The UK Border Agency and Chennai police in India have co-operated in the arrest of a UK visa applicant for visa fraud, the agency announced this week.

In an unusual step, the visa applicant was arrested at the UK Border Agency offices in Chennai, South India on 8 October after submitting falsified documents in support of a Tier 1 (General) visa application.

UK Border Agency entry clearance manager, Ms Gemma Dodgson, said:

‘Unfortunately we are seeing increasing numbers of forged documents. Our document checks are very thorough. The UK Border Agency refuses applications that are supported by false documents and the applicant also faces a ban of up to 10 years on travel to the UK. As this case shows, we will also refer cases to the police, with whom we have good co-operation.’

In the first 9 months of 2010 almost 1000 visa applicants have had their visa applications refused by the UK Border Agency in Chennai and now face a 10-year ban because they submitted forged documentation or false information.

    I just don`t understand why people would be so stupid enough to submit forged documentation or false information? I am sure British embassies all over the world have access to many things to verify documents etc…Enough Said.
