Hello Jacustomer,If you have your passport and you are no longer on probation or parole, you would be able to leave the US. The problem, if any, isn't going to be with the going. You will be allowed to leave the US and to come back. The problem would occur at the point of entry, where you could be turned away.There unfortunately is no reliable list on the web as to what countries have problems with which prior offenses. The regulations toughen or lessen all the time as social policy affects legislation around the world. So the only thing anyone can tell you is to contact the various embassies here in the States and ask them. Even if they say that you would not be allowed in with a criminal record, there are sometimes waivers that you could obtain from the Embassy which would allow you to get in and to circumvent embarrassment at the border.There's an article here which discusses some of the issues you may face getting to travel. These are personal and anonymous undated reports so you cannot assume that your experience will be the same at all, but you will at least be best prepared for any problems you may have to face. (See link) And here are the various Consulate numbers for Bermuda. (See link)Good luck!
