SEF detects false passports at Porto Airport

​The Immigration and Borders Service (SEF) has detained, this Sunday, at Porto Airport, two foreign nationals for evidence of forgery of documents and illegally staying in the national territory.

The couple, intended to travel to the United Kingdom, has showed themselves at the border control with passports with strong evidence of forgery.

They have been brought before the Judicial Court of Maia, and their escort to the border has been determined. They are waiting for boarding at the Accommodation Unit of Santo António, and their removal from the national territory is scheduled within the next days.

Already at Lisboa Airport, during the weekend, SEF has detected nineteen cautionary measures: ten requests of whereabouts, six for seizure of documents and three cautionary measures for discreet check.
