Hello Alaska:)

There have been a lot of questions like yours, here on TP.
Of course, I dont know the answers for sure, but I think unless u are a murderer, European Union countries will not give a toss about your record. If u have served your time, and your parole officer says u are free to leave the country, I dont see why there would be a problem. If somebody at the airport stops u from going, when u have got the all clear, they would have to be a complete arse.

How does a person counterfeit money? I am not going to do it or anything. I am just curious, because it seems like a difficult thing to do.

Quoting Mel.

You could start your life of crime with some real money and a color copier. Of course, you don't need to actually counterfeit any money, but simply try using it to pay for something -- that should be sufficient to get you carted away. :-) And if you go to the right stores (say, Saturn, in Berlin) you might even get carted away for trying to pay with legitimate cash (as was reported in the papers a couple weeks ago).

As it appears you are a Canadian, a good place to start with this type of question is the Canadian Consular Affairs website, which had country reports, including Entry and Exit requirements for every country. Also, it's a good idea to check with the Germany Embassy to Canada website.

Both the websites indicate that as a Canadian with a valid passport, you don't need a visa. There isn't anything on convictions, but generally they might look dimly on it. I personally think it's best to find out before hand, rather than taking your chances.

You best bet is to contact the German Embassy and ask the question. Contact information can be found on the website here.

Good luck,
Greg
