If you are a convicted felon can you travel outside of the U.S., specifically to Ireland? I would not think you could if you are currently on probation or parole, but after. I have been told that to Ireland you only need a passport and not a visa, but that if the U.S. grants a passport, it would then be up to Ireland to ok entry to their country after checking you against a criminal database? If so, Is that also true of other countries? Thank you very much.
