UK to reduce cost for travel documents for refugees

The UK Border Agency will in October 2012 reduce the cost of applying for travel documents issued to refugees and stateless persons, and for a one way travel document which is known as a Document of Identity (IS137).

The cost of documents will be reduced by £5 for adults and £3 for children.

From October 2012 the fees will be:

1951 UN Convention travel document issued to refugees
Adult: £72.50
Child: £46

1954 UN Convention travel document issued to Stateless persons
Adult: £72.50
Child: £46

Document of identity (IS 137)
Adult £72.50
Child £46

If you apply for a 1951 or 1954 Convention travel document before October 2012 you must pay the current fee. You will not be entitled to a refund after the fee has been reduced.

The fees for a certificate of Travel will not change.
