Committing fraud when applying for a visa is a serious offense. Applicants who commit fraud will be denied visas on current applications, and may not be able to qualify for a visa any time in the future.
If you have specific information about visa fraud, we would like to hear it. Write to us at ConsularRangoon@state.gov.
The following are some examples of visa fraud:
- Not answering questions truthfully or completely on the application forms, or during the interview.
- Submitting a document, like a birth certificate, with false information. How and where you got the document does not matter if the information is false.
- Submitting an official document, like a birth certificate, obtained from a non-official source, even if the information is true.
- Submitting any document that supports a relationship that doesn't really exist.
- Applying for a tourist visa if you intend to stay in the U.S., or study in the U.S.
