I am an IT professional with specialization in DevOps. I am offered a permanent position in a German software firm at their Berlin office. They are willing to sponsor my VISA and relocation along with my family.
Now the problem is my criminal history. I am convicted of drunk driving in India around 16 months ago. This was the biggest mistake on my part to drive after drinking and I was caught at a routine checkpoint. My BAC was 0.38 whereas limit in India is 0.3. DUI is a criminal offence in India. I don't have a any other issues and I must say that I've learnt big lesson to not take law of land lightly.
I am not able to find much information around Germany's stand on immigrants with DUI. Can someone please help me understand the possibility of my VISA coming through. In case chances are very low, I'll probably save company's money by rejecting the offer and letting them know that problem is at my part.
