"does a passport show criminal record" No. On its face, a passport document does not show an actual criminal record. However, part of the screening process will include the immigration officials reviewing an applicant's criminal history. If you have specific concerns about a particular situation, it would be a good idea to speak with a representative of the Bureau of Consular Affairs, U.S. Department of State by calling(NNN) NNN-NNNN Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., Eastern Standard Time (except federal holidays).
