      Very few foreign countries allow it. The only one I know of is South Africa, where you can declare your weapon and get a permit under some circumstances.

        You're covered nationwide under HR 218, but that does NOT extend outside of the country. I know if you go over in a boat, you can have a shotgun on board and a limited number of rounds, but they frown on handguns and there is NO professional courtesy extended there reference carrying. If you absolutely, positively have to take a weapon, make it a long gun secured in a lock box attached to the plane and you do have to declare it upon arrival. If you don't, re-read LA Deps post above.

          Go to Puerto Rico or the US Virgin Islands instead, HR218/LEOSA applies there as they are US territories.
