A Canadian national with initials YB has been deported by Immigration Officers for overstaying in Bali.

The Head of the Singaraja Immigration Office Class II, Nanang Mustofa confirmed that YB was deported through the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Jakarta on Saturday (2/10) for violating Indonesian Immigration rules. “The expat who has married local women twice in Bali was finally deported for staying with an expired visa for over 100 days in Bali.” Nanang said on Sunday (3/10).

Prior to the deportation, YB had married the first Balinese woman which made him automatically receive a ‘Limited Temporary Residence Card’ as a staying permit. After divorcing his ex-wife, YB married another local woman from Jembrana in 2020. “His second marriage was only a religious marriage, so it wasn’t officially recorded by the Indonesian government. So he remained staying with a visitors visa that he received onshore which expired the 3rd of July 2021.” Nanang added.

After receiving information from local residents regarding his illegal stay, YB was finally detained by Immigration officers on September 27th 2021. Meanwhile the Head of Bali Law and Human Rights Minister, Jamaruli Manihuruk stated that Bali Officials have committed to increase their supervision to foreign nationals who have been staying on the island, especially during the current Covid-19 pandemic. YB was deported and escorted by Immigration officers with strict prevention protocols.

Normally, marriage should be a reason for unlimited right of residence.

The woman should rush immediately to the Canadian Embassy and demand her legal rights in Canada as the spouse of a Canadian citizen. Not only can she apply for permanent residence status which includes the right to sponsor her entire family, but also sue to attach her legal share of his income and assets under Canadian Family Law. This is a lottery win for her. Even if he has nothing she can sue for alimony and child support if she has any, even if they’re not his biological issue….and attach any income he might have from current and or future employment or investment. I remind you reader of the famous DHL case where a Phillipino prostitute sued the CEO/Founder for support and child support for the “ love child” she produced . In a German court their ‘relationship was recognized as common law and the child became heir to the German mans entire estate. DHL man subsequently died and the majority stake in DHL passed to the prostitute . People, ladies and gentlemen, ( lots of ladies have entered legal territory with their Kuta Cowboys toys unwittingly) that countries have made bilateral agreements regarding such things. Just because you think it’s glorious to “pretend” with a little brown lover, that the dalliance can’t follow you home.

@J West, it was a religious marriage, NOT a legal marriage.

@J West, you seemed to be a pro in mixed racial marital situation. There are sone Indonesian women who do not want to live abroad with their foreign husbands. Just because a bule comes along it opens the door for a better life for Asian women, but there is an exception to that narrow minded mentality.
