just how strict is America these days? It's been 9 years since I came. I want to make the trip but have assault on my record ( stopping a bully get to my friend).

Do I declare this and risk getting denied or do I fill out a green card and risk it.

Generally anything with a criminal conviction is a instant 'do not pass' when it comes to getting into Canada. I've heard of a few hit/miss cases where people have made it through but seems to depend on history, and how our tin soldier border guard is feeling that day...

you will be able to preapply for a visa if you are worried, i know of people that have been turned back, but the guys i know that have preapplied have got in,

and you will have to apply for an ESTA before you leave,

Are you Mexican or Cuban?

Based on his location in his bio, he is in Great Britain and will be trying to get into USA for MXON.

Not sure why people are mentioning Canada?

Indeed I am surprised why you would need to apply for a VISA. Maybe since the Brexit ?

For all Schengen space and I think the UK it is just the ESTA. You just declare you are travelling (and the address where you are staying).

I still managed to get refused the ESTA whereas I had an interview with the CFO of ConEdison. blink w00t laughing

Dunno if you are eligible for an ESTA but if you are just fill it out online with all correct info and you'll have an answer really quickly if you'll be able to enter USA or not. Worked for me with dutch nationality.

If you don’t need to provide any supporting paperwork then deny it, easier.. they aren’t going to look you up at the airport.

Not intending to get political here but if I was a foreigner planning on travel to the USA...I'd have to have second thoughts because of the constantly changing policies. What a mess.

You can get into Mexico I bet. And from there it’s wide open spaces to get up north. Easy Pickens.

We went in 16... had to get an esta... some of us had to go to U.S embassy as had convictions for drugs etc... we all were aloud in though... I would not risk it.. the people at the gate when u get off the plane ante super diligent.. ask all sort of questions... if you’re serious , get an esta buddy

Doubt you’ll even get on the plane without an an ESTA.

A British friend of mine overstayed his permitted 6 months on a US trip. He went back to the UK after about 8 months. Nothing was said. However next time he went back to America they pulled him at US immigration, strip-searched him and threw him in jail. He can never go back.

They don’t fuck around over there.
