My partner has a conviction for Canabis from 4 years ago which he was fined for and he has 3 other minor driving convictions! We want to go to USA in July and he is in the process of arranging The interview! Can someone tell me
What his chances are of getting the visa ? He has a job and a mortgage etc

Also does it matter what the amount of Canabis was?

I appreciate any advice thanks 😊

If it's 1 conviction for weed and under 30 grams it doesn't make him inadmissable. If he was dealing it will... Getting a conviction for cannabis possession is very rare, so I assume he was either a dick to the police it was caught with a significant amount.

Yes it was about 130 grams but still just convicted of possesion 😩

Then yes, he'll need a visa. Please tell us the outcomes.

He is in the process of getting an appointment for an interview but does anyone know what his chances are of actually being granted a visa? I will let you know the outcome.
