Refugee Travel Documents
What is a Refugee Travel Documents application?
Refugee Travel Documents: You can apply for a Home Office travel document if you have Refugee status and would like to travel outside of the UK. An Adult Travel Document costs £75 and a child Travel Document costs £49. Some countries do not accept Refugee Travel Documents or require you to meet certain visa requirements before travel.
All documents need to include a date, and a signature where necessary. Documents that need a signature are: letters, tenancy agreements, forms, certificates, or any evidence you get from someone else (your employer)
