Durian. The Ngurah Rai Immigration office in Bali will soon deport three foreign nationals, after finding them violating Covid-19 health protocol, Indonesia’s Directorate General of Immigration spokesperson Arya Pradhana Anggakara said on July 9.
He said the three individuals — an Irish man M. R. (26), an American woman A. A. (22) and a Russian woman Z. K. (26) — were caught by Covid-19 Task Force for violating health protocol, during Covid-19 restrictions checking.
The Indonesian government imposes the emergency restrictions on community activities since July 3 for Java and Bali Islands and it will be ended on July 20. However, Bali provincial government decided to start imposing the emergency restrictions earlier than other provinces, which was on July 1.
The provincial government has warned foreign nationals who are living on the popular tourist destination Island that they will be deported immediately when found violating health protocol during the emergency restrictions.
Previously, violating health protocol was fined for one million rupiah or about $84.
According to Anggakara, all foreign nationals who are now staying Indonesia must follow the health protocol measures.
