To whom it may concern, I am a duel citizen of both Australian & United Kingdom and have passports for both countries. About four years ago i was caught with possession of marijuana whilst travelling in Norway. I got a fine and then left to continue travelling. However, i was issued with a Schengen zone ban. I was still able to travel through Europe because i was a UK citizen and i thought the ban was unlawful but by the time i had even realised, i heard that the ban was over. My question is in regards to what consequences this possession may have had on my future travels. I would like to go travelling and i don't know whether or not it will infringe on my ability to enter certain countries. I have fear that if i attempt to enter a county i may be turned around at the border. Much thanks for any help that could be provided
