Hi there

I want to visit the States, but I have a cloud on my character... about 25 years ago
I got in trouble with the law . This resulted in a fine in lieu of 60 days
imprisonment. Since that time I have received no further convictions.

I have applied for a visa stating all this , could anyone one tell me what is the
likelihood of the application being accepted ?

What appeal channels do I have open to me in the event of the application being
turned down ?

Thank-you

What was the offence? (Or, at least what sort of thing?)

Probably if it's not drug-related or terribly violent, I suspect you might be
okay. I haven't seen many success/failure reports mentioned here though, so I'm
far from sure.

I think it is possible to appeal a visa refusal; I don't know the details, though,
and with this sort of thing a lot is really is subject to the discretion of the
consular officials.

Shelley, Mark

Thank-you very much for responding , although I have not been refused yet. It was a
period of my life that I wish tot disassociate myself with and even bringing it up is
painful for me. I do however want to get to the States I have written a letter to the
Consulate explaining all this and the fact that I was in the States in March , but
did'nt realise that I had to own up to a past conviction. Especially as you don't
have to in this country.

I hope they will take a lenient view , but have heard so many stories... am concerned

thanks for your kind words...
