Trump could face travel restrictions in some countries following his conviction in New York

Former President Donald Trump, whose administration has imposed multiple versions of a travel ban on people coming from Muslim-majority countries, could now face restrictions on his own international travel following his felony conviction Thursday in New York.

This is where Trump is confronted no specific travel restrictions by Judge Juan Merchan, who presided over the 'hush money' criminal trial in New York, in which the former president was found guilty of 34 crimes. His sentencing will take place on July 11, four days before the Republican National Convention, which will formalize his nomination as president. Trump, who is in the middle of a presidential campaign and has done just that three other criminal cases pending, has not announced any international travel plans.

The US does not allow foreigners with a felony conviction to enter the country, and a number of other countries do not either. Allies including Britain and Australia have strict restrictions on traveling there as a convicted criminal, according to the European Travel Information and Authorization System. Canada, which will hold the G7 summit of world leaders in 2025, also imposes strict requirements on visitors with a criminal past. And criminals are not allowed to enter China.

But it is possible that international leaders could make exceptions for Trump if he becomes president again. Former President George W. Bush had to apply for a special waiver to enter Canada for an official state visit because he had pleaded guilty decades earlier to a 1976 drunk driving charge. And that was a misdemeanor, not a misdemeanor.

Trump plans to extend and revise travel restrictions to the US if he becomes president again. Last year he said he would return a travel ban “even bigger than before”, referring to his government's limits on travelers from various countries that have a largely Muslim population.

The Supreme Court ultimately maintained a version of his travel ban, 5-4, from 2018. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the majority opinion that presidents have substantial power to regulate immigration. “The only requirement,” Roberts wrote, is that the entry of the covered aliens would be “adverse to the interests of the United States.” The President has undoubtedly met that demand here.” He also noted that Trump ordered a review of each country's compliance with the risk assessment baseline and then released the findings.

When talking about the spike in the number of undocumented migrants crossing the US-Mexico border, the former president also regularly portrays them as “criminals.”

“So we're driving criminals out of our country, and we're taking them out in record numbers, and those are the people we're going after.” the former president said near the start of his term during a 2017 interview with the Associated Press.

As he awaits sentencing in the 'hush money' case, Trump insists he did nothing wrong.

“I am willing to do whatever I have to do to save our country and our Constitution. I do not care,” he said in remarks Friday at Trump Tower.
