    Am I the only person who feels uneasy about the number of people who make their first post on this thread. And never post again?

    Call me paranoid, but as this thread pops up when you google the right terms is it not possible that US authorities are monitoring the thread? Just a thought!

    I'm not up with technology, but can they trace IP addresses from posts, or compel Ed to give them up?

    Just thinking out loud.

    Not that I have to worry. But some users may.

    Anyone know what info the automated passport control (APC) knows? I have travelled to the states before but haven't used the APC..

    Is it safer to wait and go with border security or is APC ok?

    Just back from USA trip. Glad I found this thread before traveling. I have 8 convictions. 2 prison sentences. '
    Now 'clean'. Ticked 'no' to ESTA questions. No problem getting in. My advice, go for it.

    It just has the details held by US immigration.

    You scan your passport, have your photo taken and answer some question on an touch screen. The questions are related to your personal details and your flight information. You will then get a printout from the machine and go and speak to a boarder control officer and off you go.

    It is there to make life easier for people who frequently travel to the USA, I always use it and have never had a problem.

    Firstly thank you all for your info. Secondly I have 2 x possession (1x class b cannabis. 1x class c diazepam- took the wrap for my mrs)

    Was going to apply for a visa but after reading this thread I'm going to click no and crack on. The only reply I would need is if anyone thinks I'm making a mistake.

    Thanks again.

    Hi guys, if applying for a student visa to the US, if I say I have no previous arrest/convictions on the online application, will I still be required to present an ACRO regardless, and are they likely to want to look into my criminal history as it is not a holiday(I'm sorry if this type of question has been answered, however I've gone through at least 10 pages on the thread and its mainly holiday travel)

    So after 2 years of sweating about it, I visited Vegas :thumbs: I have a caution for Affray so i think i answered correctly on the ESTA (no to everything).

    CPB asked me 3 questions: where i was staying, how much i had and who i was visiting with. That's it, he stamped my passport and i was on my way...

    Hi all

    After booking a holiday and not knowing about this whole ESTA business I have been following this thread almost every day for 9 months.

    It definitely gave me the reassurance I needed and yesterday I arrived in New York!

    I have the say CPB are terrifying. Well the woman we had was anyway. Very stern and scary. Didn't ask us a single question, just stamped and sent us through. Not at all welcoming! I suppose they have a job to do but was a shock, iv only ever been to Europe in the past so totally different. They can't see anything, there are clearly no shared records - though I'm sure there will be one day!!
