    I wish i would of found this before i applied i would have just got the bloody esta !


    I got new passport as I reported my old one Lost , would that Look suspicious or USA would know that my old passport was reported lost ?

    Someone say to me that he had his passport lost, then when he tries to go USA now each time, they knew about it and did back ground checks ...not sure how they would know ?

    Are you a British passport holder?

    They won't know or care that you lost your old passport anywhere other than here.


    I have British Passport. That's what I was thought, maybe they just do random checks on people


    on this Canadian immigration website, says that Canada share Information with other countries.

    Canada eTA 2017 Problems? We Can Help!

    "Does Canada Share Information with Other Countries?
    In an effort to improve security, Canada shares information with select foreign governments
    including criminal database information as well as visa and immigration information. If you read
    the fine print of the eTA application consent and declaration, Citizenship and Immigration Canada
    states that information provided may be shared with foreign governments in accordance with subsection
    8(2) of the Canada Privacy Act."

    I would hope they share information... But as previously mentioned if you aren't a terrorist you probably aren't on their list


    True, but USA and Canada probably share info with each other about denied Esta reports see as they work close together ?


    so they only share info with USA if you are terrorist ? As I have a Denied Canadian Esta that wouldn't pop up when they scan your passport In USA ?

    Hello all. As you know, the US has signed fingerprints and DNA sharing agreements (PCSC agreements) with all visa free countries, plus some countries that are not on the waiver list yet.

    So things are now a little bit different than 5-10 years ago. They have acces to this data, in the name of fighting terrorism and serious crimes.

    My question would be to those that had their fingerprints taken by police in the past and traveled recently in the US, ticking NO in the form. How did it go at the customs ??

    Are they checking at the border the fingerprints in the home country database or they do this only in case of a criminal investigation?

    They dont have live access to this information. If they suspect you of something serious they have to go through official channels to get this information e.g interpol.

    Hey everyone

    After reading the last 45 pages of this thread, I am happy to say 'no' to having been cautioned for possession of Class A and a public order offence which occured 3 years ago, so that I can travel to America under the Visa Waiver Program. Thanks for all the information on that one!

    However, I want to travel to Canada from America on the same trip. Anyone know what the deal with Canada is and any advice on how to play it? There's also the option of travelling straight to Canada from the UK - if that changes things?

    The Canadian eTA is now even more restrictive than the American ESTA.

    The Canadians ask the question:
    ANYTHING, EVER, ANYWHERE ... whereas the Americans are actually far more reasonable:
    ... effectively only concerning themselves with issues of sedition, drugs, and violence.

    Thanks Spymaster.

    I've seen that I don't need a Canadian eTA if entering by land or sea... so would saying 'no' to get into America and then travelling to Canadia by sea (probably from Seattle) be a wise shout?

    All the best and thanks again.

    If you're going to say "no" to the Yanks you might as well say "no" to the moose shaggers and not worry about how you enter. One won't have access to more information about you that the other.

    Hi, Iam an Indian in UK on Work permit. We are planning now for a shift to US, will Be applying for a WP from US Embassy, London. The issue is I have a conviction for driving with no insurance and talking on mobile while driving, both on the same day. Went to court and was fined, Fine is duels paid. Should I declare this information in DS 160? If declared, will I have an issue with Visa approval? Need your suggestions as I am really confused as someone told me that lying is a serious offence and my convictions are not.
