Over 700 Indian students are facing deportation from Canada after the Canadian authorities found their admission offer letters to be fake. The students received deportation letters from the Canadian Border Security Agency (CBSA) after the agency examined the documents based on which visas were issued to the students and found the admission offer letters to be false.
Reports suggest that the students had applied for study visas via Education Migration Services, located in Jalandhar and headed by Brijesh Mishra, who charged more than Rs 16 lakh ($19,400) per student for all expenses, including admission fees to prestigious Humber College but excluding air tickets and security deposits.
These students had gone to Canada on a study abroad basis in 2018–19. Most of the students had already completed their studies, received work permits, and gained work experience. The fraud came to light when these students applied for permanent residency in Canada and their admission offer letters came under scrutiny.
The students now face the possibility of deportation from Canada, leaving them in a difficult situation. Experts suggest that this may have a significant impact on their future career prospects.
The incident highlights the need for students to be cautious when applying for study visas and to ensure that all documents are genuine. It is also a reminder that fraudulent activities can have serious consequences and that those who engage in them will be held accountable. The students now face an uncertain future, and their plight serves as a reminder that caution and diligence are essential when it comes to international study.
