The DOJ’s Identity Theft Passport program provides victims of identity theft with a way to substantiate the crime of identity theft to creditors and law enforcement. Victims of identity theft can present their passports to law enforcement agencies to help prevent arrest for offenses committed by someone using stolen information, to creditors to aid in the investigation of fraudulent charges, and to consumer reporting agencies as official notice of disputed charges on credit reports.
To be eligible for a passport, you must file a report with the police agency that has jurisdiction over your residence. You can apply for a passport at the same time you file your report with the police.
