Does anyone know what the rule is regarding how many blank pages you can have in a convention travel document when applying for a replacement?

My partner has three blank pages left. We intend to travel to 2 countries where he requires a visa. The embassies have specified that he needs two blank pages for each visa.

Can he request a replacement travel document and include a letter explaining why he needs a new one when the current one has three blank pages or does he not have to include an explanation?

You can request one, for sure. Beware it may take up to 70 working days ( about 3 months) to get one though...

In our experience, they processed it after we emailed them to ask for supporting documents return. Not sure this impacted it, but may force them at least scan them, so could force it a step up the application process...

It took you 70 days to get a replacement travel document? Was the previous one you had expired or out of pages?

Just a question if you apply for a travel document are they going to send an acknowledgement letter?

Hi,
Based on experiences if anyone knows, does the travel document always get delivered by DX? Do they always send a text? When do they send it?
If anyone received their travel document recently, please share the time line.
Thank you!!

1. Etihad Airways (UAE)
2. Qatar Airways (Qatar)
3. Air Astana (KAZ)
4. Thomson Airways (UK)
5. Aeroflot (RUS)
6. British Airways (UK)
7. Azal (AZE)
8. Air Malta (MAL)
9. Lufthansa (GER)
10. FinnAir (FIN)

I know some solicitor's charge ridiculous amounts of money. But some solicitors charge only £5 or £10 to sign the photo or the form.

Refugee travel document takes 20 days or 30days.A shopkeeper or a security guard ,a taxi driver or any professional person can sign the photo.It is a big joke to look for a GP or Solicitor to sign a photo .When it takes more than 30days ,a person should contact HO.
