Renewing Canadian Refugee Travel Document

Discussion in 'Refugees and Asylum' started by letsgocarl, Jan 13, 2018.

  1. Hi,

    I am currently holding a PR but my Canadian refugee travel document (blue travel document) is about to be expired because I got this document before I became a PR so it only had a two-year validity. Can you please let me know what the renewing procedure and the required documents are? I can't seem to be able to find it anywhere. Do I need to submit a brand new application to get a brand new travel document? I have a US visa issued on my current travel document and I want to keep it.

    Thank you so much!
     
  2. You can't get a RTD. You are now a PR so you have to use your PR card for travel now.

  3. Hi

    You need to apply for a new travel document. I suggest you contact Passport Canada to find out about keeping your previous document.

    OP is inquiring about a Refugee Travel Document, which is used in place of their passport. A PR card is not a travel document and can't be used in place of one.
     
  5. as a PR you will get the "certificate of identity". RTD is for refugee without PR.

  8. Hello Manpreet,

    Sorry to say but a refugee claimant can only be eligible to travel outside of Canada ,after their hearing and when they got their case accepted. Thank you

  9. But i got letter from immigration department in letter they are saying that your hearing date is postponed for administrative reasons. Do you have any idea what would be my next date ? Or there any chance to get a hearing date sooner ?
     
  10. It depends based on the flaw of recent claims. Normally if a hearing is postponed then it gets rescheduled after 1.5 year to 2 year time frame, but again it depends.

    And there is no way to get your hearing sooner.

    The TRAVEL DOCUMENT IS ONLY FOR ACCEPTED CLAIMANTS .. not for those who are waiting for hearing or their hearing got postponed.

    Hope that helps, wish you will get your hearing soon.

  11. Im new here hoping to get answers regarding travel documents renewal

    I have a valid travel document which will expire in sometime in march.
    I bought a ticket to travel in dec which i need to apply for a visa but i couldnt send in my travel document cuz is not valid for 6months.
    I also find out my PR Card has expired which i spent in few weeks ago for renewal.
    To apply for traveling document renewal I will have to have a valid PR.

    So what i did was to send in application for travel document with my expired PR card, Recipt for pr renewal fee and a letter to explain my situation.

    Just wondering if they will go ahead and process my Travel document????
     
  12. THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE.
     
  13. Negative. Let's not post things we are not sure about and confuse people here.

    With a PR, under refugee program, you can still get a Travel document after expiration because you are NOT supposed to use your passport of origin. So, you need to apply for a new one.
