    Answered . Depending on the offense for which a conviction was entered, you may or may not be disqualified. And, if there is a disqualification, you may have success with filing an application for a waiver. Among other thngs, they'll consider the amount of time has passed since the criminal conviction, the rest of your record (if any), the nature of the charges, your work experience, references, and more. You can find out more about twic disqualifictions here:
