Hello and welcome to Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help with your question today.
When are you planning to take this trip?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I have booked a flight to Lima in South America via New York

on September 2nd. 2013. My conviction expires in June. I do not

want the ordeal of a B2 visa. I would like to know what information

the USA has on me. And what are the odds that it will be rejected.

I hope to be flying there with a friend. This is a violation of my human

rights. As I was not aware of this before I bought the ticket. I have a

State Pension and cannot afford any Legal action. I will be saying no

to all the questions as my conviction has expired.September is a long

time to wait for an answer.

I've asked customer services to refer you to a US lawyer.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Referring me to a US lawyer has not answered my question, this will be ok if this does not involve extra cost.

Hello,
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!

Thank you for your efforts, I have been to the Citizens Advice Bureau,
and have decided to apply using the ESTA application form and

await the results, as I can apply any time at my Convenience. And

will plan any travels abroad on the response. I do not wish to prolong the agony, nor the trouble of applying for a B2 Visa and awaiting the results.

I am happy with this.

Do not continue your search, and cancel this question.

Kind regards

Philip
