    I am travelling with a friend who reprimand on his record(from when he was young)which is his only minor offence, can he apply for Visa waiver online or does he need to get an visa on his passport?

    Thank you

    If he applies for the Visa Waiver scheme online, and answers all the information correctly, it will tell him if he is eligible and if he has passed. I imagine if you have anything on your record, then you will probably have to apply for a full visa. But maybe he should try applying to see if he is accepted.

    Just give it a try. Child delinquency is hardly something the US authorities are going to be worried about if the child in question is fully grown.

    Tell him to apply online and fully read the notes for every question before he answers. Getting a rejection from ESTA doesn't mean you definitely can't travel to the US, so it's not going to cost him anything to apply.

    The problem is he applied first time and it was approved but the question, have you been arrested applies to him but not everything else in that question and the second to he went to updated the record clicked yes to being arrested, at the end of it it said denied travel. So he has to apply for a visa.
