When you apply for a passport doesnt it ask you on there to declare if you have a criminal record?
I would think if its something petty that they did 20 years ago it wouldnt matter.....
Drug charges....I wouldnt think so

Best to check the embassy like Marianne said

Hi Guys and Gals,

After some investigation it has been found that you can get a passport if all convictions have been dealt with and that there are no outstanding warrents against you. To enter a country you have to call the relevant Embassy to see if you can enter that country. So they you go very fasinating. I learnt something out of this myself.

Just as long as you declare convictions, no problemo. The only country that has ever wanted to make phonecalls about our convictions and give us a bit of a grilling have been socialist countries - ie China & Vietnam.

Ive actually never seen Bali deny anyone a visa on arrival although I have seen Thailand do it and I was refused a visa on arrival in Singapore almost 25 years ago and they still will only give me a transit visa which im ok with, i dont want to stay there. I flew into Bali once with a plane load of guys having a party with their mate who had just got out of jail 3 days prior after doing a three year sentence for assault and possession and he sailed through with no problems.

Yeh Dirtbug damn those countries who insist on formalities. China are not as stringent with their checking as Vietnam is....took 6 weeks for our Vietnam E Visas to be issued - when I rang the Visa agency to check why it was taking so long they said "Because you are criminals" and hung up LOL (my convictions are all spent and at least 20 years old). They eventually came through the day before we left Aus and even after issuiing them they gave us another good drilling and searched everything and charged us another $50USD (Beware of E Visas..in some countries, particularly Vietnam, they are an invitation to apply for a visa).

How rude of them to talk and hang up like that...It is amazing how you get treated when people find out that you have criminal record and that it has been dealt with years ago. How mant times have you been to Bali?
