Getting a US Visa With A Criminal Record
The following information is brought to you by
If you have a criminal record, getting an ESTA or tourist visa to enter the USA may be more difficult. That’s not to say it will be impossible: you can often still get a visa even with a criminal record, depending on the conviction.
The type of conviction matters
Whether you are granted a visa or not often depends on the details of your arrest or conviction. There are are some types of convictions that will not typically lead to a denial of entry.
If you have a criminal record for drink driving, for example, this may not prevent you getting a visa. This is the same with crimes like breaking and entering, and simple assault.
However, if you have multiple convictions for these types of offences, this may well be grounds for refusal.
Drug convictions are likely to lead to you being denied entry to the USA, as are crimes of ‘moral turpitude’ ( These include serious crimes like murder, rape, forgery and manslaughter
Apply for a tourist visa rather than an ESTA
It is recommended to apply for a tourist visa rather than an ESTA if you have a criminal record or even if you have been arrested but do not have a conviction.
If you have a conviction dating back many years, you still need to declare it. However, you may be able to get a waiver from the U.S. Embassy.
Gathering relevant documents
During your interview, you will need to show records of your arrest or conviction. If you were arrested or received a conviction in the UK, you will need to show an ACPO Police Certificate, which you can get from the ACPO website ( It must be issued within six months of your interview.

Everglades National Park - The Anhinga Trail and Alligators Video (Everglades, Florida)
We decided to try and see some alligators (as we were in Florida afterall!), so it seemed the best place to visit was The Everglades and The Anhinga Trail seemed to have a good rep online! Needless to say, we saw a fair few gators on the way! They give you free vulture car-protecting tarps in the parking lot lol! Apparently they love rubber! Damn vultures, they'd eat anything!
The Everglades (or Pa-hay-okee) is a natural region of tropical wetlands in the southern portion of the U.S. state of Florida, comprising the southern half of a large drainage basin and part of the neotropic ecozone. The system begins near Orlando with the Kissimmee River, which discharges into the vast but shallow Lake Okeechobee. Water leaving the lake in the wet season forms a slow-moving river 60 miles (97 km) wide and over 100 miles (160 km) long, flowing southward across a limestone shelf to Florida Bay at the southern end of the state. The Everglades experience a wide range of weather patterns, from frequent flooding in the wet season to drought in the dry season. Writer Marjory Stoneman Douglas popularized the term River of Grass to describe the sawgrass marshes, part of a complex system of interdependent ecosystems that include cypress swamps, the estuarine mangrove forests of the Ten Thousand Islands, tropical hardwood hammocks, pine rockland, and the marine environment of Florida Bay.
Human habitation in the southern portion of the Florida peninsula dates to 15,000 years ago. Before European colonization, the region was dominated by the native Calusa and Tequesta tribes. With Spanish colonization, both tribes declined gradually during the following two centuries. The Seminole formed from mostly Creek people who had been warring to the North; they assimilated other peoples and created a new culture. After being forced from northern Florida into the Everglades during the Seminole Wars of the early 19th century, they adapted to the region and were able to resist removal by the United States Army.
Migrants to the region who wanted to develop plantations first proposed draining the Everglades in 1848, but no work of this type was attempted until 1882. Canals were constructed throughout the first half of the 20th century, and spurred the South Florida economy, prompting land development. In 1947, Congress formed the Central and Southern Florida Flood Control Project, which built 1,400 miles (2,300 km) of canals, levees, and water control devices. The Miami metropolitan area grew substantially at this time and Everglades water was diverted to cities. Portions of the Everglades were transformed into farmland, where the primary crop was sugarcane. Approximately 50 percent of the original Everglades has been developed as agricultural or urban areas.
Following this period of rapid development and environmental degradation, the ecosystem began to receive notable attention from conservation groups in the 1970s. Internationally, UNESCO and the Ramsar Convention designated the Everglades a Wetland Area of Global Importance. The construction of a large airport 6 miles (9.7 km) north of Everglades National Park was blocked when an environmental study found that it would severely damage the South Florida ecosystem. With heightened awareness and appreciation of the region, restoration began in the 1980s with the removal of a canal that had straightened the Kissimmee River. However, development and sustainability concerns have remained pertinent in the region. The deterioration of the Everglades, including poor water quality in Lake Okeechobee, was linked to the diminishing quality of life in South Florida's urban areas. In 2000 the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan was approved by Congress to combat these problems. To date, it is the most expensive and comprehensive environmental restoration attempt in history, but its implementation has faced political complications.
