One of the most common reasons for deportation is for violating the period of stay specified on your visa. If you are in Bali after your visa has expired, you may be detained and deported.
Any violation of immigration rules, such as providing false information when obtaining a visa, can also lead to deportation.
If you are in Bali as a tourist and exceed the maximum permitted stay (60 days), you may be fined and deported. Please note that the visa must be extended after the first month of stay on the island. It is important to monitor the validity of your visa and renew it if necessary. If you want to know more about visas on the island, read our article
. Work without permission
As we have already mentioned, working in Bali without the necessary permit is also against the law. Recently, Bali even started putting up posters stating that tourists should not work on the island illegally.
Doing business in Bali without the appropriate permit is also against the law. This includes work related to renting out real estate, opening a restaurant or store, and other commercial activities. Crimes
Committing criminal offenses, including drug trafficking, can lead to detention and deportation. Indonesian laws are very strict regarding drugs, and penalties can be very severe, including the death penalty. Therefore, do not sell or buy prohibited substances under any circumstances.
Any involvement in illegal activities such as gambling, prostitution or trafficking in contraband may result in deportation and criminal prosecution. Public riots
Participation in public disturbances can also lead to deportation. Indonesian authorities are committed to maintaining public order and security.
Insulting local residents, fighting or vandalism can lead to detention and deportation. Unfortunately, recently cases of fights have become more frequent. And if a tourist gets away with a fine for a fight with a foreigner, then for a fight with a local resident the problems can be much more serious. We recommend resolving any conflicts peacefully to avoid getting into an unpleasant situation. Violation of moral and cultural norms
Indonesia is a country with deep cultural and religious traditions. Inappropriate behavior that violates these standards may result in deportation. This may include insulting religion, obscene behavior, or disrespect for local customs. What are the consequences of breaking the law?
You may be prohibited from entering or staying in Indonesia. And in some cases forever - it depends on the severity of your crime. In addition, you may be placed on a list of undesirable persons, which will make it difficult for you to enter other countries. Also, in case of criminal offences, you will be subject to punishment in accordance with Indonesian laws, which may include imprisonment.
