Head of Immigration Class I Denpasar Wisnu Widayat said his party had made various efforts related to the supervision of foreigners.One of them is by forming Timpora at the sub-district level in accordance with the order of the Law on Supervision of Foreigners.The formation of Timpora in each sub-district to facilitate supervision of foreigners coming to Bali,said Wisnu Widayat. If there are individual tourists found to take actions that need to be taken action immediately reported to immigration. Later immigration will follow up.He argues that many foreign tourists who violate the law in Bali are one of the negative sides of giving visa-free visits, aka visa on arrivalHowever, this cannot be a problem because it has become a government decision. The point must be to increase supervision.Because tourists are given visa free for vacation, but some are misused. Like a recent robbery case, since January - March, Immigration had taken immigration administration to 14 foreign tourists,and immediately deported because the entry is in detention.
