My Partner and I are travelling to NEW YORK for a 4 night break in Feb 2011. We are flying from Heathrow.
We have always wanted to visit the City to do some sight seeing and just have a nice break. We have never been to anywhere in America before.
Few worrying questions!:
1> I know you need to apply for the Visa Waiver ESTA before you go, which I did approx 3 weeks ago when we booked. Both got accepted and I have the reference numbers. The problem is, I have no criminal record, my partner has a drink driving conviction.... I ticked 'no' to the question for him as it asks if you have ever been arrested for a crime involving a controlled substance or moral turpertude, well alcohol doesn't fall under any of those things, so I wasn't going to answer yes to a question that doesn't apply! Was I right to do that as reading that it doesn't matter what the crime was and he should apply for a full visa??
2> I am readin horrer stories about the JFK airport!! Anyone ever flown there and what was it like? What sort of questions did they ask etc?
Sorry about the questions, I am sooooo frightened we will get there and not be allowed in.... We are just a couple looking for a city break, not to cause trouble.
Please help, any advice will be great!!!!!!!!!!
