Convention and Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees

The United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees (also known as the 1951 Refugee Convention) defines who qualifies as a refugee, the rights of those granted asylum and the responsibilities of nations who grant the asylum. Relevant to seafarers is Article 11 (Refugee Seamen) of Chapter I:"In the case of refugees regularly serving as crew members on board a ship flying the flag of a Contracting State, that State shall give sympathetic consideration to their establishment on its territory and the issue of travel documents to them or their temporary admission to its territory particularly with a view to facilitating their establishment in another country." This document includes the 1967 Protocol which amends certain parts of the Convention. (476 KiB, PDF, 56 pages)
