What questions will i have to answer at US consulate visa interview?
You will need to take with you a certified copy of the court disposition that shows the charges and includes the police report.
Do I have to disclose the charge?
Absolutely, you have to answer YES to the question:
Have you ever been arrested or convicted for any
offense or crime, even though subject of a
pardon, amnesty, or other similar action?
What shows up on police check for US visa?
The US and Australia share all criminal history records through a cooperative agreement so the arrest will be a hit when the US does a background check.
My company have requested me to transfer to NY for the next*****hearing was Dec 2014 and bond is therefore up in December 2015.
You may not be eligible for a visa until you complete your bond. Until you do that you could still be brought back into court for violation so the case is not closed.
Can they tell my employer?
Is it worth the risk even bothering to apply for visa?
I doubt you will get the visa until after the case is disposed of and dismissed.
Separate issue to working there if that falls through, can I travel there as a tourist for a wedding for a week on visa waiver while in same situation
After the case has been disposed of then you can file the ESTA. Until then you are still under the jurisdiction of the court.
On the ESTA form the question is different:
Have you ever been arrested or convicted for a crime that resulted in serious damage to property, or serious harm to another person or government authority?
You can answer NO to that because it was petty larceny but you have to have the case dismissed because you will need to carry with you a certified copy of the court disposition to prove you have no conviction and the arrest was for petty larceny.
Different law from the work visa
. Different question.
