DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – A Filipina, who was planning to return to the Philippines, was stopped by officials of the Philippine Consulate in Dubai when she tried to use a fake passport for her adopted child.

GMA News mentioned in an article published on May 27 that the Filipina’s husband allegedly bought the fake passport in the Philippines for P75,000 (Dh5,900).

Consul Ferdinand Flores revealed that the Filipina failed to apply for a genuine Philippine passport for her adopted kid as the whereabouts of the baby’s biological parents were now unknown. Flores further said the biological mother of the kid was an illegal resident in Dubai and had left the child with the foster mother a year ago.

The foster mother said she had tried but failed to contact the biological mother. Flores said no case was filed against the foster mother, however, he said that the consulate does not condone her actions.

“We immediately confiscated the passport and filed a report to the Dubai Police,” added Flores.

“The baby is still with the foster mum and fortunately, they went first to the consulate before they traveled lest they be held up in the immigration and the mother will be possibly charged with human trafficking,” the consul added as quoted by Angel Tesorero in her article for Khaleej Times.

Flores said their office had been receiving complaints of OFW using fake passports. The consul said there is a report of a Filipino expat who left a fake Philippine passport to his employer as a “guarantee” for his debts.

However, the expat not only submitted a fake Philippine passport but also furnished a falsified UAE residence visa stamped on the bogus passport. The Filipino expat allegedly left the country, using his real passport, leaving behind enormous debts.
