Replacement Report of Birth Abroad

The approved Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a Citizen of the United States of America is evidence that your child acquired United States citizenship at birth. This form is a basic citizenship document that can also serve as a birth certificate when enrolling your child in U.S. schools; some U.S. states may also require it for driver’s license issuances, so it is important to safeguard this document as you would a U.S. state-issued birth certificate. The applications, when processing is completed, are forwarded to Passport Services at the Department of State in Washington, D.C. for permanent filing storage; therefore, Passport Services is the only office which may issue a replacement.

In order to obtain a replacement document for a lost/stolen or mutilated Consular Report of Birth Abroad, you will need to contact Passport Services at the U.S. Department of State. Instructions are available by clicking here.
