A foreign national with the initials DMDG (aged 56) from the Netherlands has been deported for operating a digital business in Bali.
The Head of the Singaraja Immigration Office Class II, Nanang Mustofa, confirmed that the Dutch man was deported for operating a digital business without a proper visa during his stay in Bunutan Village Abang, Karangasem.
“The Dutch man kept operating his digital business despite knowing it wasn’t allowed under his current visa,” Nanang said on Sunday (23/1).
The authorities received information regarding DMDG’s activity during a regular inspection conducted by Singaraja Immigration Officers. They were informed that DMDG has been making a profit from his digital business by creating websites for his clients during his stay in Karangasem.
Shortly after, officers interviewed DMDG and checked his legal documents. They discovered that DMDG has been staying with his Temporary Resident Card (KITAS), which will expire on December 23rd 2022.
“As a KITAS holder, he wasn’t allowed to operate a business in Bali, so we had to deport him for violating Article 75 Number 1 of the Indonesian Constitution Number 6 about Immigration,” Nanang concluded.
Nanang warned all expats to comply with Indonesia’s regulations during their stay in Bali.
