2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

a permanent resident wants to travel abroad.has 2 Duis on record. wants to check if its safe to travel internationally and will he/she be allowed back in to the United States? They understand they might have to go through a secondary check but what are the chances of CBP saying they are inadmissible and denying them entry?

I had a DUI on record (charges were dropped, but I don't think that matters from an immigration standpoint).  The DUI occurred 10 years before receiving my GC.  I have been sent to secondary each of the 5 times I have come back into the country since receiving my GC.  They will most likely have the same experience, but should have no issues being admitted.  A DUI is not considered a crime of moral turpitude.  However, if the arrests happened after they received their GC, it may be a different issue.
