    As in someone who has been charged can't travel OS?

    If so, it makes sense. People with criminal records of violence can be declined so I don't see why DV would be different?

    I am not sure what the story was either. Are you taking about a victim of DV? Or someone charged/convicted of DV?

    Many countries don't let in people with a criminal record. Maybe that's it...?

    There has been a lot of cases in recent times, like Chris Brown after he attacked Rhianna (although from memory he ended up being allowed?). Its good to hear celebrities being treated the same as 'regular folk' for a change.

    Some countries will not issue you a visa if you have been convicted of a crime. I think the US is particularly strict. For example if you have been convicted of drink driving you will not get a visa to go to the US. There is some rule about the conviction coming off your record after so many years- I'm not really sure of all the details. I assume a conviction relating to DV would also stop you getting a visa to a number of countries.

    Is that what you mean?
