I'm a financial services consultant and will be transferring from the US office to the Hong Kong office within the next few months. Hong Kong visa is approved and start date in Hong Kong is confirmed.
My concern is this - Over 10 years ago I was convicted of misdemeanor driving offenses in the US. Basically being reckless on a motorcycle I had in college. I will be on the bank's client site in Hong Kong and suspect I will have to go through a background check on their end before being allowed to work. Will I have an issue getting cleared because of my misdemeanors in the US? Does the Hong Kong bank's background check even check my US history?
PS I went through the background check for the bank's US office and was cleared to work. Just wondering if things will be different on the Hong Kong end.
Thanks in advance for your replies.
