Travel Document

Canada issues two different types of travel documents to non-Canadians:

  • Refugee travel document: these are issued to protected persons in Canada, including convention refugees or persons in need of protection; and
  • Certificate of identity: these are issued to permanent residents of Canada who are not protected persons and are stateless and cannot obtain a national passport or travel document from any other source.

Once IRCC has received the application, they will be able to determine whether to issue a:

  • Refugee Travel Document; or
  • Certificate of Identity
