getting skilled immigrant visa with criminal record


I am German national; I am applying for skilled immigrant visa,
2 years ago I worked in France for 6 months, when I was in France I was convicted and fined for shoplifting.
Since I only stayed for 6 months I need not have to get police clearance from France.

How the immigration officers know about my conviction if I do not mention in my visa application?

They might have computers scanning forums like this looking for hits on conviction, so every German for the next few years applying for a skilled visa and who for countries lived in lists France could have their name cross checked against French court records.

But a shoplifting conviction will not be sufficient reason to have a visa refused whereas being dishonest may, best to be honest.

Also pay you to have a look at sticky thread #4 to appraise yourself of priorities on processing applications.
