Probation Officers approve or deny travel requests based on the duties assigned to this agency by Statute, Monograph, or the Court. In the Middle District of Georgia, recurring travel should be limited, as supervision of an offender is inhibited otherwise. For each request, completed travel permits will be issued and copied to the district of travel. Non-emergency requests should be made at least 10 days in advanced.
Post Conviction Supervision
Requests for travel outside of the United States must be approved by the Court or the Parole Commission. Vacation travel exceeding 30 days must be approved by the Court. Otherwise, the Probation Officer has the authority to approve all other requests for travel outside of the district.
The Court must approve international travel.
For travel requiring Court or Parole Commission approval, it is suggested 30 days advance notice be given.
