The question now says the conviction has to have "resulted in serious damage to property or serious harm to another person or government agency"
If the DD conviction did none of those, then answering no is perfectly correct.
Love the way property comes first in the list of things they are worried about being damaged.
I really think in this case it's likely to be the ME travel as that's connected to the passport so it's reasonable to assume they might know that. The notion that they are trawling everyone's arrest records back to 2013 is not really believable.
So no issues with granting me a 10 year visa. No questions around convictions etc just about an overstay 10 years ago!
So you overstayed 10 years ago. You didn't mention this. Did you declare it in the past or did they find out some other way?
But they've let you back in since then
It had totally slipped my mind. It was visible to them at the consulate.
It was approved at the embassy, now in processing.
But had you ever declared it in the past, or had it acknowledged in any way?
Presumably you had applied for, and had approved, ESTAs within the last 10 years, so I'm interested as to what happened.
Nice one for reporting back! And glad you got in.
No, I'd not declared it at all. Im not sure how this has happened either but I am, of course, very grateful.
Could I pick your brain on the typical processing time now? I had my interview on Friday and the interviewer confirmed it was approved, now the status says administrative processing. Heard horror stories on this
Yeah you didn't mention that! Every country takes overstaying visas seriously but...they've let you back in since.
God knows what the logic of it all is!
Im not sure but they acknowledged that was the issue but granted at time of interview anyway
I'm not entirely sure, but mine didn't take long. This was in 2013 though so.. things may have changed.
So it's been a week since my visa was approved but still the status page still says "Appointment". Does any one have similar experience?
Just cancel all flights to the states. Or bin this thread. Whichever is easier
Hello all. I got a possession charge for controlled substances last year, which culminated in a meeting with a magistrate and a fine. No previous history. I’ve been reading the forum for a year but time has gone quickly. I have an important meeting in the US coming up soon. I’ve said negative on the esta to all the silly questions. Can some kind soul from the UK with a similar staus, please confirm they’ve been to the US in 2019 with no problems? I’m starting to worry, although I’m sure it will be ok.
Do you work for US border control?
As U75 was a source that brought me great comfort, it's my duty to feedback.
Landing in US, I had to go through a computer terminal to scan my passport, take a photo and prints, then into a queue to see the immigration officer. I got asked two questions - business/vacation and where are you staying. The guy barely looked up, stamped my passport and that was it.
As everybody here has said, theres no route integration with UK police intelligence. Be confident. Make sure you have your reason for visit well prepared. Take zero risks. I even removed my lens wipes from hand luggage. And, you'll be just fine.
