Sub-coordinator of Public Relations of the Directorate General of Immigration I Achmad Nur Saleh, said the sanctions given to foreigners refer to Law Number 6 of 2011 about Immigration. Article 75 states that Immigration Officials are authorized to carry out Immigration Administrative Actions against Foreigners in Indonesia who carry out dangerous activities and are reasonably suspected of endangering public security and order, or do not respect or disobey the laws and regulations.
Based on Law Number 6 of 2011 about Immigration, deportation is a forced act of removing a Foreign National from Indonesian Territory. Deportation sanctions can be given to foreign nationals (WNA) for various reasons, such as overstaying more than 60 days, allegedly carrying out dangerous activities and endangering security so as to disturb public order.
On Saturday, May 6, 2023, the Immigration Office Class II TPI Singaraja deported two Russian citizens with initials SN and IN at Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport after committing violations of custom and order by posing dancing and wearing indecent clothes at Penguben Besakih Temple, Karangasem, Bali. This action violates Article 75 paragraph (1) of Law Number 6 of 2011.
This immigration administrative action is a real form of immigration law enforcement in the working area of the Immigration office Class II TPI Singaraja. The implementation of departure supervision for the two foreigners runs safely, orderly and smoothly, by prioritizing humane law enforcement.
Then, for foreigners who overstay for less than 60 days will be sanctioned in the form of a fine of Rp1,000,000 per day. If foreigners do not pay the fine, they will be subject to deportation and deterrence. Provisions regarding overstay sanctions are contained in Article 78 of the Immigration Law.
“The provisions for overstay sanctions are contained in Article 78 of the Immigration Law. Costs arising from deportation proceedings shall be charged to the foreign guarantor, as described in Article 63. However, if you do not have a guarantor, the fee is charged to the Foreigner and if you can’t afford it, then to his family. If the family is also incapable, it is charged to the representative of the country. Achmad Nur Saleh explained
