Bali Guide Association Calls for Raids Against Illegal Guides to be Intensified

(6/29/2012)

The Bali Chapter of the Indonesian Guide Association (HPI-Bali) has declared its hope that raids against illegal guides working on the island will continue and be intensified to eliminate the large number of unlicensed guides.

Quoted by Seputarbali.com, the spokesman for HPI-Bali, Amos Lilo, said: “I hope the raids can continue because (the illegal guides) have caused unrest in the ranks of our profession and damaged the image of Bali tourism. This needs to be done to bring order to Bali tourism.”

Lilo said that surprise raids against illegal guides have only take place one time so far in 2012. That raid performed in late May 2012 caught 34 illegal guides working at several tourist attractions. Those caught were Bali residents who are still being processed through the courts.

Also netted in the raid was one foreigner, a German national, who was handed to immigration authorities for further handling.

The HPI-Bali is consolidating its effort to eliminate illegal guides with other tourism organizations in Bali.

Lilo said that the prime target of illegal guides in Bali remains Chinese tourists. Lilo estimates that 30% of the 5,265 guides estimated to be working in Bali are illegal and unregistered.
