It is nerve-wracking to lose a passport. However, such situations require you to stay calm and analyze the situation rationally.

You must promptly report the loss of your passport to the relevant authorities when you are sure about the loss. Furthermore, file a report at the local police station if your passport is lost in the UK. Additionally, you are advised to inform your country’s embassy or consulate in the UK regarding the loss of your passport.

However, we assure you that losing a passport doesn’t nullify the chances of your visa application. It would be best to start collecting alternative documents to validate your identity and travel history, including previous visa copies, travel routes, and other official documents.

A police report officially validates the loss of your passport, which is significant for your visa application. You must acquire a copy of the police report and secure it for future reference.

Besides taking these steps, acquiring a new passport from your country’s embassy or consulate is vital, as it will be required to pursue your UK visa application.

After receiving a new passport and having the alternative documentation in place, you are all set to inform the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) regarding the loss of your old passport and the issuance of a new passport.

You can still submit your visa application if your visa is about to expire, and you do not have a valid passport. However, you must inform the Home Office about the passport loss or theft.

You should include all the necessary supplementary documents to substantiate your case when submitting your visa application. You must include copies of your lost passport, your new passport (if you’ve got it), a copy of the police report, and any other relevant documents to validate your travel history.


Finally, be prepared for any additional information requests by the UKVI or any further checks conducted due to your passport loss. You should immediately furnish any requested document and cooperate with their inquiries.
