What Countries are Turning Away Registered Sex Offenders at Their Airports /Points of Entry? See RTAG’s International Travel Matrix for RSO’s


I don’t know how accurate the below information is and I don’t know anything about RTAG. 

But one of the most reoccurring email questions I receive is about International Travel for RSO’s so I wanted to share this brand new information with everyone. 

If you have questions about the below information or know something is incorrect based on a personal experience, I suggest you contact RTAG as it’s their data.

RTAG’s International Travel Matrix, June 21, 2016

Registrant Travel Action Group (RTAG – www.registranttag.org), an RSOL affiliate organized to protect the international travel rights for lawful travel of registrants, is putting together a travel matrix, to serve as a snapshot guide to warn which countries you may have difficulty traveling to.

Since the US is now sending out travel alerts whenever a registered citizen travels, you need to be mindful of issues you may have at certain borders.

The below matrix is a work-in-progress and if you have traveled internationally as a registered citizen, we ask that you share your experience with RTAG (good or bad), so that information can be shared.


You can reach RTAG at the following:
