It might seem like celebrities get special treatment wherever they go. But all the money and fame in the world means nothing when an entire country decides they aren’t welcome.

Stars like Richard Gere, Harrison Ford, Bjork, and Jon Bon Jovi are all too familiar with how easy it is to get banned from China. All you have to do is publicly support Tibetan independence or the Dalai Lama. Canada doesn’t take kindly to DUIs which means that a good chunk of Hollywood elite, including 50 Cent, Michelle Rodriguez, and even native son Keanu Reeves are technically forbidden from crossing into The Great White North.

The actors and musicians on this list all found themselves eighty-sixed from their destinations for a variety of reasons. Often, the ban is politically motivated, particularly in nations that are ruled by strict religious law. Sometimes, the star’s over-the-top behavior is to blame. Occasionally, the celebrity in question has been convicted of a crime that the country’s government can’t abide. As far as border control is concerned, a platinum record or hit movie does not trump a police record.

Whatever the reason, it has usually resulted in the star having to cancel public appearances and change their travel plans posthaste.

Here are 18 Stars Who Are Banned From Entering Other Countries.
