Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
What level criminal record check is it?
Thank you. The rules on criminal records in the UK are not accepted or recognised in the US so it makes no difference on how long it may take them to be removed from your UK record. As far as the US is concerned, if you have a conviction, or ever been arrested, you should declare it. Have a look at this advice directly from their website:
We do not recommend that travelers who have been arrested, even if the arrest did not result in a criminal conviction, have a criminal record, …. attempt to travel visa free under the Visa Waiver Program. The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act does not apply to US visa law and spent convictions,regardless of when they occurred will have a bearing on a traveler’s eligibility for admission into the United States.
