If home office ( UKBA) has given you permission to stay in the United Kingdom as  a refugee, then you can apply  for a convention travel document. This document is provided in a way that was set out in part of the 1951 United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees.

When you apply, you must be legally resident in the United Kingdom and be able to prove your refugee status here. You can prove that you have permission to stay in the United Kingdom as a refugee by providing any documents we have sent you containing the following official reference numbers:

 ACD0122
 ACD 2151
 ASL 2151
 ADL 1
 ASL 2167
 GEN 23
 GEN 22I
 CD 0726

You must have permission to stay here for at least six months from the date when you make your application. This is because other countries may not accept your travel document if you have less than six months' permission to return to the United Kingdom. If your current permission to remain here will expire in less than six months, you must apply to extend your stay before you can apply for a travel document.

Except in exceptional circumstances, you cannot use a Home Office convention travel document to travel to your country of origin, or the country from which you sought asylum. It will normally be valid for travel to all other countries.

A convention travel document issued to an adult will usually be valid for 10 years if you have permission to stay in the United Kingdom permanently (known as 'indefinite leave to remain'). If you have temporary permission to stay in the United Kingdom (known as 'limited leave to remain'), your convention travel document will usually be valid for the same period as your permission to stay here, up to a maximum of five years.

Children cannot be named on the travel document of their parent or guardian. A convention travel document issued to a child will usually be valid for five years if the child has permission to stay in the United Kingdom permanently. If the child has temporary permission to stay in the United Kingdom, the document will usually be valid for the same period as their permission to stay here, up to a maximum of five years.
