Criminal record and visa control
I am a citizen of the UK. A decade ago, when i was 18, i was convicted of a minor crime and fined 150 pounds. This year I have been in the USA, having successfully received a 10 year unresitricted B1/B2 visa (as an independent researcher.. sounds fancy but i'm just a phd student :-)) The issue I need some clarification on is how, if at all, this would affect entry to Mexico. Firstly, do i need to obtain a Mexican visa given my past? There is no information on the UK Mexican Consulate website. If the Mexican authorities do not do criminal records checks would the fact that i have applied and received a US visa indicate to the Mexican authorities that i have some background that required that i obtain a US visa, rather than use the visa waiver, and therefore reduce my chance of gaining entry?
I realize this is a detailed question and any help would be very much appreciated :-)
