Hey guys I'm going to Taiwan and China in 2 weeks from the US , I'm a little nervous because i have a arrest record for a drug felony that was dropped to a misdemeanor. I completed drug court and my case was dismissed so I was never convicted. The only conviction on my record is a minor traffic violation that I was never arrested for I just showed up in court and paid a fine.

I havent had my cased expunged yet, do you think they will be able to see my arrest record? And will they deny me entry even though my case was dismissed?

The US does not share their "normal" criminal database with anyone except Canada, so no worries.

Have fun.

Cheers,
Terry

Ok i feel a little better, I know on the arrival card it doesn't ask about criminal records but would the immigration officer ask me? I'm traveling with my grandparents so they are a little nervous that I'll be denied.

The fingerprint scanners and camera is that just for there records?
