If the loss/theft occurred after office hours or on the weekend in the jurisdiction of Hong Kong or Macao, please call (852) 2847-7575 and an Operations Officer at the Emergency Services Division in Ottawa will assist you. This officer is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

For each lost/stolen passport, you must report the matter to the nearest police station and obtain a detailed police report. You will be required to submit the original police report in support of your application.
