Lisboa Airport: ten citizens intercepted

​During its daily activity, the Immigration and Borders Service (SEF) has detected, on 15 July, at Lisboa Airport, ten foreign nationals covered by different illegal situations.

Two women, calling from a light from Bolivia to Madrid, tried to board with false diplomatic passports.

During the documentary analysis, SEF inspectors have detected abnormal features within the documents, which led to suspicions.

In a more thorough analysis, it has been possible to perceive that the passports have been altered with the purpose to entering Spain without the necessary visa.

At Lisboa Airport as well, the entry to two passengers has been refused for not holding the supporting proof of the purpose and conditions of the stay.

In this day, six foreign nationals have been detected as well, under which the following cautionary measures were pending:

  • One person with an arrest warrant;
  • One person for whereabouts purpose;
  • One person for specific control;
  • Three persons for seizure of documents.
