I am an American citizen and I want to plan a trip to visit my girlfriend in Singapore for a week and then take a train to Thailand for a week. My girlfriend has been going to school in India for three months already and will be there for another six months. So I really really want to take the trip to see her because I miss her so much. She suggested that we meet in Singapore.
I should be able to meet all of the entry requirements for Singapore and Thailand, but I am concerned because I was convicted of a felony in the United States back when I was still a teenager. That has been over ten years ago and it was relatively minor offense, but still a felony none the less.
I have a U.S. passport and I will have adequate funds, and forwarding tickets, but I really hope that a stupid criminal offense from over ten years ago when I was a teenager will not keep me from being able to travel to these countries at all.
Can anyone tell me if this will be a problem when I try to enter these countries? I keep searching and searching on the internet and I can't find any solid answers to these questions. I even called a few of Singapore's American consulate offices and they all said that they did not think I would have a problem if I have a U.S, passport, but they were not really sure.
Thank You for reading and I really hope someone can help give me some answers.
