I will try to make this short. About ten years ago, I made a stupid mistake. I was arrested with possession of ecstasy, the amount of 5, enough for the drugs trafficking amount and I was convicted and fined $3000. I'm 28 years of age now and I want to put all that behind me, and I was hoping I could get it cleared somehow? I also want to go on a family trip overseas, specifically America and I'm worried when the family and I land I will be stopped at customs. What would be my best option? I know you can apply for the waiver through the embassy but I just think I will be flagged once I arrive. So my two questions are, is my criminal record still on file given its been 10 years? And I live in Victoria, so as far as travelling goes, what is the chance of me being stopped if I tick no on the form you get on the plane? From what I have read some country's aren't as stringent, e.g. UK, etc. Thank you for reading I appreciate any help.
