How do I replace a lost or stolen passport while in Costa Rica?

You will need to come to the American Citizen Services Unit of the U.S. Embassy, Monday 8:00 AM-11:30 AM and 1:00 PM-3:00 PM or Tuesday-Friday: 8:00 AM-11:30 AM except during U.S. and Costa Rican Holidays, and fill out a form DS-64, Statement Regarding Lost or Stolen Passport. At that time you can fill out an application for a new passport. Please bring the police report, if you have one.  You will also need to bring 2 passport-sized photos and a fee of $85 (age 16 and over) or $70 (15 and younger) to replace your lost or stolen passport.

What kind of photos do I need for my passport?

You will need 2 recent, identical passport-sized (5x5 cm) photographs which must:

- Measure 2 x 2 inches (5 x 5 cm) (vending machine photos are generally not acceptable)
- Be identical
- Have been taken within the past 6 months, showing current appearance
- Be color or black and white
- Be full face, front view with a plain white or off-white background
- Have an image measuring between 1 inch and 1 3/8 inches from the bottom of the chin to the top of the head
- Be taken in normal street attire (uniforms should not be worn in photos except religious attire that is worn daily)
- Be taken without a hat or headgear that obscures the hair or hairline
- Note: If you normally wear prescription glasses, a hearing device, wig or similar articles, they should be worn for your picture; dark glasses or non-prescription glasses with tinted lenses are not acceptable unless you need them for medical reasons. (A medical certificate may be required.)

A photographer able to take appropriate photographs is available at the U.S. Embassy for a nominal fee (currently 1000 colones).
