Can I get into USA with a conviction? 4 Answers as of April 08, 2011As a 19 year old a good friend was convicted of manslaughter (self defense). He is now 47 a good man and has had no further incidents. He served 4 years in prison for the conviction. He is looking to conduct some business in the US which should take between 2 - 4 weeks. Any advice regarding this issue would be appreciated. We are from NZ.

I am assuming that your friend fulfilled any terms of parole/probation. I would hate to mislead you with an answer that may not be correct. I would recommend consulting with an immigration attorney who may be better able to answer this question.
