Convention Travel Document

July 29, 2020 69

A refugee (ie somebody who has successfully claimed asylum) is entitled to apply for a Convention Travel Document. The countries which are parties to the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees – including the UK – are obliged to issue Convention Travel Documents to refugees lawfully resident in their territory. It enables the holder to travel abroad but, for obvious reasons, not to the country from which they sought protection.

Almost all countries in the world will accept a Convention Travel Document as a valid document for travel, but only certain countries will admit the holder visa-free. In many cases they require the holder to also have a visa for travel.

There is no strong pattern to this. Many European countries allow visa-free travel but some of them do not and the majority of countries outside Europe do not either. But, in any case, the rules about this change quite frequently, so it is not possible to compile a useful list of countries that do and countries that do not and there is no official list.

So if you hold a Convention Travel Document and you want to travel to a particular country you need to make enquiries with that country’s embassy to find out whether a visa is required.

At Get UK Visa we have a lot of experience of travel document applications and issues and if you have issues or problems we may be able to help you.

  • review rating 5  First of all we want to thank everyone at GET UK VISA for everything they have done. Mr Kouros Adonis and Mr Oliver Westmoreland along with Mr Teimoory, Manija Haschemi and Maryam Pourseyedi are the most amazing, caring, professional, knowledgeable, honest and determined team I have ever encountered. I only wish and hope everyone in helping individuals, couples and families with immigration matters would be as incredible as they are. It is an honour to be lucky enough to have met each one of them and to be able to share our experience with everyone. Without them our dear friends child would not have survived in our birth country and now father and son would never have been able to be reunited. That dream has become a reality and now they are able to be together once again. Many thanks, Ms S. Mansouri
