Getting a visa with a criminal record

Travel Forums Europe Getting a visa with a criminal record

Hello,
I have been denied a working visa for the UK because of my criminal record. I was wondering what countries I can get a working visa in with a criminal record?

I posted a month ago about Greece and was told I can get a visa for Greece because they do not ask that question on the application. The person also told me that Greece is a part of some large group of countries that don't require a criminal record check. But I can't remember what the union or group was called? Can anyone tell me what group or union Greece is in ? It was a large list of countries but I can't remember what the group or union or whatever it was was called and I can't find the email.

Thanks for your time .

Best regards,
Stefan

It all depends on which country's passport you're travelling on and it is also likely to depend on the severity of your conviction(s). You will certainly need to add these two bits of information to the thread if you want someone to answer this part of your post.

Greece is a signatory to the Schengen Agreement which may be what you're looking for.
