Bali immigration officers have deported two Russian nationals for faking their personal information to extend their visas.
The Head of Denpasar Immigration Office Class I, Tedy Riyandi, confirmed that two Russian nationals identified as IB (aged 30) and AP (aged 26) were officially deported from Bali Airport for faking their personal information while filling out the immigration form.
They did this to illegally extend their visa in Bali.
“After being detained for several days, they were finally deported from Bali on Saturday (26/2) through Ngurah Rai Airport,” Tedy said during the press conference on Sunday (27/2).
Both expats were caught by the immigration officer when they attempted to extend their visa at the Immigration office on Tuesday (22/2).
“When we checked their forms from the online application, we found out that they didn’t match with the data in our system,” Tedy added. After conducting an investigation, the official proved that all the information provided by both expats was fake.
Both expats were immediately held at the Immigration detention house before being deported to Moscow with Singapore Airlines on Saturday at 8:15 pm.
