Loss/Theft of Passport
If your passport is lost or stolen, contact the Embassy or Consulate as soon as possible. You must also go to the nearest Police Station and make a report. Keep a copy of your statement to the police as you will have to submit it with your application for a new passport.
If your passport is lost or stolen a police report is accepted by some airlines in lieu of a passport, but always check with your airline before going to the airport. If your airline will not accept the police statement, the Embassy in Moscow can issue you with an Emergency Travel Certificate.
