The American Citizen Services Unit at the U.S. Consulate in Kolkata can assist when a U.S. citizen in India is arrested, missing, is a victim of violent crime, becomes ill or dies, or when there is otherwise a need for immediate help. We can assist with information on local resources and by contacting family members in the United States apprised of the circumstances, so that they can make necessary decisions and provide financial and logistical support.
Please note that we can only replace lost and stolen passports during normal office hours.
