Fugitive Edward Snowden is on the run despite having had his passport revoked. So when can you travel without a passport?
rahad alex's insight:

The US state department has revoked Snowden's passport and asked other countries to prevent him from travelling.Wanted on espionage charges, the American flew from Hong Kong to Moscow on 23 June - using his US passport, according to one of his lawyers - and has applied for asylum in Ecuador.On Monday, a seat was booked in his name on a flight to Cuba, but he was not seen on board.

A passport is usually a condition of international travel, so under what circumstances can one travel without one?According to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, Snowden has a "special refugee travel document" issued by Ecuador.Millions of refugees cross borders without passports as they flee persecution or fighting.In 2012, more than seven million people became refugees,according to the united nations.Without passports, people would be expected to present some other form of identification, says Larry Yungk, a UNHCR resettlement officer. Some refugees can be registered at a border with no identification at all.
