    Can anyone give me a definitive answer to the below please
    When you are fingerprinted at US border does it bring up your criminal record? Plus does the API let them know if any records held?

    No. Which you'd know if you'd bothered to read the thread

    I have read the thread but there is conflicting advice THATS WHY I Asked if anyone could give me a DEFINITIVE answer. You are very abrupt with people, you don't know people's situations so don't be rude.

    They can definitely tell what you have done.

    So they 100% have access to the UK PNC?

    Of course. 100 percent. With the rise of terrorism, Trump and May they put it all in place 100 days ago.

    So they put this in place on the day he assumed office? Seems unlikely

    In the USA they have a large period between election and taking office. But believe what you like.

    The general consensus is that unless you are on interpols wanted list it will be fine, however going to speak to a solicitor tomorrow who specialises in immigration

    I have and there is one saying they haven't then there are a few you included saying they do...so I need to get a correct answer as I'm taking my child to Florida next year and have a record for theft (all because of years of domestic violence) this will be the first holiday I haven't been beaten so want a definitive answer

    They won't check.

    No there isn't. There is not a single person on this thread who has a record and ticked no on the ESTA and was stopped at passport control. Not one.

    And it's pretty rude to sign up to a forum to ask the same question that has been asked hundreds of times before and been answered and then piss off again.

    Your situation is no different to anyone else's.

    You know I had 20 years of abuse and being spoken to just like you have to me. I have lived in a women's refuge with my child and thought I would never have to be spoken to like shit again...how wrong.
    You are the one who is full of shit!!!! You sign up to forums for advice you idiot, I wasn't rude in my question so go crawl under that rock you came out of.

    I'm really sorry for what you've been through and glad you've been able to get out and forge a new life for yourself and your child.

    I don't think I was being abusive or speaking to you like shit and I'm sorry I've upset you. I'm a single mum actually and have just been a member here for many years and I get really fed up of being asked the same question over and over again.

    This is a community. We support one another, we help one another out. But as in any community, it's considered really rude to barge in demanding answers and getting really angry and shouting at people.

    As I said, tick no and have a nice holiday. It sounds like you deserve it.

    And when he lands they'll whisk him off to Guantanamo :eek:

    Thank you for the apology. It has been hard and this will be our first holiday that I haven't been beaten so I want it to be perfect, my son deserves a fantastic time. It's taking all my money to save so I wanted some definite answers, I didn't feel I was being rude and barging in, I joined this particular forum to get some answers, I only retaliated when you were 'sharp' with me and I wasn't shouting at anyone, I get frightened when people are abrupt with me.
    As for the answers I appreciate them but then I've just had another message saying about them whisking me off to Guantanamo!!!!
    I know I'm asking the same question but my anxiety is so bad and just want some reassurance

    Don't think the Guantanamo was focused on me

    1927 Funnier than he thinks he is.

    The solicitor is going to tell you to be honest and apply for a visa. As soon as you do that the US authorities will know you have convictions, but a solicitor cannot advice you to lie! Up to you!

    Ignore the Guantanamo comment - there's a lot of people on a wind up here.

    1927 is right - your solicitor cannot advise you to lie. But the US authorities do not have access to British police records, honestly. If you have read the thread, you will know that I have a drug conviction and have been to the US lots and lots of times, most recently with my son and since finger printing was introduced.

    Please tick no, don't worry and have a lovely holiday.

    Thank you, I'm just going to go and keep everything crossed, it is the fingerprints system that has me chewed to bits. Im still trying to come to terms with getting an 8 months suspended sentence (all because of my ex) I paid back every penny of what I took even though it was to pay my exs bills, I really just wanted to go to prison then I was out of his reach but the police, judge and everyone helped me. I'm still really ashamed. Thank you Trashpony for putting my mind at rest. We got off to bad start but thank you

    My conviction was 2 years ago and sentence gone

    In the eyes of the US authorities aconviction is NEVER spent, but unless you tell them they won't know.

    Apply online for anESTA, make sure you tick NO To every question and I'm sure everything will be ok.

    Is Eve Gibson you're real name? - It's a bit silly to post a load of questions about lying to the Americans, if so...

    If ever a thread anywhere online needed some sort of Sticky/FAQ at the top of every page, this is the one.
