  2. Overall, since the adoption of the Recast Qualification Directive, the rights and benefits to both beneficiaries of refugee and subsidiary protection status are the same. However, some differentiation has been made, in recognition of the primacy of the Geneva Refugee Convention and Protocol and the premise of the more temporary nature of the subsidiary protection status, subsidiary protection beneficiaries are entitled to less generous rights than refugees, i.e. with regard to the duration of residence permits, the issuance of travel documents and the access to social welfare.
