    Default Can You Qualify for Visa Waiver With an Arrest Record

    Hi,
    My husband and I are planning to go to New York in October so I was checking the visa wavier programme and it says that you need to apply for a visa if you have been arrested. I was arrested about 8 years ago but after a few hours I was cleared and released as I hadn't done anything - it turned out to be a frame. Would I be ok to go without a visa as I was cleared?
    Also my husband was arrested over 10 years ago but was just released with a caution so would he also be ok?
    Many thanks.

    If your arrest shows up when you attempt to enter, you risk being denied entry. Nobody here can promise that it will go undetected.

    Default Re: Do I Need a Visa

    I don't want to risk anything! I need to know legally what I'm required to do as I can't find any information anywhere relating to arrests that were cleared. It never shows up on CRB checks or anything, I don't want to pay all that money sorting out a visa for no reason.
    Am I required, by law, to obtain a visa before I go?
