MOSCOW, July 30. /Itar-Tass /. A tourist from France that appeared to be female, according to his passport, came back home on July 26, as reported by the Embassy of France in Moscow.
Patrick Samborski arrived in Russia last week, on Thursday’s night, and has been detained in the airport, as in his passport and visa was indicated that he is a woman, not a man. The man himself assured that he was not aware of this mistake and travelled with his passport many times to Russia, Ukraine and the U.S. never facing any kind of problems.
“The representatives of French consulate immediately contacted Russian authorities and were closely interacting the whole day through, but we cannot influence the decisions of customs officers,” French Embassy representative said.
“The citizen of France with a mistake in his visa has returned to France on the evening of July 26,” the spokesperson confirmed.
Earlier, the media reported that the man ‘got stuck’ in Sheremetyevo.
The French consulate cannot tell if Patrick Samborski is going to come back to Moscow after his corrected passport is reissued.
