Overseas organisations that assist people with a criminal record

Receiving a conviction overseas can cause additional complications for individuals be they UK citizens or foreign nationals.

Sentences given in one country may be treated differently in another and it can be difficult to find organisations that can offer relevant help.

We’ve just updated our important links and organisations page to provide the details of a number of organisations around the world who either work with or provide information, advice or support to people with a criminal record.

If you’ve had any personal experience of an overseas organisation that you believe would be worth adding to the list then please let us know by emailing their details to
