Hi visa journey people, I am really confused and I need help.. I would like to share a little background of me. So

I came here in the US aug 17, 2016 in k1 visa,

got married Nov 7, 2016

Sent aos application dec 12, 2016

Did biometrics today jan 18,2017


I just noticed today that i lost my passport cause i wanted to carry it with me on my biometrics, but since i couldn't find it,, i just took my State ID with me. And i went to the biometrics without any problems. 

The last time i saw my passport was when i was sending my aos application dec 12, i just realized it today. I thought it was just sitting safe in my stash, but i think i left it while i was scanning it on staples.  I already went to staples and they advised me to call the usps cause they said they send govt ids to usps to send it back to the owner. But passport doesn't have my current address. 


I tried to call the usps but they advised me to call the passport agency to report my passport lost or stolen.  I will go tomorrow and try my luck in the local usps where the staples send the ids. 


Anyway, my main concern is, if ever i will have interview, will it be a big problem if i lost my passport? Will they deny me or delay the process if i don't show my passport? 

What should i do? 


Help me please.. Thank you so much for your reply.

Not sure if it will delay you process or get you denied; but I would definately get a hold of the nearest Philippines Embassy and ask about replacing it quick.

I was reading on the website of Philippine embassy, it says 8-10 weeks, and cannot be expedited... And there's another line there about replacement for lost, there could be additional 15 days.. Do you know how long usually the uscis reply or ask for interview after biometrics?
