BEIJING, Jan. 27 (Xinhua) -- An American man with a counterfeit China visa was caught by police at Beijing International Airport on Monday, the first day of the Chinese Lunar New Year, airport authorities said Tuesday.

The man in his forties was found to have a passport with a forged visa and two fabricated entry-exit inspection and quarantine seals when he checked in at the T3 Terminal, a Beijing General Station of Exit and Entry Frontier Inspection official said.

The man was fined 2,000 yuan (292 U.S. dollars) and was deported from China.

The police also caught two Chinese stowaways who planned to go abroad on Monday afternoon.
