i am.a registered sex offender in north carolina. i have completed active prison time and probation. i would like to know how to find out about travel to foreign countries on vacation. i do not want to arrive in a country with a hotel reserved, etc. and be sent back-like martha stewart was in london a while back. how do i find out this information? i am 62 years old, retired, and have always loved to travel before all this happened in 2002. thank you very much. by the way, the sheriif deputy here who is in charge of sex offender registry for the city i live in said " if youre gone more than 10 days on vacation, you need to tell me". we have to go in person twice a year 3 days after receiving our letters, to the sheriff dept. to verify our address and photo. the sheriff deputies also come to our residences 2-3 times a year, sometimes at 10 pm at night to verify our face and residency. what if im in europe or wherever on vacation, and they come around, and im not there, etc etc? anyone with some insight on this travel matter would be helpful. i do have a valid us passport. someone said a congressman or senator could find out. eugene howard

I would be interested in your responses on this question. My adult son is also registered here in NC. He is no threat to anyone especially a child. He and his brother would like to to travel to Europe when he is off probation next summer. He recently relocated to NC and is finding that the SO laws are much more stringent than CA, even though his conviction was a misdeanor.
