REPLACING PASSPORTS LOST IN 2023 HAWAII WILDFIRES  

Have you lost your passport due to the 2023 Hawaii Wildfires? You can replace your lost passport free of charge through the Disaster Recovery Reform Act of 2018:

  1. Fill out the Replacement Passport Form (DS-5504) and include a recent passport photo.
  2. Complete the Lost/Stolen Passport Form (DS-64). Make sure you mention the name of the disaster (“Hawaii Wildfires”), provide the address where the loss occurred, and specify the approximate date of the loss and certify that the replacement passport fees won’t be covered by other sources like a homeowner’s insurance policy.
  3. If you require expedited service, you can include an optional fee of $60.

If you need an urgent replacement, you can visit the Honolulu Passport Agency in person to fast-track your passport replacement process.
