Good morning all,

I have the chance to travel to Israel in December for free (other than a refunded deposit/passport fees etc.) for religious reasons.

Problem! I'm on felony probation. My felony is "receiving stolen goods". I've been on since December 2011 and will be on til December 2017.

I had a passport from like...2003 or 2004 until it expired, which I don't remember when it did expire, but I know I used it in 2005 or 6 to go to Canada.

I also am not caught up on my state fines/supervision fees.

Will all this disqualify me, you think?

I doubt your PO will allow you to leave the country, or even the state.

You might be able to get the passport fine, but actually going? Very doubtful.

It's a possibility that she won't. But I figure since it's for religious reasons and I'll be with a "tour group" the whole time, she might let me. I see her on Thursday and will certainly be asking.

At the least you'll have to get caught up on your fees.

You are disqualified on the basis of being behind on fines and supervision fees alone. Here's a hint--use the money you would use for the journey to pay your bills. Go to Temple, performs your Mitzvah's, and think about anything but being an upstanding citizen and helping others only after you finish paying your debt to society.

If you've been convicted of a felony, check with your parole officer before applying to be sure you're allowed to seek a passport.

And also, if there is some issue or problem with your parole terms that you can get in trouble for - the customs officers will catch you when you re-enter the US, I assure you. It will all be there in their database.

But of course, if you have issues with your parole you probably won't be issued a passport in the first place.

If you are convicted felon, it is very likely that Israel or any country will not let you into the country in the first place even if it's just for visiting purposes. With bio-metric passports all immigration and customs need to do is just swipe your passport on the reader and any past criminal activity will show up on the screen and you would be instantly flagged, detained. and/or deported.
