UK Criminal Record

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have 2 small criminal records both resulted in just fines, I know it's not an issue for my immigration but I wondered if they transfer your Criminal records to the US with you. So if someone runs a US background check your UK crimes will show up?

No it only shows on the UK records, although when you go for a job here(in my experience) most companies will check back to the UK criminal records, so always a good Idea to be truthful on any application you complete, as they will come across it, Normally they will ask if in the past 7 years....please explain.

hope this helps.

I've passed a background check for one Job I applied for a small firm but I have also applied for a large corporation which I am waiting to hear from.

good luck, I joined a large corporate job too, they took nearly 6/8 weeks to get all the background check completed, this was after giving me a start date, for me to hand in two weeks notice to my previous employer, it was very frustrating, but got their in the end....
