外國人在印度尼西亞有限的逗留簽證,超過你的簽證永遠不是一個好主意,但是你應該知道這樣做的罰款超過了昨天的三倍,這意味著即使你只是在幾天之後,你也會被罰款。

印度尼西亞移民局法律和人權部新法規於昨日生效,要求在印度尼西亞逾期居留的外國人每天被罰款100萬印尼盾(70美元),高於此前每天300,000印尼盾的罰款

“原因是對違反[印度尼西亞移民法]的外國人產生威懾作用。我們認為,對於逾期居留的外國人來說,之前的罰款金額為300,000印尼盾,對他們沒有給予足夠的威懾效果,“移民局公共關係和數據主管阿貢·桑普爾諾週二表示, Detik引用。

來自169個國家的國民目前可以免簽證訪問印度尼西亞30天,而另外61個國家的國民可以申請61個其他國家的抵達簽證(VoA)。

外國人在印度尼西亞的投訴遭到了高額罰款,一名比利時國民在周三告訴德蒂克,新規定尚未適當社交,他說他只是通過社交媒體上的論壇發現新的罰款。

Foreigners in Indonesia on limited stay visas, listen up. It’s never a good idea to overstay your visa, but you should know that the penalty for doing so more than tripled yesterday, meaning you’re in for a hefty fine even if you overstay just a few days.

A new regulation from Indonesia’s Directorate General of Immigration Ministry of Law and Human Rights went into effect yesterday requiring that foreign nationals who overstay in Indonesia be fined IDR1 million (US$70) per day, up from the previous fine of IDR 300,000 per day.

“The reason is to create a deterrent effect to foreigners who violate [Indonesia’s immigrations laws]. We felt that the previous amount of fine [for the overstay foreigners], IDR300,000, didn’t give enough deterrent effect for them,” said Agung Sampurno, the Directorate General of Immigration’s Public Relations and Data chief, said on Tuesday, as quoted by Detik.

The hefty fine has already been met with complaints by foreigners in Indonesia, with one Belgian national telling Detik on Wednesday that the new regulation has not been properly socialized, saying he only found out about the new fine through forums on social media.
