Drink driving offence

Recommended Posts

Hello I applied and got my working visa granted back in January but in February I got drink driving on my record. I haven't really thought much about it effecting my already granted visa. But I fly over next week and wondering should I have done something about it and what may happen when I get there???

I would think you will be fine. If it had been a prison sentence then I think there is a form you have to submit, hopefully one of the experts would know. 


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

You will need to declare in on your landing card and you will be asked some questions, but it won't be an issue.

I would definitely update them about it. Other direction but my aussie girlfriend was denied both a temp working visa and a holiday visa to the uk because of drink driving as it was within the previous 12 months. Not sure about heading to aus but as it's a criminal conviction you need to update them
