Passports are internationally regarded as credible, high quality travel and identification documents. Anyone who has undergone the process of applying for a passport knows that there is a strict application process that requires a range of supporting documentation such as a birth certificate and proof of citizenship.
It is no wonder criminals charge a high price for passport fraud. Fake passports have been linked to espionage, people smuggling, drug trafficking, identity theft and a range of other criminal activities.
The effects of fake passports continue to trouble governments today. On May 10th of 2018, U.S. officials uncovered a fraud scheme that allowed foreigners to enter the United States under false identities. It was discovered that around 700 people fraudulently obtained authentic Hungarian passports and assumed the identities of the original passport holders.
