    Well I find conflicting answers (mainly that they don't know) but seeing as I actually know someone personally who got deported I'm looking at what people think of this? If they don't know as some say then how did they know about this person? I'd love to believe there is no way they could know unless you tell them but there are people who get caught![/QUOTE]
     
  4. was he denied entry or deported whilst in the US? one anecdote does not make a summer etc - you need to speak to him

    • if you are a Brit, have record and are not on any international watch list, entry should not be an issue

    • if you try to play the game and reveal you have any kind of record or act twattishly when you arrive, the reduce your chances of entry massively

    anything else is mostly speculation, as has been reiterated many times in this thread

    How big a drug dealer was your Dad? Would he have come to the attention of the DEA at some time? Did he maybe start off applying for a visa, fuck it up and then try the ESTA route?

    Unless you know the full background behind him being refused, then you'll just be guessing

    Thankyou for the reply. Unfortunately we don't speak now so I wouldnt know the exact details of what happened. All I know is he got to border control and was sent back the same day. I can only assume he was acting suspicious and then they delved into his records. Thanks again.

    o and thatnitu
    Hi and Thankyou for your reply. Unfortunately we don't speak now so I don't know specific details only he was taking my step bro and sis to Florida with his new wife and he was sent back the same day. It's possible he could of come to the attention of official as he had been to prison a number of times for drug dealing or it's possible he was acting a dick (Most probably) and caught the attention of them. So me and my partner SHOULD be absolutley fine you think?

    Just do the ESTA. Don't think about visa's and don't admit to anything.

    Do you feel your crimes were REALLY bad?
    If not you can fill out the ESTA with a clear conscience.

    However if you do feel that they were pretty bad, then a lie on top will mean nothing to you anyway. :) Have a nice holiday

    ABH (aggravated assault) clearly comes under the term moral turpitude, any crime that falls outside the accepted standard of the community, is considered moral turpitude.

    I'm not sure what you "read up on" but you do need a visa, that visa may be granted on arrival but you need one. An ESTA just determines the eligibility of a person to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program, it gives you no power of entry, that is only granted on arrival.
    Your questions have been answered many times on this thread. The USA have no access to the UK police nation computer, if you don't tell them they will not know.

    ABH is not aggravated assault!

    Really, maybe you should look up the law.

    ABH is a statutory offence of aggravated assault and was created by section 47 of the Offences Against the Person Act 1861 & Criminal Justice Act 1988

    Say someone was arrested for rape in January this year; the case was dropped and was nfa'd would the person be able to enter USA on an esta?

    The same answer applies to ^^^ that too.

    Which is what? So you're saying they'll be allowed in with no problems?

    What about with a caution with theft as that comes under the moral turpitude?

    But rape is? It was only an arrest and the person got nfa'd but the caution for theft is there?

  20. if you are going as a question on this thread that hasn't already been answered, best make up a bogus name to register before you start revealing too many details - this is public y'know.

    *They cannot access the UK Copper database yet
    *Unless you are on an international terror list or have previous in the USA, then you are unlikely to be in their records
    *If you declare a conviction and do not have thousands to spend on a lawyer, it is likely you will be rejected and remain in their record book going forward
    *Read the thread before asking another variation of questions already asked.....
    *Sorted

    Fully understood. Does the same apply to other countries such as Australia?

    What would your assumption be?

    A safe assumption is that Australia and other countries aren't part of the US, so its outside the province of this thread.

    The advice remains the same as ever: admit to nothing and you'll probably be fine unless you look extra shifty on entry or do something to attract attention to yourself.
