When getting the Medicals do they ask about mental health, my husband is on meds for depression does he have to disclose that & will we still get a PR visa?

Thanks for that, it was just a got caught over the limit, lost his license for a few months but got a work permit so he could drive to & from work & was fined!!
That information was very legal, do you think this situation would cause us to be declined??

Yes you have to declare the meds and depression.

Yes you can be denied for DUI if it was in the last 5 years.

The DUI was in the last 5 years, you said can be denied, is there still a chance we could be approved??
Has anyone been approved with a DUI on their application???
Do we just put the application in & hope for the best & is there anything we could do to increase our chances??

No. You will not be approved. It has to be at least 5 years since.

Keep your head up, and try to look at it from the bright side: 3 extra years for you to save money! So you will be better prepared, you can learn a lot more in those 3 years, ...

Well, the forms specifically ask you to declare such information, do you really want to get caught in a lie by immigration?

I certainly don't, that would make matters worse!

We contacted the embassy & they said we can send an email explaining the circumstance & add the court documents & they will let us know if we can proceed with the application so fingers crossed, it was a low level & a one time thing so hopefully they will look favorably on us ;)

What was the BAC %? Waist under 0.8?

10 years before it doesn't count.
5 years you can apply to be considered rehabilitated.

I don't like your chances, in fact they are slim to nothing.

First, please use full text and punctuation, not "text speak", thanks.

Second, you can only apply for criminal rehabilitation after 5 years (unless it is for temporary entry only).
