Travel Restrictions

Generally, you will not be allowed to travel outside the judicial district (the State of Wyoming) during the first 60 days of supervision.

It is your responsibility to keep your USPO informed of your whereabouts at all times. While you are on supervision, you may not travel outside the District of Wyoming without the permission of your USPO. You may travel freely within the state for day trips. However, if you are required to submit urinalysis and would like to travel within the state of Wyoming, you must obtain permission from your USPO if you will be unavailable for testing. Your USPO may require notification of any overnight travel or absence from your residence, even within the district of supervision. Permission to travel in-state may be granted orally or in writing. Keep in mind that travel is a privilege to be earned; it is not a “right.”

Travel requests outside of Wyoming, but within the United States, must be submitted to your USPO at least one week before you want to travel.

International travel must be approved by the Court or by the U.S. Parole Commission. Approval from the country to which you wish to travel may also be required. Your request must be submitted at least six weeks in advance. Exceptions may be made for emergencies such as serious family illness or death. These situations will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and extensive communication with your USPO will be necessary.

Should travel be approved, you may be required to report to the U.S. Probation Office in the district to which you are traveling. You are required to contact your probation officer within 24 hours of your return.

If your application for travel is approved, you will be issued a written travel permit. You must keep the travel permit with you at all times during your trip. If you are stopped for any reason by a law enforcement officer, a records check may be conducted. The officer running the computerized check can determine if you are on federal supervision.

Travel may be denied if you are not in compliance with all conditions of supervision. It may also be denied if your Court-ordered financial obligations (e.g. fines, restitution, or special assessments) are not completely satisfied, or you are not current with your payment schedule. Additionally, your USPO may deny your travel request for the following reasons, although not inclusive of all reasons for denial:

  • You have pending criminal charges or are a registered sex offender;
  • Your conviction/past criminal behavior presents a travel risk or there is a third party risk;
  • Your travel plans are not verifiable;
  • Travel would interfere with Court-ordered treatment, drug testing or other conditions;
  • The district to which you wish to travel has certain restrictions which prohibit travel to their district (i.e. Nevada, South Dakota);
  • You are residing in a community corrections center or on home confinement;
  • You have recently tested positive for drugs and/or alcohol;
  • You have failed to comply with any condition imposed; i.e. submission of Monthly Supervision Reports; complete community service hours; missed treatment, etc.
