UK to ban visa fraudsters for 10 years

Islamabad, March 01, 2008: The British High Commission (BHC) on Friday warned visa seekers that fake visa applications would be refused and applicants banned from applying for 10 years.

"People who make fraudulent applications for UK visas will be automatically refused and will be banned from applying for a visa for 10 years," the BHC said in a statement quoting the decision of the British government.

It said that tough new rules, which apply throughout the world with immediate effect, mean that anyone making false representations or using false documents, or failing to disclose material facts in their application, will automatically be refused a UK visa.

"The rules apply even if the deception occurs without the knowledge of the applicant," the statement said, adding that from April any applicant who had tried to cheat the system in a previous visa application would be barred from applying for a UK visa for 10 years.

Welcoming the move, British Acting High Commissioner Ray Kyles said, "Fraud is a major problem, which we are determined to tackle. These new rules show that we will not tolerate anyone trying to cheat the system, and that the only way to get a UK visa is the genuine way," the statement said. Daily Times
