Traveling to Solicit Minors

Solicitation of a minor is a serious crime on its own. If an individual travels across state lines or international boundaries to solicit a minor, the charges and penalties significantly increase. Traveling to solicit a minor, also referred to as "sex tourism," is a federal crime that carries a 20-year minimum mandatory prison sentence.

Police typically target international travelers to areas where prostitution is common, such as Southeast Asia or Eastern Europe,. However, a domestic traveler in the U.S. can also be charged with sex tourism.
