My son is American and was on a tourist visa in Sweden. While there, he was arrested and jailed for getting into a heated argument in public with his girlfriend. After serving two months of his 4 month sentence, he was deported from the country. He was escorted from the prison to the airport and into his plane back to the US. They flew all the way to San Francisco with him, where they checked him through customs and then released him.
The deportation was not a part of the original sentence. He says that he told them hw was missing his flight home, it was non-refundable and he would not have any money to get a new flight when he got out. The authorities at the jail told him he was banned from travelling to Sweden for three years. When he left, they gave him a piece of paper that said he was being expelled because he wouldn't be able to support himself when he was released.
Can he still travel to Denmark or does the ban affect all EU Schengen countries? Is there any way to find out if he's on this list that everyone is talking about? He wants to travel there soon, but doesn't want to spend the money and then get turned around at the airport. Is there anyway to check on this before he buys his ticket?
