My conviction was October 8th banned fo20months which will be reduced to 15 months after awareness course.
Yes I have a ESTA
Ok. On the ESTA you will have been asked have you ever been arrested or convicted etc? You must have answered no to get the ESTA.The US and UK do not share criminal convictions so the US wont know about the drink driving.So unless you tell them they will NOT know about it.Thousands of people every year travel to the USA with minor convictions without an issue. But they will only know about it, if you tell themCan I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
