The Bali immigration authority said it is preparing to deport two Tanzanian nationals for overstaying their visa.
“The foreign nationals will be deported. They have been blacklisted because they have overstayed their visa by more than 60 days, in accordance with Law No. 6/2011 on Immigration,” Head of the Office of Law and Human Rights Ministry in Bali Jamaruli Manihuruk informed in a press statement released on Wednesday.
The two Tanzanians, identified as Glory Pius Nanai and Galinda Kiril Valchev, have not yet been deported because they have not obtained air tickets to their country of origin, he explained.
Currently, Nanai and her six-month old infant are being held in custody in Denpasar, Bali, he said.
Nanai could not return home since she ran out of money, he added. She spent the money to give birth to her child, he said.
“She entered (Indonesia) on a visa waiver in early 2020, She has overstayed for nearly 500 days. She came to Bali for a vacation. She was trapped due to the pandemic. She ran out of money because she gave birth to a child. She wants to return home, but she has no money left and there is no flight,” he said. (ANT)
