Indeed I answered that there is a conviction. I am in a renewal process. A 5 year visa is about to expire and I am applying for a 10 year renewal. Prior to the 5 year renewal, i have had previous consistently in the last 10 or so odd year. The current renewal has taken so much time and I have not heard back from the High Commission.
Other than that glitch when I was studying in the UK 28 years ago, i am squeakily clean. I am in very good financial standing and in fact have 2 properties in the UK. Is that conviction alone enough grounds to refuse a visa?
Sorry I have one last question, does the question on crimimal convictions extend to parking tickets (issued by wardens & cameras)? I ask the question extended to parking offences.
