Refugees are issued a passport for refugees, which is a Convention travel document. Beneficiaries of subsidiary protection can use their national passport; in case they do not have one the competent authority issues them a passport for foreigners.
Refugees are normally issued a passport with a validity period of 10 years. Passports for foreigners issued to beneficiaries for subsidiary protection are issued for the same time period as the subsidiary protection.
A person holding a refugee status applies for the refugee passport with the Ministry of the Interior, which must issue the document in 15 days. A person holding subsidiary protection applies for their passport for foreigners with the Administrative Unit of their place of residence.
In 2021, the authorities issued 77 passports to persons with international protection.
