Hi Guys, I have got myself in a right state over this. I am a UK citizen & I have a conviction for benefit fraud 5 years ago, I did not go to prison but got a suspended sentence and community service. I am due to go to New York with my family for my Sons 18th Birthday in November & did not give this a second thought when booked until I went onto ESTA's website. I now feel sick to my stomach that I may have to tell my Son we can not go and cancel the holiday. If I have to apply for a special visa from London Embassy how much will this all cost and what are the odds of me being successful. Thank you all in advance for help and thank you for your time x.
