Lost Thai Passport

In case your passport is lost, it is essential to report it to the local police. Furthermore, you need to bring the police report to the consular section of the embassy in person. Besides if the report is in the local language, it must be translated into English and stamped to certify the translation at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Greece or Malta.

Besides, when applying for a new passport, you must submit evidence other than the police report, including a copy of the lost passport, ID card, house registration, and marriage certificate (if applicable). However, the embassy staff has the discretion to issue a new passport or a document that will be used to travel back to Thailand only (Certificate of Identity). They may also request additional documents not specified in the guide to consider issuing a passport or travel document (CI) to you. See also the Thai Embassy in Portugal and Thai Embassy in Beijing as well on here.

It is important to note that there is no fee for the embassy in issuing temporary travel documents. However, these documents are only valid for 1 month and cannot be used to travel to third countries. They are only issued in lieu of a passport on the way back to Thailand and cannot be used in lieu of a passport. Therefore, you will need to apply for a new passport after returning to Thailand.
