You no longer need a visa for a stay less than a certain period

Didnt think a caution was put on a record as such - only convictions that affect US Visas?

Speeding on your license though... different kettle of fish. That will be at least 2 years in the bay of pigs for you! Hope you've never been suspended from HUKD - or that really will be it!!!!! :w00t:

Hehe..... Nah, speeding or ever worse, a parking ticket are irrelivant.

I had to provide a CRB check £10, Visa application £60, visa photo £6, enquiry line £1.50 per minute, travel to London £30 waited 5 hours and was refused a visa.

Could have risked it but if refused entry then the carrier has to bring you back and recieves a huge fine.

Even if you were arrested for something and weren't charged you have to declare it.
Anyway, regardless of that, caution is a conviction

i got confuesed its not a speeding one its a LC20,is it worth me declaring this if i apply for the visa?also what steps do i need to take?thanks

Applying for a Visa is unlikely to lead to you getting into the USA.

My "friends" with convictions waltz through.

Slightly different visa problem. Nephew (19) had drink drive conviction. He told the company who he was going with. Even though they deal with visas every day, they did not seem to know that when you have a conviction, you have to apply at least 3 months in advance of travel. Ended up, no time left and could not go. Apparently, for that conviction he would have got a visa.

Cost him £250 for nothing. The system is against you if you are honest. Seems worth saying nothing and taking a chance IMO

Exactly what I believe. Find a really cheap package deal and take the risk.

hi went 2 america last year have got shoplifting offence on record, but when filling visa in on plane it only asks if u have been locked up in the past 2 years. or been in prison for over 5 years so didnt even have to declare my record. an all the sleepless nights b4 my hol lol
good luck
#17
On a short stay or package holiday, you don't need to apply for visa in advance. You fill out a form on the flight, where you declare whatever it asks.

My nephew was going to UA for 3 months Camp America student. He could not go because you have to apply for a Visa many more months in advance. Don't think it would be worth trying to hide it if going for a proper Visa interview.

It is a total rip off money making scam, 90p per minute Visa info line. Disgusting

You do if you don't qualify for the visa waiver scheme.
#19
Precisly, then you need to apply at least 6 months before travel to get an appt in time. He applied 3 months advance and could not get an appt AND you pay 90p per min to keep trying to get appts. He lives in London, they suggested he could fly to the Belfast Visa office, he would have done but they had no appts either

You don't fill in a Visa form on the plane, it's a visa waiver form (approved travel authorisation). This allows you into the country for 90 days without a visa. From next January, you need to apply for a visa waiver before you travel to the US, which then lasts for 2 years (still only allowing visits of up to 90 days each) but no need to fill in the visa waiver form each time you go.

The ESTA website shows the list of questions you need to answer to get a visa waiver, one is 'have you ever been arrested or convicted for an offence or crime involving moral turpitude - Such offenses generally involve conduct which is inherently base, vile, or depraved and contrary to the accepted rules of morality and the duties owed to persons or society in general. There are factors, such as the age of the offender or the date of the offense, that may affect whether an offense will be considered a crime involving moral turpitude for purposes of the Immigration and Nationality Act.'

For trips lasting up to 6 months at a time, you need a B2 visa, from the US Embassy in London or Belfast. But you have to prove to them that you intend to return home at the end of the six months (confirmation of current employment, rental agreement, mortgage details, funds available for return flight, school committments, etc). Some people apply for a B2 visa, with no intention of returning home.

If you buy a business whilst on a B2 visa, you can then upgrade to an E2 visa which is renewable every 2 years, but you cannot leave the US whilst holding an E2 visa as you may not be allowed back in.

If you need a professional visa/green card (as I do) the current backlog is 5 years, although congress will be looking at lifting the current restrictions to clear the backlog early next year. Fingers crossed!

Hope that helps.

Nephew was going to be there slightly longer than 3 months. Had been arrested and convicted of drink driving. Read all the stuff you stated about the moral turpitude. Don't think DDriving would come under that but only they can decide this, not you. The interptretation of moral turpitude is not clear. They don't list types of convictions that would not need to apply. You just have to go for the visa and let them decide.....but then you can't get an appt because you have declared a conviction and have to be dealt with by a different visa officer, hence the longer wait for an appt....!

Good luck with your application

Thank you.
My Brother & his family moved there a year ago, and went through the B2/E2 route as he bought a business. He has no formal qualifications, so it was the only way he could get to live there. He'll get permanent residency in 5 years, as his business is doing well. He's very happy there. I've just been to visit for 2 weeks (my 4th visit to Florida), and decided to try and move there myself.

5 year backlog for visa's for nurses/midwives, yet they've predicted a 1 million deficit of nurses in the US by 2010! Hopefully they'll clear the backlog then we can go. Already looked at houses/schools/jobs/businesses. Shame it all takes so long.
