Hello ! I'm new here and I want to visit the man I love for this summer. He's an American citizen and I live in Europe. Everything seems to be ok I have no drug problem and had no problem with police..well Till now. Even though it doesn't seem anything too serious I'm worried that it might deny me for getting an ESTA (VISA)..The trouble ive had was because I threw my garbage out next to some abandoned building (our trash can was full) and they found my old internet bill paper..so yeah I have no idea if this could end up with my visa being denied. Ive never been arrested or had a drug issue or anything like that. And so health problems.

Please help me & ill be glad to hear your answers!

P.S. I haven't told this to my man, because he already thinks something might go wrong..

I mean Ive had a report from police for littering...Is it serious enough to get my visa denied?

yeah well I know it was a mistake to toss the garbage can in the dumpster (non allowed area) even tho the garbage has been there for ages and ages and I cant remember specifically when it happened, but I suppose its not the same as being arrested or criminal record?

My case is almost the same as smoking in non allowed area or parking car in a wrong area ..etc

Were you arrested? If not, forget it ever happened. Wipe it from your memory banks.

Have fun in the US.

Cheers,
Terry
