With better technology, foreign governments are checking passenger manifests with more scrutiny and even denying valid Passports. To get a US Passport, you only need to prove you are a US Citizen with no *outstanding* warrants or certain types of convictions, including drug convictions, owed child support, DUI's, domestic violence, predatory behavior or ANY felony arrest history. HOWEVER>>> Many Foreign Governments will DENY ENTRY for these past federal, state or local criminal or offensive actions. It is every traveling passenger’s full responsibility to check and verify any and all passport, visa, vaccination or other entry requirements for their intended destination. If any of these issues apply, avoid entry detention, call for private discussion. More information can be found at www.travel.state.gov.
