Several staff members of a travel agency in Oran, Algeria, have been arrested for forging Schengen Visas.
Schengen Visa Info reports police have seized several passports that belonged to people who fell victim to the travel agency that promised them visas.
Authorities reportedly also recovered other devices such as computer equipment, smartphones, a scanner and phone chips.
Schengen Visa Info reports that last year another network specialising in the trafficking of visas, was caught by police in Oran.
As the Schengen Visa is one of the world’s most sought-after and most powerful visas, criminals often establish structures for falsifying them.
