Q: Hi I am a permanent resident (USA), I was arrested once (a year ago), I wasn't convicted but they keep stoping me airpor
I went to cuba about 2 months, and they stopped me again at the airport, I'm going again on november I just want to know if I will have any problem. I even have a letter from the court saying that my case was closed, and that I wasn't convicted.
A: Unfortunately, it can take some time for the system to update, however, a year seems a bit excessive. For your upcoming trip, hopefully, the system has updated, in case it has not I would definitely carry the letter from the court with you. However, based on the information you provided I would not be concerned to travel, you just might have to endure the pain of the slow-moving government system as it updates.
