Pakistanis give fake polio certificates for Indian visa

LAHORE

The Indian High Commission, which has declared polio vaccination mandatory for Pakistanis submitting visa applications, has alleged that a number of applicants have filed “fake certificates” reports Pakistan Today.

The commission has been rejecting the applications submitted with such certificates and may impose a permanent ban on the applicants involved as per a statement. The commission said that detection of a forged document would result in summary rejection of the visa application and permanent denial of visa for future travel as well. It advised the applicants to comply with the polio certification requirements.

The Indian high commission had informed Pakistan’s foreign ministry in December that being a polio-free country India had decided to declare polio certificates mandatory for visiting the country. It had declared that after Jan 30, visa applications would not be accepted without such certificates.
