For British Citizens
Depending on whether you are a child or an adult, applying for your first passport or a replacement passport, the requirements will vary.
For Non-UK nationals
If you are not a British citizen and are unable to use or obtain a passport from your country, we can help you apply for a travel document from the Home Office.
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
- you have discretionary leave for a limited time after a failed asylum application
- you’re settled here permanently (you have ‘indefinite leave to remain’)
You must show that you’ve formally applied for and been unreasonably refused a passport by the authorities in your country, unless you have permission to be in the UK as a refugee or stateless person.
Depending on your status, there are four categories of travel document you can apply for.
|Your Status||Type of Travel Document||Adult Fee||Child (15 or under) Fee|
|Refugee||Convention travel document||£75||£49|
|Stateless||Stateless person’s document||£75||£49|
|You want to leave and not come back||One-way document (IS137)||£75||£49|
|Refused a passport by your own national authorities||Certificate of Travel||£280||£141|
