F1 Visa Interview – Denied and Banned from USA for Fake & Fraudulent Documents

f1 visa with fake documentsWhile sorting through my inbox, I saw this question from a prospective student whose F1 Visa was rejected 4 times due to fake documents.

I’m sure you know that in India, there are always going to be a bunch of students who would pay the agents for getting bank statements.

US Embassy and the Consulates try to catch them and of course ban such students from entering the USA.

Then, I saw another student share similar experience from Nigeria as well. You will read about both experiences here on this page.

I have rejected my F1 visa 4 times.  I approached through consultancy, they provided all fake documents like financial documents.

At time of my 4th interview, interviewer caught all my fake documents and he took a letter by me regarding fake documents.

Now, Iam planning to apply again for F1 visa and also i am putting all original documents.

Is there any chance to get the visa for me. Can you please give me some valuable suggestions?

F1 Visa with Fake Documents

Before appearing for F1 Visa interview with Fake Documents, you must have to know about the consequence of the getting caught.

In spite of that, you appeared for F1 visa interview with Fake Documents 4 times.

Effect of taking fake documents was rejection and probably a BIG Red Tape on your file.

You decided to go through the route of fabricating the documents and you have to face and live with the consequence of that.

F1 Visa Denial for Fraudulent Documents

There is a section in the Immigration law for rejection for providing fraudulent documents. It’s called 212(a)6(c)(i).

Can you go for F1 Visa for the 5th time?

Yes, you can try for the F1 visa for the 5th time.

Can I get F1 Visa to the USA?

I think chances of getting visa to the USA is very tough (impossible) after you have got caught with wrongdoing.  As the above screenshot says, don’t get caught.

You can do that by not going via the Fake documents route.

    Seriously dude, I have not seen so much stupidity recently. Thanks for the laugh. You are not going to get any kind of visa to US. Ever. Just forget it. No one wants to let in a convicted thief, let alone one who got caught four times and still has the gall to try again. Please stop and quit ruining the reputation of the honest students who are trying to fulfill their dreams.

    And even if I leave alone all these fiasco, your English is so appalling that it makes me wonder whether you have passed secondary or not. “I have rejected my F1 visa 4 times”?!? No wonder you are too stupid to realize that actions have consequences.

    I think that this candidate should actually start preparing sincerely for some other country because I have read in several government websites as well as other private blogs that though the people in the US believe in second chances they absolutely HATE cheating and fraud. Even getting accepted by universities could become very very tough for this person let alone getting the visa approved. And this tactic could even have a completely nullified his chances of ever getting even a travel visa into the US. I hope he learns from his mistake atleast now and spreads the word about the uselessness of such “consultancies” to his friends.

    i am shocked!
    firstly,when they gave you the fake docs didn’t you notice it and ask them what could happen later.
    secondly, did you or did you not do your homework about the consequences of producing the fake docs?
    i mean, what were you thinking man?
    now although you can apply for n number of times for a visa i don’t think you will land up on the higher note of receiving one..anyway please do not submit fake ones and try to be as distinct as possible.
    again, don’t loose hope!
    all the best

    This fake document thing is exactly what has screwed up the reputation of Indians in USA.
    Look at this amazing post by hsb some time back. Also read the comments to see how people reacted to it. Some people got abusive too.

    As for this candidate, I am sure he is done for his life for America. I don’t think he can get a B2 now, forget B1/F1/H1 etc.

    btw, because everyone does it is no valid reason to do fraud. I still remember the golden line from my MA driver’s manual saying something like, “When pulled over, you can’t tell the officer that other people were also doing the same wrong this as you or other people were driving faster than you”

    This plea about honesty is ridiculous. If you were to be honest and could still get a visa, why would you lie in the first place. People cheat because honesty wont get them what they want.

        I m trying to see his perspective. He used fake documents because he thought originals wont get him a visa which is wrong. Unless you want to get flagged.

          That way it might be OK for
          – someone to rape a girl coz he can’t get a gf?
          – someone to steal money coz they can’t earn?
          – someone to put their bag in the bus from the window to get a seat coz they came late?

          @Vish – Yawn !!

  7. Ash on June 17, 2013 at 2:55 PM

    yeah .. the probability of you getting in decreases drastically with something like this. At the moment the only advice I can give you is that next time you apply and if your asked about the fake documents – give them honest/ blunt answers. More often than not beating around the bush causes a lot of misunderstandings and thats the reason why Visa’s are denied. All the best. I would apply one last time if I were you.

    It’s not like, he is the only one. When I came to US, I talked with my class mates from Hydrabad, they said it is common and most preferable way in A.P to apply for MS. Fake financials, Fake recommendations etc. Those consultancy have rubber stamps for every local university so students don’t have to go to college to get any documents. Believe me, it is really common scenario in A.P.
    After listening all that i was pissed. I remembered all the heck I had gone through to get each document. :X

    A big ‘NO AMERICA’ for the rest of his life.His name might have been black listed on their database.A small piece of advise from my personal experience is that be honest and never try to outsmart the VO. If you give an honest and confident impression,then they don’t even bother to look at your documents.
    They never tolerate fraudulence.

      Always be honest–the Consular officer will know.

    The sign board in the picture should say, “DON’T DO IT”. Now it looks as though it is alright to fake documents so long as you don’t get caught. Just don’t do it. If you want to go to the U.S. so badly, put in the effort. Get decent grades in your academic work, a good GRE and TOEFL score, and Voila! you are in. As simple as that. If you think that you can’t afford it, and that you are not likely to get some assistantship after a semester or two, try a country where university education is cheaper, like Germany. Once you have a degree from a European country it would be easier to get a visa to the U.S.
    By the way, not too many people here seem to have checked out Erasmus Mundus. Check their website.
