This kind of a SIM card requires less documentation to be purchased and can be taken from any country. Travel sim card is known by other names such as roaming sim card.
Travel or Roaming SIM cards can be availed from any part of the world. Say if you are a resident of U.K. and travelling to Singapore, it is not possible for you take a SIM of Singapore while sitting in the country of your residence. However, you can take an international roaming sim card while being present in U.K.
