I had DWI arrest last year. I have completed the required things to dismiss it and it was dismissed 2 months back. I do have a court certified copy of dismissal with me. i have mentioned about  this record in DS160. will this delay my visa stamping in any way? I have my stamping on 15 oct in kingston, jamaica

As far as I know they are not even opening the ds-160...so it shouldn't be a problem...But as you know its depends on your luck too....

thanks for the replies. my case was dismissed by the judge after completing the one year pre trial divert program. only thing i am worried about are my finger prints. they would know that i have arrest record, so more questions will be coming my way.  

 

 my dwi attorney and immigration attorney say that i dont have a problem as long as I have the court certified disposition copy. hope everything goes well.

yeah, that might be possible. Even if i have medicals from here, they will send me to a consulate affiliated doctor again. so, I guess I need to be prepared for that.

hey could you keep us posted on what happens with you? it would be helpful..gd luck with the stamping

guys,

 

I got my visa approved on Oct15th without any issues. they did ask about my DWI, when they saw the certified dismissal copy, it was all good. I requested for passport to be given the next day. within two days i got back to the states.I was not asked for any medicals.

 

At Miami port of Entry I was taken for a secondary check on my finger prints and after verifying i was let go.

 

I guess everything should be ok as long as you have all the paperwork to support your case.

 

good luck

I am on the same boat .Had a dui in Topeka,Kansas on may 2012 ,was arrested and released on bail next day.

I was granted Dui diversion and was on probation for 1 year  and my license was not suspended.

I have paid all fees and attended the classes am out of probation 4 months ago.Am planning to for stamping(h1b) to Kingston,Jamaica  very soon.

 

I have all the papers(arrest related,classes completion ,out probation) ,as of now i dont have any papers from court that the case was dismissed but have a letter from my probation officer that i have sucessfully completed my diversion.

 

Can you suggest me something ,am very nervous ???

Hi sk9683,

 

I am on the same boat, had my DUI  in California Dec 2012 and convicted in court Jun 2013 and trying to go for h1 stamping to Jamaica. 

I am done with everything like DUI Classes and Community service but I am still paying the fine through payment options and will get it done by this month. After i pay the whole fine amount i will collect the papers from Court that says my case is closed and dismissed.

 

Now that i am working as a full time employee for a big company in California itself.

 

My question is, 

I want to know in which case they ask for Medical Exam and which case they don't. I heard if the DUI is with in last 12 months, they ask for medical exam.

 

Was your case just a random one, or they never ask for Medical Exam in Jamaica as long as you submit case dismissal papers.

 

Please share your thoughts.

My friend who has attended the  interview on Nov 14 2014 has the same situation, he has a DUI charge. He was asked to take the medicals and he submitted the documents on Nov 20th . They just asked to check the status in The tracker which shows administrative processing. Could you please advise on how  many days it is going to take and some pointers on this situation would be very helpful
