US Embassy warns applicants of visa fraud

Update : 21 Jan 2023, 11:47

The US Embassy in Dhaka on January 20 has released a statement condemning the recent fraudulent activities regarding US visas.

In coordination with the U.S. Embassy, Bangladesh police have arrested six individuals who were selling fraudulent entry and exit stamps to U.S. visa applicants.   
"U.S. visa applicants are responsible for the information they provide on visa application forms and for any documents they provide at the interview. The best guidance for prospective visa applicants is to review information on the U.S. Embassy website, be prepared for their interview with any supporting documentation, and provide factual and truthful answers during the visa process and interviews", the statement said.   
"It is not necessary to use a visa broker to apply for a U.S. visa. U.S. visa applicants are encouraged to complete their own applications online, as all the information needed to make an application can be found on our website. We also caution prospective applicants that presenting false information and documents may not only result in a visa denial but may also result in an ineligibility that prevents future travel to the United States," the embassy warned.
