I asked for a police certificate from ACRO, and while completing the request form, there is this question (which embassy are you applying for a visa at ?) does it mean that ACRO have alerted US embassy about my case ? please help, I had a caution for shoplifting 2 years ago, I was a student back then depressed and hopeless, but today I need to go to the US for a business trip, I am still not sure I wanna disclose my CR to the US embassy on the DS160 form because chances are they won't grant me a VISA, and the fact that I asked for Police certificate worries me a lot.. I am worried US embassy already know about my CR from ACRO.
please note: I am not a UK citizen, so I have to apply for a visa anyway.
