Report the loss or theft immediately to the Paris office of the airline. It is the discretion of each airline whether or not to replace a stolen ticket. Replacement tickets are issued only after verification of the initial purchase of the ticket has been obtained from the airline’s home office.
The Embassy is NOT authorized to replace expired, lost, or stolen U.S. driver’s licenses. Only the issuing office (Department of Motor Vehicles) in the driver’s home state can perform that service. Callers who have had their driver’s licenses stolen in France, should report it to the French police. The police will issue a receipt of loss or theft, which may be used temporarily as a substitute for the license while the driver is in France.
