  • US Visa

    Hi all,

    In my younger days Iwas a bit of silly boy and got myself a slap on the wrist from the police in the form of a caution. At the time of receiving it, I was due to travel to the US and was about to apply for my ESTA. I was told by both the solicitor and the interviewing officer that it wouldn't affect my entry to the US and wouldn't need to be declared. As such, I didn't declare it and I had no problems at all.

    Fast forward to now and once my passport comes back from the HMPO blackhole of backlog doom, I will need to apply for a US visa.

    Question: Where do I stand with it? My understanding of US visa law (which is very very very very basic) is that as it wasn't required to be declared for a visa waiver, such as an ESTA, it will not need to be declared for a visa.

    Can anyone please clarify.

    Thanks

    Well proceed with caution with this one failure to declare it would be classed as breaching the visa. You could be in a situation where they find out and you are banged up in the states and removed from the country. The best thing is to be honest about it all.

      Best off finding out they don't like it now rather than if you end up in jail there in my mind

        It all depends on what you were arrested for and whether the US consider it to be a "crime of moral turpitude"....

            Love it, "Possessing Burglars Tools (without the intent to commit burglary)" does not involve Moral Turpitude....

              What do you define as a burglar's tool?! Surely every builder/handyman in the country would be in trouble the moment they whip out a crowbar!

                  This sounds like a line from a Carry On film

                      can you prove you don't intend to go and jimmy someone's window open and rob their tv?
