This is a copy of the same question I asked on the travel forum and there they asked me to ask about it here.
I am an Indian student residing in Italy, my girlfriend is also a student from India residing in Vienna, today her wallet containing her passport (with visa) and residence permit were stolen.
We promptly filed a report at the local police station, where the police office told us that the report is enough for travelling to Vienna (she left today).
I printed out the last and front pages of the passport as well as the the visa and attached them to the report, hoping that will be enough for her return trip.
I understand from previous posts that the Embassy at Vienna will issue her a temporary passport.
But I am a bit scared, as she has no other documents with her. Not even the residence permit. How would she go about regenerating everything?
For now we decided that she will go to the local police station in vienna and file another report before proceeding to the embassy for a temporary passport.
But what happens from there?
