Putting an ID label with contact on a U.S. passport

Jump to last reply

I recently did a DUMB! thing and it has made me think. I left my travel wallet with passport inside (I had traveled from the US to Canada) on the airplane. I was really lucky this time because it did turn up in Alaska Airlines "Left On Board" department at SEA/TAC airport. (Even though I flew into Long Beach, CA) It had to be sent to me FED-EX, they won't send it on a plane back to your home airport.

Anyway, A U.S. passport has no form of contact on it (this may be for security reasons, I realize) So if I had lost it separately from the travel wallet and it was not on an airplane, say in a city somewhere, how would a good samaratan be abel to get it back to me. I am curious if anyone knows if there are any legal reasons I can not put some form of contact (probably cell phone number) so I could be contacted in case it was ever lost again. Is it government property and putting a label on it would be defacing it or perhaps there really is security reason that it may be forbidden. I would like to know.
