India visa checks to be tightened at airports

- Posted in Worldwide by Visa Bureauon 09 June 2009

The Government will install new security systems and personnel for all India visa and passport checks after 3,600 cases of fraudulence were detected over the past three years. This will include using magnifying glasses and ultra violet lamps to scan documents and Passport Reading Machines for passport verification.

According to the Press Trust of India, travel agents supported by other offenders provide the majority of illegal India visa documents.
