I just got denied by the US consul of Melbourne, a Visa Renewal E3 for Australians. Due to being arrested in Las Vegas for possession of a controlled substance.
Facts: I did not know what the substance was, a friend gave it to me to hold in a club. Instead of risking trial i please guilty to ITS interstate commerce. I paid a $300 fine, did the drug/alcohol course and the case was closed.
Should i file a "waiver of inadmissibility"? What are my chances of appealing to the AAO?
recorded charge: Misdemeanor NRS 454.351 Drugs which may not be introduced into interstate commerce; penalty; exemptions.
Forgive my ignorance, but what exactly were you convicted for? What was your sentence? If you have a trafficking related offense you have a big problem. Generally convictions that reference "interstate commerce" are trafficking related.
