The Bali Immigration Office deported 140 people in 2013 for failure to have complete documentation, non-compliance with immigration rules and violations of the law.
The head of the Bali Immigration Office, Drs. I Gusti Kompiang Adnyana, told The Bali Post that the number of foreigners deported from Bali is small in comparison the more than 3 million foreign visitors who came to the Island last year.
In order to enhance service to the public, the Bali immigration office is now providing the following services:
- One Stop Service: Indonesian citizens seeking a new or renewed passport now only need to queue a single time to surrender data and supporting documents, submit to an interview and have a biometric photo taken. A new E-passport will be ready for pick up three days later.
- Immigration Service on Board: Passengers flying Garuda Indonesia to Bali from Tokyo or Sydney will have their visa issued during the flight, eliminating lines at immigration on arrival.
- Immigration Serviceon Board Cruise Ships: A similar on board immigration service is offered to cruise ships calling at the ports of Benoa, Tanah Ampo and Celukan Bawang.
