Permanent Ban from USA for Fake TOEFL Score
Yesterday HSB reader sent the following email.
My F1 visa interview was on 15th june at U.S. Chennai consulate.
I have a toefl score of 108 (not written by me).
VO had doubts. He then took my TOEFL score card, as my center in which I took test was blacklisted.
He permanently denied me from entering U.S.A.
He took all my documents inside (GRE, bank statements, other I-20’s, financial summary, b.tech degree) and returned to me.
Here’s another example with previous answers and Forged documents.
F1 Visa Rejected Due to Fake Documents
My F-1 visa (Student Visa) for USA, has rejected due to fake documents in 2007 and later I had traveled to UK as a student and been there for 2.5 yrs and at present I’m planing 4 USA again. Will I be noticed about my past rejection and will it affect this time.
Your Visa interview records are not like ETS GRE Scores, which will not be available after five years. Your answers to visa officers are stored forever.
Here’s an example of that:
During my second students visa interview, I was confident and was doing very good until I mentioned a different specialization subject (robotics and nanotechnology).
I never knew that they would be taking a feedback of every other visa interview we attend.
He asked me that “I mentioned Thermal Sciences” last time (which was just 8 days back) and what did you change your mind within a week?
Chances of getting Visa to the USA if you were denied Visa due to fake documents in your previous interview is very less (to nil).
You should have thought about legal problems or permanent ban to the USA when you decided to take TOEFL via agents or using false documents. There’s no point in worry when you are caught cheating. You decided to take the risk of using TOEFL Proxy agent, and you got caught. Now, you have to face the consequence of the mistake.
Same applies to using falsified documents. You certify that in DS-160 that information you are giving is correct. Don’t mess with U.S. Immigration and Visa interview.
