This was even when my boarding pass was "randomly selected" for SSSS (Secondary Security Screening Selection). A bit scary but nothing more than a quick search, bag rummage and passport scan.

    Just thought I'd add my bit to the thread. Now to have a great few days in New York!
    That's great news and encouraging for others who maybe nervous about a trip to the US!
    Enjoy New York! One of my favourite cities! 👍

    Hi All,

    I have been to the USA many many times, but this year was caught drink driving. I have many friends in the US so visit regularly. The previous poster advised they entered the USA on an ESTA to JFK with no probs...my question is - Did the poster say yes or no on the ESTA form?

    Also the info on the CBP website regarding the DUI entry is clear one is fine two is not, but on that one do you declare it?

    thanks!!

    This has been discussed earlier in the thread. Convictions are asked about, but in a limited way.
    Question 2 in your quote covers it;

    2) HAVE YOU EVER BEEN ARRESTED OR CONVICTED FOR A CRIME THAT RESULTED IN SERIOUS DAMAGE TO PROPERTY, OR SERIOUS HARM TO ANOTHER PERSON OR GOVERNMENT AUTHORITY?

    Apply that question to your drink drive conviction. Was there serious injury to someone or serious damage to property? If no, you can quite happily put no on the form and obtain the ESTA entry. If yes, then you should apply for a visa.

    HI
    The U.S. does not deny entry to persons with a "Driving under the Influence" (DUI) conviction, although if there are multiple convictions for this and or other misdemeanors, you could be denied entry.
    Generally, any convictions for drug possession can result in denial of entry. If the conviction was long ago, you might contact the U.S. Embassy, Office of Consular Affairs in your country to obtain a waiver. Other misdemeanors may result in denial if they were recent

    Hi
    Canada may not allow persons with DUI (driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol) convictions to enter their country. A Canadian immigration officer will decide if you can enter Canada when you apply for a visa, an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), or upon your arrival at a port of entry.
    A single DUI conviction is not grounds to deny entry into the U.S. However, multiple DUI convictions or a DUI conviction in combination with other misdemeanor offenses can make a person inadmissible and require a waiver prior to entering the United States.

    Question Re: Getting a USA visa (travelling to america with a drink driving conviction)

    I was refused an ESTA last year just before I was about to travel and had no idea why.
    I have a drink/driving conviction from 4 years ago. Was over the limit the next morning. Nobody else involved, no accident. 12 month ban (reduced to 9 months) and minimal fine.
    I got a Redress control number. I have just been refused an ESTA again and told that I must obtain a non-immigrant visa.
    What I would like advice on, as I can't find it on here, is whether I need an ACRO with police record for the VISA interview.
    I have no other convictions, just worrying about how long it will take to get one if I make my appointment for the interview in London now.

    Thank you in advance. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I have found this forum really helpful and reassuring.

    I only have limited experience on this, but yes, you would need to get an ACRO before the interview at the US embassy.
    My experience was that this took 3 weeks.
    If your conviction is now over 5 years old, then I would not expect them to require you to have a medical.

    My conviction is only 4 years old. I'll book my appointment at the embassy for 3 weeks and hope the ACRO arrives in time.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply. Much appreciated

    Finally, I received my visa this time after 2 rejections because of drink driving. I am not a British citizen so, had to tick yes for the conviction question. However, I now feel that I shouldnt have ticked yes because UK police dont share DD conviction information to the US embassy. The only thing one should keep in mind is, if you tick yes and you apply for a visa within a year of conviction, you wont get visa by any means. I dint know this before and I applied twice within a year and I was rejected both of the times. So, my visa story is as follows. For the first 2 times, I applied for a business visa for a conference and I was rejected both the times, as mentioned above. So, this time I applied for a tourist visa and it was more than a year after my conviction. I had my visa interview in the first week of March and after general questions, they asked me about DD conviction, as expected. She clearly said that visa applied within a year of conviction is strict no and now that I crossed a year, I would be sent to medical and I was sent there. The medical appointment I got was after 5 days of my visa appointment. The doctor was polite and made me feel comfortable and he also said that now that I crossed a year, I have high probablity of getting the visa. I received an email from embassy in the fourth week of March that I needed to send my passport to them. That was a sigh of relief for me but I had a fear about the time they would need for processing that and send it back. After 10 days or so, I received an email saying that passport sent to the courier service and ready to collect. Thats it, I was on cloud nine after reading that email and the next day went there to collect and got my visa. But sadly they only gave me 1 year of visa. Nevertheless, something is better than nothing. And I am going to US this August. Yahooooo
    Hi Rahul,

    It is great news that you finally got granted a visa!

    You mention that they asked about your DD conviction, can you elaborate on that please. Did they ask why, how etc?

    Also, were you able to take your mobile phone into the building, as some had the chance to get their medical on the same day as their appointment.

    I look forward to hear from you.

    Thanks
