Police on the tourist island of Bali in Indonesia have deported and blacklisted three Russian travelers for prostitution at a local villa. The women were handed over by neighbors.
As previously reported, local authorities organized raids to catch foreign tourists violators. In particular, last week they received a signal from caring neighbors about “suspicious activity” in one of the villas and sent a police squad there with a check. “Based on information from the public, there has been suspicious activity at the villa in Seminyak. Law enforcement officers went there and successfully caught three Indonesians and the same number of foreign tourists,” said the head of the immigration service.
According to Indonesiaexpat, three Russian women aged 30 and 32 were among the detainees. They were arrested, taken into custody at the Immigration Center in Denpasar. The law enforcement officers proved the fact of prostitution. Last Friday, March 10, compatriots were deported through the airport I Gusti Ngurah Rai.
“The women took off at 9:05 am local time and were sent directly to Russia, but first went in transit to Turkey because they used the services of Turkish airlines,” said Angiat Napitupulu, head of the regional office of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights in Bali. At the same time, it is not known whether the compatriots really went further to Russia or went in a different direction.
It was clarified that two Russian women entered Indonesia on a tourist/social visa (index 211), the maximum stay within which is 180 days. If necessary, the visa can be extended directly in the country. Another has a visa on arrival (VoA). This visa is paid and must be renewed up to 3 times during your stay in the country – this is how it differs from the entry stamp. The maximum validity period is also 180 days.
In relation to foreign migrants, who have noticeably increased on the island last year, the authorities have become especially strict. “Our commitment to providing the best possible service to Indonesian and foreign tourists is certainly accompanied by law enforcement functions that are carried out in a humane manner, along with Timpora, the foreigner surveillance team. On the other hand, we invite volunteers to take part in ensuring the security of their place of residence, reporting any suspicions regarding the activities of foreigners,” said the representative of the immigration department.
