Mexican Work Visa with Misdemeanor DUI on Record

Asked over 1 year ago - Omaha, NE

I am contracted to move to Mexico from the US in the fall and work as a teacher at a high school. I am applying for my visa right now, and I was wondering if a past misdemeanor DUI will prevent me from obtaining the visa I need. Thank you for your help.
