Odd someone just came to me with that concern. I researched it and all i found was that IF YOU HAVE A CRIMINAL RECORD, YOU may not get an entrance VISA or a green card or citizenship.
I found nothing to suggest that a criminal conviction, arbitrarily disqualifies one from applying for or receiving a PASSPORT.
