Simple. Its a criminal record check, so if you haven't got a criminal record you'll be fine.

so then...... what..?

Seems I have a criminal record, if I was arrested, and put on probation right...?
I was told if i completed probation, with no problems, then would not be on perminate record..
Now since I need to get a "federal" check, will this be on it.. and HOW can this affect getting ARC.. I mean.. People are NOT perfect, and it is considered a "misdemeanor" offense..


SO IF this IS on my record, then could I be denied.. Even though its a small crime, and no jail time for it at all.
Is it just if there is anything on background then no matter what it is, can be denied..?Or is it done on case, by case basis..?

direct responses please...

Request your background check to cover only the time after your arrest and conviction. For example: If you were convicted in 1999, request a criminal background check covering 2000 to present. Then, your criminal offense won't show up. :bow:

Really, you can do such a thing..?
The Taiwan government isn't looking for a complete background history check?
I also dont even remember exactly when it happened, was so insignificant. Never mattered before.. I would still suspect it should show up on any background check prior to the event.. It was a SIS, meaning suspended imposition of sentence. Since I completed probation, I never served any jail time.

Well, the Taiwan government isn't very sharp about such things and you can slide quite a lot of shit (even in ziplock bags) past them if you are so inclined. I know of one convicted felon who got his JFRV using the specific date request method for his criminal background check! Really!

It depends on how the criminal record check is written. For the background checks I've helped process they didn't stipulate the time frame. They simply said,

"Please be advised that based on the descriptors provided, there is no conviction criminal history record information on the above named individual"

So, depending on which country you hail from and which federal agency you need to deal with, yours may or may not include the requested background check time frame in the final report.

Also, some employers who request a background check on a future employee sometimes only require the last five years, seven years, ten years, etc. In the US, most job applications ask if you have been convicted of a felony in the past seven years. So, if you were to provide a background check as a condition of employment, you would only need the past seven years in many cases.

Suggestion: Do two background checks. One that covers the last 10 years since your conviction and one that covers your lifetime. Then you can look at both and decide how best to proceed.
