  • Serious FBI record quest! arrest notification!

    I recently have applied to Singapore visa office for skilled Federal immigration. They have sent me a notification about the application being received and i have got a file number. Its going to take about 42-45 months according to them, which is OK with me as i am settling stuffs in my country and need time.

    But my question is, when i was in USA for 8 years as a student (for my bachelors and masters) i had two incidents that should be in my FBI record when i will apply for one. I would like to share with you guys if these will make any problem for me when i will submit them to the visa officer.

    1) After 9/11 happened, they FBI and immigration people practically went to every universities and investigate students. Once they have come to my house and took me in for two charges. One is for not being able to show up for registration when they asked us to and another was me being failure to notify them my change of address. However, i had the registration and had the registration number with me as well. But they were not convinced that, it was original. And the change of address rule was not into affect at that time. I am talking about sometime late 2003. they removed the law then. Anyway, they were in no mood to listen to me and took me in for 3 hours and then let me go asking me to appear at the court for trial for "deportation"! I went up there on scheduled date and talked with the judge and attorney general. They saw my paper from school officials and other evidences and got convinced that, i was at no fault and they terminate the case. And returned my passport within 3 days.

    However, when they took me in they had taken finger print of mine and i am sure that is in their record. It will be on the report. Nothing criminal though.

    2) I was once arrested for not paying traffic ticket (non moving violation - for expired registration on my car). It was out of city ticket, which i actually have paid through postal mail but according to them it never arrived there. So, they arrested me there and took finger print and was in there for 5-6 hours and later my friend came in to pay the fee and released me. This incident should be there as well. However, its 3rd degree misdemeanor crime to fail to pay traffic ticket. Nothing criminal as well.

    Now, since i have applied simplified version of the application to Singapore, they will ask me for an interview after 45+ months (around 4 years), and i will be forthcoming and truthful to the visa officers about the situation. I have the court letter with me stating that, they have terminated the case. But the finger prints will be there and there was a deportation procedures against me, even though i won the case.

    gurus, i am preparing for IELTS and other stuffs for this immigration procedures, but these two incidents are bugging me. There is absolutely nothing in my 8 years in USA, 4 years in Dubai and rest of the time in my native country, Bangladesh. What you guys think of these?? Please suggest me!!! It will at least give me some mental satisfaction, if i know that i would eligible or not for immigration to Canada.

    not deported

    AAkash! I am sorry about your woes and I apologize that I too do not know about the severity of the misdemeanors you posess. However the fact that you were not deported from the USA is very important and this is a positive factor on your part. Since you were not deported you voluntarily departed and this is in your favor. Have heart and my best wishes to you.

      actually i departed after 4 years of that proceedings. The case was terminated because the found enough evidence to cancel the case all together. I came back to my country after i had finished both my BS and MA. I was eligible for all immigration benefit after that hearing on court.

      I am worried about the fingerprint and a procedure of deportation against me. and of course that arrest for not paying a traffic ticket on time.

      any body with closely associated situation that are waiting or already have got PR?
