Bermuda: Work permit and minor convictions? Will my application be refused??:
I'm wondering if someone can help me.
After many months of searching and visiting Bermuda I have been offered a job and I'm very pleased. I hold a valid U.K. Passport and my new employer has sent work permit documents to complete. In order to get a bermudian work permit I need to provide a police certificate... this shouldn't be problem as I believe myself to be a person of good character, law abiding etc... but unfortunately last year I didnt choose my company wisely one night and long story short, I'm paying the price with a unspent conviction for possession of a class c(prescribed and not illegal) drug.
What I would like to know is if this will affect being granted a work permit. I've searched everywhere for work permit eligibility details and just keep finding info that says you need to supply a police certificate... but nothing that says whether a conviction, whether spent, unspent would cause your work permit application to be declined. I was a fool. I know! But I'm not a bad person.. I'd be grateful if someone could tell me if I'm application would be refused on that basis. All other work permit requirements are absolutely fine, just this one I am unsure of.
