I am not sure if this is a civil av. topic (having to do with travel), or if it should be moved to Non-Av... Mods, feel free to make the decision

At the Santo Domingo airport in the Dominican Republic, a foreign visitor makes his way through the Immigration line. An agent swipes his passport through the computer. Everything checks out. The official stamps the passport. Another tourist has entered the country. In this case, though, the traveler is not who he appears to be. He is an undercover investigator. His passport is real, but it has been issued under a false identity. He has just demonstrated how easy it is to obtain and use fraudulent travel documents.

It seems like fake passports could be allowing potential terrorists into the country. Which leads me to ask, was Mohammad Atta his real name?

What if there are people on the No-Fly list, and they get a fake passport?

What is everyone else's opinion on this?

Well, I don't know what to think. That being said, my fake one is pretty inconspicuous.

I've been wondering...Could I get a fake extraterrestrial passport and ID?
