Hello, my name is Judith. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions. I have 34 years experience as a licensed immigration
He needs to file a police report and get a new passport issued.
He also needs to send an email to the US Embassy immediately to notify them of the lost passport
so they can cancel the visa so no one else can use it. It is is used by someone then he will have a very long wait to get a new visa issued.
The visa office will investigate this before re-issuing the visa in the new passport because there is a lot of visa fraud and people say they lost their passport and instead sell it for someone else to use to enter the US and then they try to get a new visa issued in a new passport.
Diplomatic Security will get involved in investigating this and may even call your fiance in or go to his home and interview him to determine if this is a bona fide lost passport.
Nothing is going to happen fast here and actually the 4 months may expire and he may no longer qualify for re-issuance.
Not a good thing for him to loose. It has really complicated your and his life.
