Can I Travel To Mauritius On A Temporary Passport 'LINK'

The embassy or consulate-general will ask the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for permission to issue an emergency travel document. This usually takes between 1 and 3 working days. If you have not attached a scan or photo of your lost or stolen passport or ID card, the waiting time may be longer.

If the Ministry of Foreign Affairs decides that you need a new passport or ID card instead, the process will take longer. This may happen if, for example, the country you are planning to travel to does not accept Dutch emergency travel documents. In that case you may have to wait for up to 4 weeks.

A temporary passport, which has a maximum validity of one year, may be issued in cases of emergency only. It must be returned to the issuing authority for cancellation after the travel is completed. The passport fee is currently CHF 100.00 for adults and children (see the list of fees available on the right side of this page for the equivalence in USD).

If you were issued an emergency, limited-validity passport at an Embassy or Consulate because you had urgent need of travel, you should apply to renew this passport for a full-validity passport as soon as possible. All applicants, even children, may apply by mail as long as the emergency passport is still valid

The method of application for temporary passport changes depending on whether you are applying in your country of residence or abroad. If you apply abroad, you have to approach an Embassy. If you are in your country, approach the relevant passport-issuance authorities.

If you are abroad, in order to apply for a temporary passport, you have to approach an Embassy or Consulate of your country within the foreign country*. For example, if you are a US citizen, and you lost your passport in France, you have to go to the Embassy of the United States in Paris.

In certain situations (such as a life or death emergency), a temporary passport can be issued in as little as one working day. However, there is really no pre-determined time on how long it will take for such a passport to be issued, as it depends on the Embassy/Consulate or passport authorities in your country.

The cost of a temporary passport differs depending on the country issuing the passport. You will likely have to pay the price for a regular passport, as well as a fee for the expedited application processing. A temporary passport is more expensive than a regular one, sometimes by a lot.

A temporary passport is issued by the relevant authorities in your country, and for all intents and purposes, it is just like a regular passport (for emergency cases). Even so, some countries may not accept a temporary passport as a valid travel document.

This will depend on the country you are visiting and how long your temporary passport is valid. When you apply for a visa (any type) you need a passport which is valid for at least another six months and has at least 1-2 blank pages.

Please note: Although we tried to be as thorough as possible, there will be some small differences in eligibility, requirements, or duration of temporary passports between different countries.

Please be advised that currently, routine passport processing in the United States can take 8-11 weeks. For an additional $60, domestic applicants can request expedited service. Domestic applicants also may request 1-2 day delivery of their completed passport for an additional fee. See for our current processing times and schedule of fees. Adults with 10-year passports can renew them by mail instead of appearing in person at a domestic passport acceptance facility. If you have urgent international travel plans, you may be eligible for an appointment at a domestic passport agency or center. Appointments are limited and must be scheduled by phone.
