C-1 Visa - Frequently Asked Questions


What if I was convicted in the U.S.?

If you were arrested and convicted of an offense in the U.S., you are required to obtain 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, or you are unable to obtain a copy of the court record(s) relating to the charges against you, you may submit with your application a sworn statement which gives the location of the arrest, state and county, and the reason for the arrest. If the arrest resulted in a conviction, the statement should discuss the nature of the offense committed, section of the law contravened and penalty imposed by the court(s). If you do not know the address of the court, the information is available from the internet at:
