Can I travel to the US if I get a criminal record?

>>>Can I travel to the US if I get a criminal record?

Criminal convictions for certain offences will affect your ability to travel to the US. The offences which will result in your exclusion from the US are commonly known as crimes of moral turpitude, and include murder, manslaughter, sexual assault, theft, bribery, forgery, aggravated assault, prostitution and fraud. An allegation of, or conviction for, possession of or trafficking in a controlled substance, involvement with terrorism, human trafficking or money laundering, may also result in your exclusion.

Offences which will not result in your exclusion from the US include impaired driving, breaking and entering, disorderly conduct, and common assault. Multiple convictions for offences not considered to be crimes of moral turpitude may also result in exclusion from the US. If you have a criminal record which may result in your exclusion from the US, you can apply for a temporary waiver in advance that may allow you to travel to the US, which our office can help you with. For more information about admission to the US and criminal records, consult the US Customs and Border Protection website:

If you are concerned about the impact that a criminal record may have on your ability to travel to the US, it is recommended that you speak with a criminal defence lawyer to explore the defences and options that may be available to avoid a criminal record.

Glowing Reviews From Our Clients

My career depended upon the successful resolution of my matter, and I couldn’t have been happier with the way Michael handled my case. He knew right away the best strategy to take to allow me to have my charges withdrawn, and was able to follow through as he promised, for a very reasonable cost. I would highly recommend this law firm.

S.A.

I would definitely recommend Michael Oykhman and his team. Not only were my charges dropped but the professionalism and empathy I was shown gave you confidence knowing someone was working just as hard as you would be to obtain the best possible result. For anyone looking for lawyer he is one of the best hands down.
