I was wondering if anyone can help me please?
I've applied for an ESTA to visit The States, however it's been declined. The only reason I can think of is that I misread one of the eligibility questions.
It states the following ' Have you ever been arrested or convicted for an offense or crime involving moral turpitude or a violation related to a controlled substance; or have been arrested or convicted for two or more offenses for which the aggregate sentence to confinement was five years or more; or have been a controlled substance trafficker; or are you seeking entry to engage in criminal or immoral activities? '
To this I answered no, however, the only reason I can think of why it has came back as a refusal was that three years ago, I was arrested at a party as their was a raid on the house I was at for drugs. However, I was released and not charged for anything.
I read the question, thinking you had to declare it if I'd been charged, so answered it as a No.
Would this affect my application even just being arrested? If so, could I make another application online and advise that I was arrested and not charged?
Any help would be appreciated, as we have booked to go, but don't know what to do now.
