Travel documents for non-Canadian adults and children

Services at the Certificate of Identity Office are suspended until further notice

If you submitted an application for a refugee travel document or certificate of identity, we’ll process it when service returns to normal.

If you need to travel urgently, find out how to get urgent travel document services.

Canada issues two types of travel documents: the refugee travel document and the certificate of identity.

They are issued to residents of Canada who are convention refugees, protected persons, and stateless persons. They are also issued to permanent residents who can’t get a national travel document for a valid reason.
