USA: Drugs

Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 16 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what (a) advice and (b) guidance his Department has issued to UK citizens with past drugs offences who wish to travel to the US; and if he will make a statement. (158447)

Foreign and Commonwealth Office travel advice advises that all UK citizens with criminal convictions should consult the US embassy regarding the need to obtain a visa prior to travel, as they may not qualify for travel under the US Visa Waiver Programme.

We provide similar advice to any direct requests we receive regarding planned travel to the US for those with convictions, whether drug related or otherwise.
