What to do if you’ve lost your passport

Are you in Amsterdam and have you lost your passport? If you have been robbed, report this to the Police. If it’s been lost then check the Lost and Found office first. If it’s not there, then contact the consulate of your country.

Lost and Found

If you’ve lost your ID or passport your first step is to check if it has been dropped off at the Lost and Found office. The office is centrally located by the Leidseplein and is open Monday to Friday between 09:00 and 16:00. Please note that, in the case of a robbery, you need to report this at a Police Station first.
