Hi,

Thank you visa journeyers for all your advice in the past it helped us get through some nail biting timeframes.. :).

I am married to a u.s. Citizen, and have a green card. I have just applied for a uk visitors visa. But I had an offense for driving without car insurance and tag, and they gave me supervised probation, which i was not locked up, just seeing a probation officer once a month .during the probation time, which was for one year, I have traveled to Ghana 3 times and went on cruises with my wife and kids twice with permission of the court to travel. I have had red light tickets and a couple of parking tickets in the past for expired meter. (that is all it was...nothing strange found illegal in the car, nor any other prior run ins with the law) so, now the probation is ended, and it was completed .

I am now waiting for info if my visa will be approved, I will be going with my wife who is a u.s. Citizen .has anyone else had a traffic offense and tried for a British visa? Any info would help..thanks!

F.y.I. My green card has just been approved for an extra year while I am waiting to go on my interview to change status to a permanent green card.

Hi ,

I traveled to London in july while I was still a green card holder (I had applied for general visitor's visa middle of april 2011). the application form(online form) did not ask any questions about offenses etc( unless they have just updated it. I paid $125 and then $12.00 processing fee. You are then required to select the nearest ASC ( Application support center); a USCIS office and book a date and time to have them fingerprint you which is transmitted to the British consulate electronically ( this partnership helps them save time and money). once you mail in ur passoprt with necessary supporting documents, you get an email reply within 7 business days information you of the outcome e.g "your visa has been issued ( that was d update I received) and then they will give you a tracking number showing the process of your passport and greencard back to you( Yes I submitted my original greencard!!, of course through USPS tracking option). They will tell you that you have an option to just submite photocopy but then that may affect the outcome of the review :(. The only offense I have had in life with the law both here and in Nigeria inclduing at the time of my application was making a left turn when a signs said "NO LEFT TURN :(...I was new at driving just 3weeks and my GPS misled me!!!...of course the police officer did not care even though he saw the GPS and my new license so i got a ticket and two points on my license ( that was three years ago though....as long as there is nothing hidden and you paid the price already ...you will be fine
