What is the process to apply for a spent conviction in NSW. I was convicted of Malicious damage under $1000 in Sydney after a road incident which occurred at a time of great stress in my life in 1998 and was followed by treatment for hypertension and other stress management processes. I am traveling to Europe and the UK in April and believe this may assist in getting a general visitor visa. The Visa questionnaire includes "Do I have a criminal conviction". Is it true that I do not have to disclose if the conviction is "Spent" or do you have any advice regarding the possible outcome of applying for a Visa disclosing this conviction? I will also be stopping over in Phuket on the return, will a Visa be required ?. I have read what I can on the internet and although there is a detailed document from WA I cannot find any specific help for NSW. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated as I was made redundant in 6/2012 and have yet to find further work. I am 57 and have applied for a Carers payment for the work I do looking after my elderly mother in her own home. Yours faithfully
It was a fine for the cost of the damage to the cars mudguard where I kicked it (after it had tried to run me off the road on my bike) around $900 I think but under $1000
Thanks for your response. I will review the document you referred to and proceed with the application.
