The Head of the Ngurah Rai Immigration Office Class I, I Nyoman Gede Surya Mataram, confirmed that EEA was detained for violating immigration policy by overstaying in Bali for over two years.

Furthermore, the suspect allegedly used a fake Covid test document on his last flight from Soekarno-Hatta Airport. “Our officials began suspecting EEA when he landed at Bali Airport on Saturday afternoon (5/3),” Mataram said on Tuesday (15/3).

The officials decided to conduct further document investigation after becoming suspicious with his Covid test document and his visa when he landed at Bali Airport.

After validation, they discovered that his Covid test document was real but his travel document was not. “The suspect was unable to show us his passport. Instead, he just showed us a card that he claimed was his passport,” Mataram added.

Shortly after, another official found out that the suspect had entered Indonesia on July 23rd 2019 with B211 visa, which expires after 30 days.

“The suspect was proven guilty for violating immigration policy, so we detained him at the Immigratiom detention house while the officials continue with the deportation process,” Mataram concluded.
