Do you need a passport or Travel Document?
We can apply for a document to enable you to travel outside the UK if you’re not British and can’t use or get a passport from your home country.
You must be living in the UK for one of the following reasons:
- you have permission to stay as a refugee or stateless person
- you have humanitarian protection for a limited time after a failed asylum application
- you have discretionary leave for a limited time after a failed asylum application
- you’re settled here permanently (known as ‘indefinite leave to remain’)
Types of travel documents
There are 4 different types you can apply for, depending on your status.
|Your status||Type of travel document|
|Refugee||Convention travel document|
|Stateless||Stateless person’s document|
|You want to leave and not come back||One-way document (also known as an IS137)|
|Refused a passport by your own national authorities||Certificate of travel|
