The Immigration and Emigration Department has arrested a young man at the Bandaranaike International Airport for attempting to travel to Europe via Ghana in Africa using a forged visa.

A 29-year-old youth from Batticaloa was arrested last night when he planning to board an Emirates flight bound to Dubai.

When he came to the Immigration Counter to show his visa to Dubai, there was a suspicion once the officers saw a visa to Ghana as well.

Upon further inspection, it was revealed that a broker at the Dubai airport had prepared the forged visa for him when he had visited Dubai on a previous occasion.

It was also revealed that the young man had been taken into custody by officials in Lesotho while trying to travel to Europe from Lesotho in Africa.

The Department of Immigration and Emigration has said that he has spent 6.3 million rupees for his travel documents to Europe via Ghana.
