Interstate Compact for Juveniles
Washington is a signatory to the Interstate Compact for Juveniles. (See RCW 13.24.) A youth on supervision for a 'sex-related offense," a violent offense that "resulted in personal injury or death," or an offense "committed with a weapon" may not leave the state at all without a travel permit issued by a Juvenile Probation Counselor. In addition, no youth on supervision for any offense may leave the state for more than 48 hours without such a permit. (See Rule 5-102 of the Rules for the Interstate Compact for Juveniles.) A complete listing of all Interstate Compact Rules can be found on the Interstate Commission for Juveniles website.
