What is the effect of having a community resolution for

This answer was rated:

What is the effect of having a community resolution for Cannabis possession and applying for a tier 2 visa. Will this affect one’s chances of getting a success? I understand this does not need to be disclosed anywhere as it does not count as a warning, however, will the home office take a community resolution into consideration when reviewing one’s application ? Or does it not appear on any of their background checks.
Thanks
Hello,

I've been working hard to find a 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!

Hi

I give your answer.

If community resolution is not recorded in your criminal record then it would not affect your tier 2 visa application.

I hope it will help you.

I apologise for delayed response.

community work does not appear on criminal record but when home office will check criminal record in depth then they can see community work in your record. This will affect your visa.
