Can you obtain a passoport if you have an old felony conviction?
(LaMarque TX, U.S.)
Question: My husband has a felony conviction from about 20 years ago that was resolved about 10 or 11 years ago. We are planning to go to Playa del Carmen, Mexico for my son's wedding. Will he be able to obtain a passport?
I assume that by "resolved" you mean that the felony was expunged from your husband's record.

Some countries such as Canada do not allow foreigners who have a criminal record (even a misdemeanor) to enter without special permission. I found nothing that indicates that Mexico has such a requirement.
