Customer Question

When travelling overseas do you have to declare probation as a conviction?

Expert:  Chris The Lawyer replied 1 year ago.

Probation is imposed as a sentence and where you have been convicted of a crime. So you do need to disclose this unless it is over 7 years ago, when it may be concealed under the Criminal Records Clean Slate Act

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That's fine thank you. Yes it is about 25 years ago.
Expert:  Chris The Lawyer replied 1 year ago.

Then you are lawfully allowed to say you have a clean record and don't have to disclose this.
