I have a situtation.
I have just booked to go to Orlando on a last minute deal in 8 days time and I was looking at the visa waiver forms. A question they ask is if anybody has ever been arrested.
2 and a half years ago I was arrested for 'drunk and disorderly' for an offence which was not in anyway my fault, nor did I have anything to do with it as I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, so I paid the fine as court was the last thing I wanted to attend.
I called Thomas Cook and went into the travel agent regarding this who said that I need to contact the US Embassy in London (from what I have read on the internet there is no way I have time to do this!). From what I have read regarding the US Embassy, they say that ANY arrests have to be declared.
I read into the question further and the question asks if anyone has been arrested or convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude. Upon looking at moral turptude, drunk and disorderly from what I can see on wikipedia (if I can rely on this) does not come under a crime of moral turpitude. So would I be able to tick no to this question?
What I am worried is I heard on a radio show a couple of months ago about someone who got their us visa declined (i'm not sure if visa waiver or actual visa) as they had a drink driving offence.
I don't know what to do, should I cancel? Should I tick no on the visa waiver as it's not a serious offence?
Has anyone else been charged for the same and gone to USA?
Thanks for your help! Any comments will ease the stress I'm going through right now!
