Lost passport!

My girlfriend applied for a partner visa via mail to the Washington DC embassy on 5th July and we got a confirmation email (with the case officer's name, but no contact details) on 15th July.

We were going to get the health check done this week, but we can't find her passport! D:

What should we do? Should we get a replacement passport right away? The US passport website says it takes 4 to 6 weeks. Should we contact the Washington Embassy and let them know somehow?

Ask the doctor if another form of ID is possible. I would also ask the embassy if they can issue some proof of her indentification/ citizenship while you apply for a replacement. And also make sure you report to the police that it is lost.

Yes, you should also let the Aust. embassy know. Just give them her name, when she applied and for what visa. I would quote the COs name when you call, maybe they can connect you to them or make sure the message is directed to the right person.

If you gave a certified copy of the passport with her application, maybe you can ask for it back?

definitely let the embassy know if you are applying for a new passport

pretty sure you can get a temporary passport?? use that as ID for your medical exam.
