I have an Obstruction of Highway charge on my record. I applied for my Visa and now they are asking questions. Is that just protocol or do they really deny a visa for traffic violations?

Which visa? Work & Holiday? I doubt they'd deny it, but I assume they asked a question during the application process where you stated that you had a conviction or somesuch, and then it doesn't seem too outlandish to me that they ask followup questions, particularly if (as I assume is the case here) the visa application process doesn't actually ask for detailed information about the charge.

Hi Kim, when will you be getting to Australia? I'm going on my own so if your in the same situation it would be great to be able to meet up etc if we are in the same place?

Cheers
