When completing the “Application Form for Certificate of Good Conduct” for applying for a visa to enter the United States of America, the applicant must proceed as follows:
The point IV. of the application form "Compliance with other law” (“más törvénynek való megfelelés") should be replaced by "Requesting an American immigrant visa” or “For US visa” (“amerikai bevándorló vízum céljából” vagy “USA vízumhoz”).
In this case – if the applicant is not recorded in the register – the Ministry of Interior shall certify that the named person is “NOT INCLUDED IN THE REGISTER OF CRIMINALS”, also that s/he is “NO SUBJECT TO CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS”.
If the client does not indicate the above in the application form at point IV., it may result in a rejection of the applicant's visa application for the United States of America.
