Criminal conviction
Hi there, wanting to know the procedures for criminal conviction, my partner and I have drink driving charge which is over 7 years old. We have an adopted 6 year old daughter who is half Rarotongan and thought it would be nice to take her here on next school holidays. Do we have to disclose this and will it effect our entry to Rarotonga?

Is my partner able to enter the cook islands
Hi my partner has an aggravated robbery charge from 2009 and went to prison for 2.4years. He has since turned his life around and has no more serious offences , just one for driving while over the legal limit. We are wanting to travel to Rarotonga for our honeymoon next year (2019) so it will be 10 years after his conviction. Will he be allowed to enter the Cook Islands?

The honorable Generous.
In the name of God, the most Merciful and the most Gracious. All praises be to God, the lord of the world, the master of the day after, the creator of everything in this universe.
We of the Delta Study Center Foundation are an educational foundation for orphaned children and poor children. The foundation was founded in 2006 which is addressed on Adil Makmur Street, Dolopo District, Madiun Regency, East Java, Indonesia. We of the Delta Study Center Foundation desperately need the help of the generous brothers.
The foundation aims to assist the learning process in facing the national exam for orphans and children from poor families who do not have enough finance to continue to get education from primary and secondary education for the better future of children
The Delta Study Center Foundation is funded by the community environment and benefactors around Dolopo Sub-district, Madiun District, East Java, Indonesia to keep this foundation to support the education of orphaned children and poor children.
The Delta Study Center Foundation currently has: 1 person leader, 6 teachers, 1 administrative staff, 1 hygiene worker, and students from orphans and the poor with approximately 150 children divided into 50 children aged 11-12 studying in Primary School and 100 children aged 13-15 years who are still studying in Junior High School. In 2015, we educated more than 200 children by December 2017. By the end of the year, the number of students will usually increase
Every month we have to spend money to help the learning activities for orphans and poor children in our place. Among others is for the provision of package books, exercise books, notebooks and writing equipment, electricity costs, room repair costs, the cost of house contracts that we occupy each month, the cost of drinking. For the house we live in, we are still renting. In the future we aspire to have a place of its own so do not rent anymore. We are very concerned with education for orphans and poor children in our city. The managers and teachers with brush serve for the children even if not paid. The children are very happy to learn at the Delta Study Center Foundation because it is free. Every month we have to spend around $ 1950 for our foundation operations. Photo reality of the Delta Study Center foundation we send via email.
Generous, we desperately need your help to create intelligent, learned, noble, and well educated children in our city. We want you to be a regular monthly donor to assist the foundation's operations.
Hopefully God replied the favor of your help. Thank You
