Step 1
Go to the nearest Police Station and get a Police Report that your Passport has been lost.
Documents required:
1. Copy of Passport page with photo & data

 

Step 2
Go to the Embassy of your Country and obtain a new Passport as well as a letter issued by the Embassy explaining the reason for issuing the new Passport.
Documents required:
1. Copy of Passport page with photo & data.
2. The original of the Police Report

 

Step 3
Go to the Thai Immigration Bureau and apply for a new visa stamp in the new Passport.
Documents required:
1. Application form
2. The New Passport and copy of page with photo & data.
3. Copy of Police Report.
4. Letter from the Embassy explaining the reason for issuing the new Passport

 

By Law foreigners are obliged to always carry with them their original current Passport during their stay in Thailand. Apart from the increased risk of losing the Passport, this is obviously not practical. Hence, it is strongly recommended to always carry a copy of your current Passport pages with the Data & Photo as well as the Thai visa currently valid with expiration date. For a minor fee you can go to a photo shop to have those 2 pages copied and reduced to the size of a normal business card and laminated for protection.
