Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
You only need to declare offences that are designated 'moral turpitude'.
The offence of obstruction is NOT such an offence.
Therefore you do not need to declare it.
Whilst obviously your visa does not guarantee entry, this is not a matter which you need to delcare
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
No - only offences involving moral turpitude.
In any event it is right to say that they do not have access to your convictions here in the UK
Hundreds of people go every day with convictions and do not declare them
No drunk in charge is not.
This is all the offences that ARE included.
Yours is not included.
Of course you (as they) are never guaranteed entry and the decision is down to the Immigration Officer
However you are not required to declare this as it is not a conviction that needs to be disclosed as per the list above
But as I said entry for you, as for everyone, is never guaranteed
But highly likely.
Am I specfically a US immigration lawyer - no.
But then none of the experts on here are.
But I have been to the USA around 50 times and indeed held visas.
And indeed the guidance available from the State Department
1) You have a visa
2) You only need to declare convictions involving moral turtpude
This is NOT included
