You are eligible for sealing a DUI after seven years passes from the date of closing the case. This does not apply to cases that have been in warrant or are not closed.

Immigration is a different question. I am not a practitioner of immigration, so you would need to consult an immigration attorney prior to initiating the sealing process.
