An official from immigration stated that the apprehended individual had three forged visa cards on him, from which two of them were copies of the latest visa cards. Immigration is yet to reveal the individual’s nationality.
Visa cards were renewed last year and in accordance with the official, various immigrants with forged visas of old versions were apprehended while the cases including the new version of visa cards are rare.
