Re: DUI in 2004, Am I inadmissable to the US?

A solution so simple it's brilliant.

I'm just a little baffled, it took me 8 months to clear my past with Canada, now I just have to fill in an ESTA form?

Re: Sweet. My Work want to offer me a job. Now what?

No but I haven't.

PMM then goes on to say:

"If s/he doesn't and you apply for an extension of the work permit without it, you could continue working until you receive a decision"
