Full Answer

Before traveling outside of the United States and its territories, an individual must first obtain a passport. Depending upon the type of felony conviction the person has, he or she may not be allowed to obtain a passport. For example, if someone has been convicted of drug trafficking, he or she may be prohibited from obtaining a passport. Anyone with child support arrears during a certain amount are also barred from receiving a valid passport. It is important to check current laws related to applying for a passport before submitting an application.

If an individual does have a valid passport and is allowed to travel outside of the U.S. without violating the terms of that person's parole, the individual can travel to other countries. However, some countries will not allow a convicted felon to enter if the conviction is related to a violent crime. In Canada, anyone convicted of driving while intoxicated may be barred from entering the country. If a person has been convicted of a crime that would have been punishable by more than 23 months in prison if the crime was committed in the United Kingdom, he or she may be banned from entering the U.K. regardless of where the crime was committed. Those wishing to travel to some countries, including Belgium or Jamaica, will be required to have a return airline ticket and sufficient funds available before entering the country.
