International Travel Form

The Supplemental Guidelines for Sex Offender Registration and Notification require sex offenders to report their international travel 21 days prior to departing the United States. The U.S. Marshals Service's National Sex Offender Targeting Center (NSOTC), with the assistance of the SMART Office and INTERPOL, created the Notification of International Travel of Sex Offender form. This fillable PDF enables a seamless transfer of information from a jurisdiction's registry to the respective destination country.

The most recent version of this form is on the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) Exchange Portal. The Institute for Intergovernmental Research, which developed and maintains the portal, is now working on a process for international travel notification that is similar to the Offender Relocation Tasks feature used for interjurisdictional travel. In addition, the form has been distributed to State, territory, and tribal sex offender registry officials and has been posted on INTERPOL’s RissLEADS server (a secure, electronic bulletin board) and on the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Law Enforcement Online (LEO) Special Interest Group (SIG) portal under INTERPOLUS.

An "email" button on the form makes it easy for users to submit the form directly to NSOTC. The email subject line should read "Sex Offender Travel Notification" to speed up processing. NSOTC will process the information and submit it to INTERPOL.

Upon receipt of the form, INTERPOL will notify the destination country. Unlike other notices, this is for informational purposes only and does not require action on behalf of the receiving country.

This streamlined form will make it easier for registration agencies to forward the required information in a timely manner, in accordance with the terms of the supplemental guidelines. If you have any questions, please contact NSOTC at 202–616–1600 or IOD.NSOTC@usdoj.gov.
