So a few years back, I was arrested by Irish police for prescription forgery. They let me go with a warning (adult caution) and that was it. I was under the impression that it was just a ‘slap on the wrist’ but my friend did tell me I was arrested even if I wasn’t put in handcuffs and that it goes on a record.
I travelled to the U.S. back in 2017 before this and now want to travel again at the end of this year/start of the next. If reapplying for my ESTA, would I have to declare this arrest record or is it okay as it’s not a criminal record?
