Lost or stolen passport
When you receive your passport it is advisable to make a photocopy of the first page or take note of your passport details. This information should be kept somewhere safe, and away from your passport in case it is lost or stolen.
If your passport is stolen in the UK or abroad, you should immediately report the loss to the nearest police station. You also need to report a loss of your passport to the issuing authority. The Icelandic Embassy in London can help you either by issuing a new passport or a temporary travel document.
Please note that if you find your passport after it has been reported lost or stolen it can no longer be used.
