Yeah its a question impossible to answer really, if its for work related purposes you do have to apply for a visa like mentioned above.

Have your interview, perhaps bring in a letter or 2 of good positive references be it your manager or work colleges or someone who knows you well, try to find someone who has a good working background and employed.

I have never had that interview so can't advise further but at least if you suggest it was a long time ago and your a different person now and moved on it may work or may not, all depends on the interviewer for your work visa.

If it does not work out, perhaps you could discuss the matter with your boss and explain you can't travel to US and see if other options are available.

hi tony i think this enough to answer your question.
Applicants applying for visas at the U.S. Embassy in Dublin are required to furnish a court record from the court(s) in which you were tried. Such court records must show the nature of the offense(s) committed, the section(s) of law contravened and the actual penalty imposed. If the arrest did not result in a conviction, you may submit with your application the documents relating to the arrest. Applicants applying for visas at the U.S. Embassy in Dublin are also required to furnish a Police Certificate from your local Garda Station.

Hi Tony,

Difficult one to answer I'm afraid - it could be that no one wants to be the possible bearer of bad news. I would say that yes, you would have to go through the visa process and have the interview etc.

Normal tourist travel I would suggest you may wish to try your luck with the "it was a long time ago, remorse, remorse, folly of youth" etc. and this may well work with the tourist side if applying. I would check on the Unlock Hub to see if there is any more information regarding work visas. I'm tired tonight otherwise I'd have a look for you and post the link here.

Sorry I'm not much help - I'm sure someone more knowledgeable than me will be along in due course.

When i was younger i made a few silly mistakes and ended up getting locked up for a few years for concerned in the supply (class B).

I was released in 2006 and since then have had no issues at all with the police, now a job has came up that would require travel to USA. I see some people getting visa's with simple possession charges but i can't find anything about the concerned in the supply.

Would it be a simple refusal or if i went for an interview is there a possibility of getting one however small?
