According to the officials, new identity requirements are a part of visa application, which is nothing but the applicant should satisfy the minister of the identity. If the applicant visa is refused that means they are unable to satisfy the minister of the applicant’s identity.

Not only this, applicant family members who were listed are also not permitted for another visa until the applicant satisfies the PIC 4020 for 10 years. Applicants are not allowed to provide any fake documents for the visa application. If the applicant or any other family members of the applicant provides the fake documents, then they are not granted for visa for a period of 3 years.
