Hey guys,

So as it turns out i need some information about the ESTA

I've applied and been accepted however a couple of weeks ago i was arrested for a traffic offence.
I will have court next week where i will plead guilty and received a measly 500 dollar fine.

NOW...

my question is, will this void my ESTA? it doesn't mention anything about traffic convictions when applying online.

i would also like to note that i have a clean record, no other convictions.

will my ESTA be forfeit?

Having a small traffic violation in your own country should not affect anything
with your ESTA.

You could refer to the website uscis.gov just to be sure, but we wouldnt
worry about it too much if we were you. Your ESTA will not be forfeit.
