Fake passport checks being stepped up as people use Thailand to get into the West

TNA reported on their “Khap Khao” news program on the issue of people travelling with fake passports using Thailand to cover their tracks to the West.

Many were coming via Thailand on their way to the US, Canada, Australia, Europe and New Zealand.

TNA said that Interpol have stated that 53 million passports have been reported as missing.

Thailand as a travel hub is being increasingly used as a staging post for people holding fake travel documents.

So the authorities in Thailand are being trained to spot the fakes from the real.

As far as Asia goes the majority of people found with fake passports come from the Indian sub-continent with the Middle East a distant second.

A representative of the Division 2 Thai immigration explained that people who come via Thailand and not, say, directly from India have a better chance of being allowed in at their destination wherever that may be.

International agencies are keen to train and encourage the Thais how to stop them in Thailand.
