A recognised refugee may travel abroad with a travel document for refugees, because he may no longer use the international passport of his country of origin.
Short stay abroad
Before his departure, the recognised refugee must inquire at the embassy or the consulate of the country of destination whether he needs a visa for his trip. A short stay is for a maximum period of three months.
Long stay abroad
The recognised refugee must inform the municipality if he wants to stay in another country for a longer period of time. The recognised refugee has the right to return to Belgium within 1 year; after that, a return is not guaranteed.
If the recognised refugee wants to settle in another country, he will be subject to the laws and regulations of that country.
