Applications for lost or stolen passports must be accompanied by the original police report and the consulate will also ask for proof of Brazilian citizenship. This can be in the form of a marriage or birth certificate, a document from the military or an official Brazilian ID.

Applying for a replacement for a lost or damaged passport can only be done at the Consulate General of Brazil as the applicant will be asked to sign a document stating how the document was lost or damaged. The statement is a declaration of truth to be signed in front of the consular authority specific to the Consulate General.

If applying in person, 10 working days should be expected for the new passport to be ready; if applying by mail, receipt of the official document should be expected in 30 working days.
