Travel Restrictions

The probationer or supervised releasee should have satisfied all financial obligations, except in emergencies which must be documented and verified.

The probationer or supervised releasee may not have any pending non-compliance issues, including pending criminal or civil matters.

The probation officer is to check with the consulate of the country (foreign travel only) to be visited to insure there are no restrictions in place for probationer or supervised releasee travel.

The reason for travel and all corresponding information (i.e., plane tickets, passports, hotel reservations, etc.) must be provided to the supervising officer to be viewed and copied.

If travel is for emergency purposes (i.e., funeral/sick relatives) the probation officer will need to verify and document the specific information.

If jurisdiction of the probationer or supervised releasee is not in the SDNY, permission needs to be obtained from the probation office in the sentencing district for foreign travel.

The probation officer is to abide by any instructions regarding foreign travel as outlined in the Judgement and Commitment Order.
