Ad Hoc Committee on Refugees and Stateless Persons, Fourth Report of the Draft Committee on Articles of the Draft Convention relating to the Status of Refugees (E/AC.32/L.40 and E/170/Add.7)
Article 5 - second paragraph Exemption from exceptional measures
Nothing in this Article shall prevent a Contracting State, in time of war or national emergency, from taking provisionally measures essential to the national security in the case of any person, pending a determination that the particular person is in fact a refugee and that such measures are still necessary in his case in the interests of national security.
Article 17 Public education
1. The Contracting States shall accord to refugees the same treatment as is accorded to nationals with respect to elementary education.
2. The Contracting States shall accord to refugees the most favourable treatment accorded to nationals of a foreign country with respect to education other than elementary education and in particular as regards access to studies, the remission of fees and charges and the award of scholarships.
Article 23 Travel documents
1. The Contracting States shall issue, on request, to a refugee lawfully resident in their territory, a travel document for the purpose of travel outside their territory; and the provisions of the Schedule to this Convention shall apply with respect to such document. The Contracting States may issue such a travel document to any other refugee (in their territory) who is not in possession of such a document, and shall give particular consideration to refugees in their territory who are unable to obtain any travel document in the country of their lawful residence.
2. Travel documents issued to refugees under previous international agreements by parties thereto shall be recognized and treated by the Contracting States in the same way as if they had been issued pursuant to this article.
Paragraph 6 (3)
The Contracting States shall give sympathetic consideration to renewing or extending the validity of travel documents or issuing new documents to refugees no longer lawfully resident in their territory who are unable to obtain a travel document from the country of their lawful residence.
Paragraph 13 (15)
1. The document shall entitle the holder to leave the country where it has been issued and, during the period of validity of the document, to return thereto without a visa from the authorities of that country, subject only to those regulations which apply to returning resident aliens bearing duly visaed passports or other re-entry permit. Where a visa is required of a returning national a visa may be required of a returning refugee but shall be issued to him on request and without delay.
2. The Contracting States reserve the right, in exceptional cases, or in cases where the refugee's stay is authorized for a specific period, when issuing the document, to limit the period during which the refugee may return to a period of not less than three months.
