  • I would like to know my passport is not stamped would I still have trouble going to certain countries

    • If you are a registrant in the USA then you have to give a 21 day notice before traveling. This will generate the notice that is sent out to the country/ies in question that you tell them you’re going to visit. In many countries that will then result in you being refused entry/deported. Won’t matter if your passport is stamped or not. But if you do travel without the stamp (and you are supposed to have it) then you’ll subsequently find that your passport has been revoked and you’ll have to get a new one.

    • If you try to fly without a marked passport, they will confiscate it at the gate. It happened to me. Had to cancel my trip and get the marked passport a few months later.

    • Where (specifically) were you traveling and which country confiscated your passport – the American side upon leaving or the destination side upon arriving??

  • James commented on the post, Going to Thailand 11 months ago

  • I’m thinking of going to Thailand I’m a registered Tier-II offender I have passport that’s not stamped.  Any info about if I can get in or not any info would be greatly appreciated!

     

    • If you are a registered offender in any state in the US, then you will have to give 21-day advance notice of travel as required by the stipulations of International Megan’s Law. This will lead to an INTERPOL Green travel notice being transmitted to the immigration authorities at your destination airport. You will be stopped and questioned upon arrival. Thailand will not allow anyone they receive notice about enter their country. Having an identifier in your passport or not won’t matter. Once you travel on your passport (without the identifier) and it is discovered that you are required to have it, your passport will be revoked and you will have to get a replacement with the stamp. Do not attempt to go anywhere in Southeast Asia or any other English-speaking country because you will be turned away.
