I am a Mexican national. I served a 3 year sentence in jail in USA and was then deported to Mexico (drug offense) 2016-2018 (2 years 8 months).
I currently traveled to the Dominican Republic. In transit through Panama they told me I cannot have a layover there again because of my criminal record and their policy on not allowing felons through there. They gave me a courtesy one time at their discretion permission to board the plane heading to the Dominican Republic but not to return through Panama sgain.
I am now traveling via Colombia (to get back to Mexico City) to avoid a Panama layover.
I plan to go to Greece in mid June since it’s one of the few European countries open for travel. Some help or insight on whether I will run into trouble at port of entry.
I’m very excited for this trip but would like to know if they ask about past convictions, does my passport have a flag because of my past criminal history?
It’s a bummer some countries will still punish a felon after serving his full time for mistakes.
