Recently lost my passport some time within the last week. I leave on Thursday to be reunited with my family in Italy.

I cant find it anywhere.

Please just say a quick prayer I find it.

I could use it. thanks

Edit: I prayed to God for st Michael and Anthony's help I have found my passport!

Dear St. Anthony, please come around: something is lost, and it cannot be found.

YES, I was about to recommend St. Anthony's intercession. There's a beautiful longer prayer OP can find online that asks St. Anthony for help finding something. I use it only for serious situations and so far all my requests have been granted.

"St. Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find [name the item] which has been lost. At least restore to me peace and tranquility of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss. To this favor, I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God. Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God. Amen"

Travel tip. Make a copy of your passport and keep a copy in your luggage. Keep the passport on your person. If you lose the physical passport, the copy can be used to get you to or from you location. I also keep a copy of my passport in my safe deposit box. Make sure the copy is the page of the passport with your picture and passport number. Immigration knows "shit happens" so if you have a paper copy you should be good.

Have you tried asking your wife?

Not even kidding. I can make items appear in front of me by yelling, “honey- where the heck is the— oh”

Call your congressman. Serious, they may be able to help push through an emergency approval.

U.S. passport, moving to Italy because my wife's permanent residency was denied. due to refusing the clot shot. I just noticed it gone yesterday.

my wife's permanent residency was denied. due to refusing the clot shot

I'm sorry about your passport, but at the moment I'm a lot more concerned about this information that we're denying permanent residency based on not being COVID-vaxxed. Is this an actual policy that's published somewhere?

making_upvotes [S] 4 points ago +4 / -0

Yes as of Oct 2021 it became policy

That is seriously scary. Even more scary that it's still policy.

no I have my keys sitting under a pile of clothes so I think i'll just ask the internet for help to pray... this is ridiculous

Glad it worked out! When I was 17 I went cliff diving with my buds at a local lake, just on a whim. Got home and realized I had no idea where my wallet was. Freaked out cause I just went diving in the regular clothes I was wearing, I was an idiot and carried my SS too. My mom gave a St Anthony medal and prayed with me to find it although it was most certainly at the bottom of the drink. Lol and behold I get a call a few hours later from a gay hairdresser at the mall named Byron who decided to randomly scuba dive that one spot on a huge lake and saw it chilling there.

With God all things are possible. St Anthony pray for us and keep our stuff in reach!

Some government offices can get you a new one in 24 hours. Have you tried the Post Office. Some cities have a satellite City Hall.

You can get it replaced. Just go to your nearest passport office (good idea to call ahead and make sure you have all documents) and fill out a form for a lost/stolen passport show them another form of ID and your plane ticket and retake your picture and you will be issued a new one same day. Good luck!
