28-year-old woman, Glory Pius Nanai from Tanzania has been detained by authorities for overstaying in Bali.
The Head of the Bali Law and Human Rights Minister, Jamaruli Manihuruk confirmed that Nanai was detained along with her 5-month-old baby. They were detained for overstaying in Bali without permission for more than 60 days after her visa expired. “Both of them were detained and brought to our detention house for allegedly violating our immigration rules by staying in Bali without extending their visa.” Jamaruli said on Wednesday (18/8).
According to the investigation, Nanai’s daughter was even born at one of the hospitals in Gianyar, Bali in March 2021. “During our investigation, we found that Nanai’s baby was born in Gianyar on the 2nd of March 2021. So we decided to detain them and bring them to the Immigration Detention House that is located on Jalan Raya Uluwatu Number 108, Jimbaran Badung and they will soon get deported from Bali.” Jamaruli added.
Apart from deportation, they will both be blacklisted and will be unable to gain access into Indonesia for a very long time. However, Jamaruli explained that the deportation process has been postponed as they are yet to receive their one way airplane ticket in order to go back to their home country in Tanzania.
