Traveling to the USA with a conviction

Travel Forums North America Traveling to the USA with a conviction

I am a New Zealand citizen and am wanting to go the USA for a few days. However, I have two minor convictions that I received in Australia a few years ago. They were drink driving - low range and obstruction.
I have a New Zealand passport and will be leaving from New Zealand.

Will this prevent me from entering the USA and would they be able to even see these convictions if I lied on the Visa entry?
