Passport Travel with Criminal Record

Customer Question

I am an American citizen and I have a felony theft conviction on my record from years ago. I am applying for a passport as the company I am working for is planning on opening an office in india. By all accounts it doesn't look like I will have any issues as the conviction happened almost 10 years ago, off probation for almost 5 years, and the case is closed but will I have any issue getting into countries for work?


 


I am not sure how to change this to the correct category but European Law isn't applicable

Customer :

Just to be clear, I am looking to travel with a passport not a visa, are you saying I need to apply for a visa to determine eligibility to travel?

Abogado3044 :

In order to work there you will need a visa which requires the criminal record of you to be presented. So they will have the innformation from it but they could consider the record cancelated. You will be required to present the criminal record when you ask for the visa and you have to wait until they decided
