French Ambassador To Cameroon Says Cameroon Champions The List For Submitting Fake Documents In Visa Applications

French Ambassador Gilles Thibault and Cameroonian Bloggers

French Ambassador to Cameroon Gilles Thibault has revealed that 50% of Visa Applications  are compiled with fake documents.

Gilles Thibault was answering questions as to why the French Consulates rejects almost all Visa Applications for Cameroonians, during a hangout with Cameroonian Bloggers on Thursday March 30th 2017 at the French Cultural Institute Douala Cameroon.

The fake documents the Ambassador was talking about includes fake birth certificates, fake certificates or fake bank statements

According to him, Cameroon is one of the three African countries that CHAMPIONS this fraudulent act. He also said visa applications are rejected more in Cameroon, as compared to other countries like Burkina Faso, where 87% of visa applications are approved and granted.

Gilles Thibault said this disturbing situation was the reason why in concertation with their Belgian counterpart, they organised a seminar to reinforce the capacity of their staff on the detection of fake documents.

The Ambassador explained that all visa applications for France must transit all 26 Shengen countries, and that it suffices that one of these countries  gives you an unfavorable comment for you to be refused a visa.

Speaking about the bilateral relationship between Cameroon and France, Giles Thibault said 'Cameroon is the only country in Sub Saharan Africa, that has received the highest aide from France'.
