For immigrants with a criminal history in their respected home nation, attempting to obtain a visa so that they may enter the United States may sound impossible, however it is not. Being forthcoming and honest can help. Depending on the type of crime, the US government may not deny you a visa automatically. This is especially true if you are honest and forthcoming and there were mitigating circumstances for why you committed the crime. Lying or not being forthcoming will only make it easier for your visa to be denied. The US government does a background check on any applicant that applies for a visa. This is to ensure the safety of the US public. Visa applicants are highly encouraged to consult an Immigration Attorney before applying for a visa.
