A: Your B-1/B-2 visa can be revoked for various reasons. An arrest for certain crimes is one of the ways that can trigger the revocation. Another basis for revocation is a violation of your visa status as a visitor.

You should consult an experienced immigration attorney for a personalized assessment of your situation.

Good luck to you.
