recent front bareheaded full-faced photos with 2-inches.
- Registration form of temporary residence
- Photocopy of your Foreigner’s Residence Permit, if you are a Foreigner’s Residence Permit holder;
At the bureau , you will fill a report form with clear and accurate personal information , which you will include in your application file.
At the same time, you should apply to your embassy or consulate for a new passport . For those who are unable to apply for a new passport in China and need to leave the country urgently, they can apply to the Exit-Entry Administration Department for an “Entry-Exit Permit .”
