Hi everyone,

Just a quick question...
Can the immigration see our previous flights in the country if they find it necesary to check ? Basically I will need to come back to Australia and want to know if they can see when and where I left the country a few months before.

Thanks !

Your Passport contains no travel information.

As to what database you might be on that has recorded your travel, who knows.

Cheers,
Terry

If it's the same passport, it's very likely that Australian immigration can see your previous history of arrival and departure dates from Australia. (With a different passport, it'd be merely quite likely.) This is assuming that Australia keeps track of this information, which I consider likely, given their eVisitor / ETA etc schemes, rather than allowing completely visa-free entry and exit. (I don't know for certain, so happy to be corrected if anyone does know.)

Hi can anyone help me? I see there have been a few questions regarding this but I can't seem to find the answers. I'm hoping to go to Orlando next year with my partner who has a criminal record from 17 years ago but there are a number of offences, one being affray. When they scan your finger prints does it bring up criminal record history? I've spent ages researching this and everything I've read seems to suggest the fingerprints are used for immigration purposes only. Does anyone know for sure what information comes up?

Same as with almost all immigration/visa questions you fail to mention the single most important piece of information: Your nationality.

You're also posting on an old thread that originated 6 years ago.

Have a read through the last couple of dozen pages here.

Good luck.

Cheers,
Terry

Yes sorry forgot to mention I'm British travelling from the UK. Also I have already read through most of the threads already which is why I asked the question again as there is no response!

As you can see it likely won't be an issue.

If you want to be completely covered then simply jump through the hoops and get a proper visa, with the convictions being so old it'll be rubber stamped and he'll be able to enter the US with a clear conscience and no worries.

Cheers,
Terry
