How long does it take to get a Refugee Travel Document?

Question: How long does it take to get a US Refugee Travel Document? I am planning on traveling outside the country around October or November.

Our Seattle clients have been waiting close to 4 months recently. The Phoenix lockbox seems slow these days. For certain reasons, you can expedite your travel application (severe financial loss, extreme emergent situation, humanitarian situation) If you think you meet one of these reasons you could put in a request to expedite with USCIS. The request to expedite takes about a week, and then USCIS asks for your proof and reviews it. An attorney could help determine if you have a strong case for expediting, and could help you with the process.
