And there I was thinking I was the only consultant/criminal….

I wouldn’t think there is any specific text it’s just that you should put some effort trying to explain the context and that you are not a bad person, things happened when we were younger and we have moved on. Also emphasis the amazing track record you have in your current career and all the experience you are excited to bring to the country…

Hi,

Sure there is more than two of us! As Frank said, "Even a fool gets to be young once"

Thanks, yes pretty much seems the guess but reading this and other trails, it seems a frustrating position where the embassy has internal "guidelines" for this that only they know and none of the Visa consultants so only grey answers when we want a firm yes for god sake!

Ok, well ill make the application and note down the issues. I lived in the UAE for 3.5 years from 2015-2018, are they likely to need the "certificate of good conduct" or something rather as well?

Wont build anything for 2030 at this pace!

Ultimately its the discretion of those embassy staff. Good luck mate.
WindowShopper88 If you wouldn't mind sharing your cover letter details also I'd be grateful - I'm in a similar situation. DUI from almost 9 years ago. Was issued a fine and 6 month driving disqualification at the time. Clean record since and now trying to get into Saudi on a work visa. The company sponsoring me is saying it should be okay as have others get through but wondering if there is anything else I can add to application to help convince embassy staff.
Stressful times!

Hi all,I'm in a similar situation and I was looking for some help. I have a job offer in KSA and have applied for the ACRO. I know this may sound ridiculous, however was wondering if driving cases such as speeding and points show up on acro and whether you could be declined on visa. Also if you have a pending court case as I am challenging using a handheld device whilst driving as I wasn't. Would this come up on acro and affect work visa. I applied for my acro 2 weeks ago and the court later for using a handheld device only came today. Thank you

Nah i doubt it. Those offences are all civil and wont be an issue. Although i am not sure regarding the pending court case. Best to clear that asap.

This is kept on the PNC for your lifetime (however you can apply for it to get removed).

WindowShopper88 very helpful information thank you for sharing. I'm in the exact same position. Are you able to share your "context and reasoning" for cover letter please? Thanks in advance!
