ACRO POLICE REPORT NOT MANDATORY FOR TRAVELLERS WITHOUT CRIMINAL RECORD
Applicants who have ever been arrested, cautioned or convicted or a previous offence, must declare this information in their visa application. This will require ‘administrative processing’ by the US Embassy, and will extend the consular processing time up to 60 days from the date of the visa interview. As timing is based on individual circumstances of each case, the US Embassy cannot guarantee visa issuance or visa processing times in advance of the interview. If you have a criminal conviction, we recommend that you apply well in advance of your intended travel date.
A Police Certificate or Court records pertaining to the arrest or conviction must be taken to the appointment, this applies even if the sentence is considered spent.
IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL CONDITION THAT COULD HAVE A BEARING ON YOUR ELIGIBILITY FOR A VISA
Travelers to the United States who have been afflicted with a disease of public health significance, a mental disorder which is associated with a display of harmful behavior, or are a drug abuser or addict may be ineligible to receive a visa. If found ineligible, they will require a waiver of ineligibility in order to travel.
At the time you apply for a nonimmigrant visa you are required to furnish from a doctor, specialist and/or other professional person familiar with your case a letter that addresses the following:
- diagnosis and relevant medical history of the your condition;
- current state of health;
- the likelihood of a need for care or hospitalization during your stay in the United States;
- whether you, in the opinion of the doctor, are likely to remain in a stable condition during the trip, and are likely to cope with a strange environment;
- details of any history of harmful behavior you have shown towards yourself, others, or property.
IF YOU HAVE OVERSTAYED IN, BEEN DENIED ENTRY TO OR DEPORTED FROM THE UNITED STATES
If you are applying for a nonimmigrant visa and have ever been denied entry into the United States by a US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer, you should bring a copy of the report of the incident, Form I-877 or I-867, to the visa interview.
Note: If you were not provided with copies of these forms, or are no longer in possession of them, you may apply with just the personal data form VCU1.
If you have ever been deported or removed from the United States you may be prohibited from reapplying for a visa depending on the circumstances for up to ten years. If you wish to travel during the period of exclusion you will require a visa and waiver of ineligibility. At the time you apply for the visa you are required to furnish a copy of the the removal proceedings or any documentation relating to your deportation/removal.
If you have overstayed the period of time granted by U.S. immigration under the Visa Waiver program (VWP) or violated the terms of a previously issued U.S. visa, you are required to apply for a visa at which time you are required to present full details of your overstay. In any of the above mentioned cases, you are also required to complete and bring a personal data form VCU1
