It depends on the specifics of the criminal record and how serious the matter was.

Things like a drug conviction would likely be ok, DUI something like.

If it's theft of property or similar it will be very tough.

If it's related to domestic violence, armed robbery or similar, then likely you can forget about it.

But there's no harm in trying to prove your case.

Never been to prison if that helps 

It depends on what visa you are applying for, the nature of the crime and the sentence imposed. 

No one size fits all answer I'm afraid.

This is not the case as it will depend on many factors.

Attempted? Did you accidentally urinate privately instead?

No. Spent the night down the pub with my mates. Stopped for a slash against a wall on the way home, but I couldn't go. Turned around and there were two coppers standing there

Fascinating! Surprised you got a criminal conviction for it. It is indeed a criminal offence in Australia.

If you hide this fact from your application it will more likely you will have it rejected than if you admit it, supply the evidence of the charge and explain what happened and apologies.

It is a summary offence in NSW.

Yeah I expected it to be so. But generally speaking, there is a common sense approach, something like being caught smoking weed when you are 19, vs violent burglary with jail time. 

Has there been anyone you know who has had a VISA granted with a criminal conviction for domestic abuse?

No, I was fully zipped up when I turned around. I never bothered to turn up for the court hearing. Apparently it's voluntary in the UK.

And the copper said - you are the first person I have seen who had to pump it out. 

You would have been better off doing an inside job.

Declare it to immigration and forget it.
