Ok so my fiance was convicted of two felonies for weed distribution in missouri. Would he be able to go on a cruise or obtain a passport?
Country relating to Question: United States
Welcome and thank you for your question!Please clarify: has he completed his sentence/probation in those cases?
he has completed both prison sentences and is no longer on probation for either
oh and sorry it was not distribution it was possession
Thank you. He will have no problem in obtaining a U.S. Passport.He will have no problem being on a U.S. cruise.That said, each country has its own requirements/limitations on who they allow into their boarders. You have to check each country individually. He may experience a problem entering into some countries (say, for example, Canada: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/inadmissibility/rehabilitation.asp Other countries don't care.Again, each foreign country is different. For the specifics, he can contact the U.S. Embassy in that particular country.It has been my pleasure to assist you today with your information needs. It is my goal that you are satisfied.
