Understanding Passport Fraud
Most passport fraud cases are committed when an individual removes the original photo on a passport and adds a new photo. In some cases, individuals will remove the name of the person on the passport or tamper with passport authenticity itself. Other legal documentation may be tampered with in order to gain entry. Any removal or altercation of the passport is considered fraud.
There are a few different crimes that could be considered passport fraud, including:
- Illegal entry into the United States through deception
- Illegal entry in order to gain citizenship or legal residence status
- Individuals looking to gain entry into the United States to commit terrorist acts
- Avoiding the due process for legal entry granted to fugitives
