Dang, just saw this notice now.

Was there any new info provided on this call?

i tried calling in my phone plan said i couldnt even though i pay highest plan rate i will investigate cause i was able to the last one METRO PCS has heard the last of me for sure lol. i will listen to the recording later

Does anyone have any information on some government practices with regard to International Travel? First I seem to have read that our government does not use a past conviction as the sole justification for sending the notifications. Does anyone have any real information about what is used? Is there any way to discover what information the government used? Second, is there a process to discover what Interpol sent to justify their warning? Thanks.
I have an Immigration lawyer in Mexico City that seems to know what he is doing.

As someone who has a spouse in Mexico, this conference was very informative.

Also- I have informed a leading psychologist in New York about the future challenge to IML, and hopefully she could be of help.

Who is Kerry trying to get into Chile?

I wish he would express his story on here.

I have a few questions. Does this law only affect child related offenders? What if I travel with an expunged battery? I never had issues until I flew back to the US (all airports where very courteous etc/other than LAX)

This ( ) is a US citizen who was not required to check in with the police when traveling to another state, was allowed to travel internationally without a “Unique Identifier” on his passport, and is not required to be on any type of registry for anything on his long rap sheet and 17 prior arrests.

I don’t think the problem is Interpol. I wanted to visit Greece and wrote to three attorneys in Athens and received these replies:

“Such a list or equivalent of it doesn’t exist in Greece. More than that, the Greek authorities only receive notifications from Interpol for serious cases and regarding international warrants of arrest and not for previous convictions, which they don’t interest the Greek authorities for tourists who enter the Greek territory. Therefore my opinion is that there will be no problem for you regarding your holidays.”

“I would imagine that you will not have a problem in Greece with this issue since we do not even have a registry of this sort for our own offenders.”

“I have made an extensive research on the matter of entry of sex offenders in Greece and to the extent I have reached through that research there is no indication that Greece would deny entry of a former sex offender in its soil. Unless there is a secret agreement between the two nations (which is virtually impossible) I could not see how your entry to Greece would be affected. Since I have not seen one single piece of legislation addressing the matter (during the research I conducted for your matter) I cannot focus and connect my advice on a particular Act of the Hellenic Parliament addressing your matter and give a more scientific hint on my advice. Also I am not aware of a bi-national agreement neither did I find one during my research that indicates that Greece and the US are co-operating on the matter in question i.e. not allowing entry of US sex offenders in Greece and vice versa. Privacy issues have not made possible the enactment of legislation in respect to dissemination of data about individuals such as yourself in the EU.”

Greece is a Schengen country.

Someone talked about Indonesia on the recording, where Paul got the information from that it turns away SO? I can’t find anything here and have emailed him. I wish he could share it with us a brief story of this that happened after IML, when did it happen or reported. The international posts reported someone could get in but Paul and the matrix say otherwise. Please!

Unfortunately, I was not able to attend this call to ask the following question, but was hoping that someone might have an idea as to the answer, or possible someone in a similar situation.

In my current state of residence (NV), I was luckily able to go to court to obtain a termination of duty to register as a former Tier 1 offense. So in NV I am currently completely off the registry, and technically NV is considered a SORNA compliant state.

I am however still on the registry in Florida, which was the state of my original offense. Have been told by FL that their registry is independent of all others and thus I can not be removed for a minimum of 25 years.

So being in a bit of no mans land between two states, was wondering if I would still fall under the auspices of the IML when attempting to travel. Since I have no current obligations to the registry in my current state of residence, would not even know where I would report intent to travel if it was somehow still necessary.


Anyone knows if we can travel to Guam or not? It’s us territory and need to register or not?
