Summary of Changes/Comments
April 9, 2021 - The United Nations Travel Documents Programme (UNTDP) within the Travel and Transportation Section (TTS) of the Department of Operational Support (DOS) has issued a “Standard Operating Procedure for the Issuance of United Nations Travel Documents” (SOP).This SOP supersedes the 2012 edition of “The Guide to the Issuance of United Nations Travel Documents” (the Guide) as of 1 April 2021.

Due to constantly evolving security situations, the list of common criteria for exceptions that were previously applied (Section D, paragraph 10 of the Guide) no longer apply.

Under the revised procedures RRs at the D1 level or below will not receive a red UNLP unless the request is signed off by the UNDP Administrator and approved by the USG of DOS.

The form to request the cancelation of a UNLP (TTS.7) has been updated by TTS.

August 13, 2020 - The UN Family Certificate Application form has been updated to follow the format of other UN TTS travel forms and is prefaced with instructions for completing the form.

July 21, 2020 – Updated UN Certificate Application form and the templates for transmitting requests to and from the country offices. Removed the reference to the paper F-10 which has been replaced by online Travel Claim in Atlas T&E.

August 1, 2019 - Eliminated references to processing claims through the AP module. The UNLP Cancellation form is now available in the UN Travel Documents and National Passport policy. To facilitate the processing of returned travel documents, UN HQ Travel and Transportation Section (UN TTS) is requesting that each Laissez-Passer (LP) which is submitted for cancellation, without the application for a new LP, is sent along with this form (TTS.7).

8 September, 2017 - Updated UNLP Application Form

5 February, 2014 - Updated content to reflect the Guide to Issuance of UN Travel Document. Removed Visa guidance.
