Exclamation retrieve lost immigration documents

I recently lost my Passport, AP and the I-94 documents - both mine and my wife's.

What is the process for retrieving I-94 and AP. The AP I lost expired (but was used for my last entry into US) and I have a later approved copy of the AP.

Really appreciate your thoughts in this regard!

You have to apply for a duplicate I-94 at USCIS. Please see the below links. As far as the lost AP goes, since it is expired, just report it as lost to the USCIS (call their customer service).

Also, if you have not done so already, report the loss of the passports to the nearest police station and your Embassy/Consulate immediately to prevent unauthorised use of those passports.

Good luck.

Default Thanks!

Thank you for the information.

I filed a report with the local police today. They will have a copy of the report ready for me in two days.

Looks like I will have to file in person at the nearest Indian consulate for a new passport.

I will apply for the replacement I-94 once I have a copy of the police report.

If I remember right, my friend applied via mail after submitting notarized docs which stated that they were copies of the original, at the SFO consulate, a few months ago. But, if your jurustiction is different, different Indian consulates may have different rules. Call them to see if you can apply via mail, before making travel arrangements.
