I am looking at travelling to USA, later in the year. Do I need to mention a very minor cannabis fine of $150 that occurred 33 year ago?L.
Nothing , googling websites, hey all seem to say you need to mention prior conviction to enter USA.
Do I need to mention a very minor cannabis fine of $150 that occurred 33 year ago? Yes.They make you fill out a form when they are finger printing you and eye scanning you, and one of the questions is whether you have previously been arrested or had prior convictions.
I did my law degree at the University of Queensland
