Lost Mauritian passport but living in uk,how do I get a replacement quick ?
I am a Mauritian citizen and have recently lost my passport. I want to replace it , but I need to know how to do that and what is the quickest way?
And is it possible to do it in uk in the Mauritian embassy, so I don't have to send it back home to Mauritius.
Thanks in advance for the advice.
You can make an application at the Mauritian Embassy in the UK but they will forward it to the Passport Office in Mauritius. I know someone who tried to renew their passport this way and 3 months later, they still didn't get any reply back.
So quickest way would be to get a statement from the police station in the UK, fill out the passport application form mentioning you've lost yours, post it to your relative in Mauritius along with a covering letter stating you're allowing that person to represent you and collect your passport and ask that relative to post it back to you.
