Please add some other countries if you can... it's unbelievable that there are so little information about this out there.
A New Zealander I knew claimed this was a true story, flying NZ-OZ and he's at immigration:
Official: Do you have a criminal record? Kiwi: Do you still need one?
Wonder if this important topic belongs under this category; it makes no reference to documents or papers to be taken on travel. Would suggest it be moved to "Understand". Will defer to judgement of its author. Regards Hennejohn 16:14, 7 September 2012 (EDT)
I figure it was a travel topic because it does affect your ability to travel to the said country. I am not sure any further documentation is necessary with this as each country's rules are different. With UK the official has to prove that your criminal record is unspent, if they can't then they have to declare it spent and therefore it cannot be used against you to keep you out of the UK. Other countries like US/Canada is much more onerous when it comes to anyone with any criminal records.
