This misrepresentation can include the altered or fake documents, like:
- Passports and travel documents
- Diplomas, degrees, and apprenticeship or trade papers
- Certificates of birth, marriage, final divorce, annulment, separation, or death and
- Police certificates
It would be best if you didn’t lie during the interview with an IRCC officer, as this also is considered a crime.
