Indians lying to get student visas for New Zealand

Wellington, Nov 23 (IANS) New Zealand immigration officials have received many fraudulent applications from Indian students for visas to study in the country, a media report said.

The would-be students from India are lying in their immigration applications and misrepresenting their financial situation in order to get student visas, Immigration New Zealand’s India office said on Sunday.

According to Radio New Zealand, the laws require that students should prove they have enough money to finance their studies in New Zealand.

Indian students who arrived with too little money were at risk of exploitation that could harm the reputation of New Zealand as an education destination for foreign students, the department noted.
