U.S. Visa Application and U.S. Passport
U.S. Visa Application and U.S. Passport

Many immigrants diligently follow the correct procedures to obtain visas and legally enter the U.S. However, there are instances where visa fraud is committed for various reasons, such as:

  • Anticipated visa denial through legitimate channels.
  • Intentions to smuggle unauthorized immigrants into the U.S.
  • Evading prosecution in their home country.
  • Engaging in other illicit activities, like drug trafficking or terrorist activities.

Upon detection of visa fraud by the U.S. government, the accused individual will:

  • Be notified of deportation.
  • Undergo a deportation hearing to defend against visa fraud allegations.
  • Face deportation if the immigration court’s decision is unfavorable.
  • Possibly never secure a legitimate U.S. visa again.

Common Visa Fraud Methods

Visa fraud can manifest in several ways, including:

  • Submitting forged or false documents during visa applications.
  • Omitting crucial personal details that would render one ineligible for a visa. For instance, not disclosing past violent crime convictions is considered visa fraud.
  • Illegally selling or transferring valid visas.
  • Misrepresenting reasons for visa application, like falsely claiming student status to get a student visa.
  • Altering visa documents.

U.S. immigration laws addressing visa fraud encompass:

  • Fraud and misuse of visas – 18 USC 1546
  • False statements for visa acquisition – 18 USC 1001
  • ID fraud – 18 USC 1028
  • Bribing officials for visas – 18 USC 201
  • Conspiring against the U.S. – 18 USC 371.
