It goes without saying that a passport is a very important document. Not only does a passport grant permission to residents of a country to travel abroad, but it also contains extremely important information about the person, such as their address, date of birth, place of birth, as well as their signature. These details are private and personal, and must be duly safeguarded from unknown people.
However, it may so happen that a passport gets misplaced or lost, and this can happen due to any reason. When a passport gets lost, it needs to be found and retrieved as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, sometimes it is not possible to retrieve a lost passport.
Just as when any other valuable document gets lost or misplaced, it becomes imperative to arrange for the issuance of duplicates. For passports too, the issuance of a duplicate passport will need to be arranged for at the earliest. The first step in this process is the publication of a lost document ad in a newspaper. This ad serves to inform the public that the loss of the passport is genuine and the application for a fresh passport is legitimate and rightful.
In other words, this ad is an announcement that is made to the public as a declaration that a passport has been lost, and this is a legal requirement that has to be fulfilled. Along with booking a loss of documents ad, an FIR will need to be registered with the police.
For the loss of documents ad, the ad will need to be booked in at least two newspapers – one must be an English language newspaper, and one must be a regional language newspaper of the respective state that the person who lost the passport is a resident of.
Once these formalities have been completed, it will be possible to apply for the issue of a fresh passport. To help make that process easier for you, releaseMyAd is here to help you book your lost documents ad in the newspapers of your choice.
