>fake visas fail to wake up authorities

>DUBAI-bound Bangladeshi jobseekers are being scammed with fake visas more than ever, but the authorities are yet to take any effective measure to remedy the situation.
This ill practice came to the forefront again on Monday when a staggering 87 Bangladeshi jobseekers were deported from Dubai Airport as the immigration authorities found their visas to be fake, Porimol Palma writes.
“This sort of case is not new. Some workers are deported every week from Dubai for similar reasons,” said an immigration police officer at Zia International Airport in Dhaka. Only when a large number of workers are deported, it catches the attention of the media, he added.
Abdul Malek, director general of Bureau of Manpower Employment and Training (BMET), said the United Arab Emirates (UAE) issues “photocopy visas” and the BMET does not have any way to verify the authenticity of the visas.
