My Husband and I would like to take our 2 children on a 2 week Holiday to America in 2012.
We are both worried that the drugs conviction we recieved 12 years ago is going to affect our application for a visa to visit America.
We were both arrested 12 1/2 years ago for the posession of.... 3 grammes of amphetamine and 15 extacy tablets. We were both sent to prison for possesion with intent to supply, 6 months after we were arrested. I was given a 2 month prison sentence and my Husband was given a 6 month prison sentence.
This all happened a very long time ago when we were both very young and very stupid, and we both regret what happened very much.
I`m aware that we would both have to visit the American Embassy in London to be interviewed, but we are both very worried of being denied a visa just because of one stupid mistake that was made such a long time ago.
Neither of us have been introuble with the police since this incident happened more than 12 years ago.
So, does anyone think that there is any chance that we would be accepetd for a visa ? or, is there a very high chance that we would be refused because of the nature of the conviction ?
Thank you :o)
