Here's a link to a 'Visa Application Wizard' you can go through:

http://www.usembassy.org.uk/cons_new/vi ... index.html

Near the end it states that if you've been arrested, even though there was no subsequent criminal conviction, then you need a full visa.

I'm not sure whether this just means if you've been to court and found not guilty or includes those times where people are arrested and given a caution at the police station.

Zackly, Sissy. I couldn't make any sense of it. :o

Be delighted to! Although you might find the bottle empty and its contents working its way through my digestive system! :D


Hey! Have a great Christmas and an even better NewYear (including an uneventful trip to the Bg Apple in Feb)!

Long time replying and there's a story to tell. :-?

First flight was cancelled due to heavy snow at Newark. Managed to re arrange with Netflights (superb service .... can't speak highly enough of them.) Flew out on the folllowing Sunday and I was hauled off to immigration on arrival .... cops dunkin' donuts and the like .... for about half an hour, during which I lost about two stone through sweating. Apparently, I had declared myself immune to prosecution ie diplomatic status by ticking the wrong box on the on line visa waiver jobby.

So ..... son, son's GF and the daughter were fine to travel. It was ME who ferked things up! Thankfully, they allowed us all through despite my inadequacies and we had an amazing time. Oooooooohhhhhh, New York!

BTW I can't abide gin. I have had a bottle in the I'M A SCAMMER SPAMMER!!! cupboard for since Xmas 2008. There is probably two thirds of it left intact despite what some bullshitter or other might have said about finding empty bottles of all around my house. Nuff said! :evil:
