<< Indonesian immigration developing QR code tech to monitor movement of foreigners >> news from Coconuts

 

QR (quick response) codes have become ubiquitous in Indonesia in recent years, particularly in the use of e-payment systems, but the tech may soon be used for Black Mirror-esque surveillance of foreigners if the Immigration Office gets its wish.

QR近年來在印尼普遍存在,特別是在電子支付系統的使用方面,但如果移民局能夠實現其希望,該技術可
能很快將被用於對外國人進行黑鏡監控。

Speaking to the media yesterday, Immigration Director Ronny Franky Sompie said that the institution is developing a monitoring system for foreigners in Indonesia using the matrix barcode.

移民局局長Ronny Franky Sompie昨天在接受媒體採訪時說,該機構正在使用矩陣條形碼為印尼的外國人
開發監控系統。

“We are developing a QR code technology to be placed on the passports or visas of foreigners so we can monitor their movements,” Ronny said, as quoted by state news agency Antara.

“我們正在開發一種QR碼技術,可以放在外國人的護照或簽證上,這樣我們就可以監控他們的行動,
”Ronny說,正如國家新聞機構Antara所引述的那樣。

Ronny explained that hotels and transportation facilities will be given a special app to scan the QR codes, which will instantly relay information about the code holder’s whereabouts to a team tasked with monitoring foreigners in Immigration.

Ronny解釋說,酒店和交通設施將被提供一個特殊的應用程序來掃描QR碼,這將立即將有關代碼持有人的行踪的信息傳遞給負責監督移民局外國人的團隊。

“If a foreigner stays at a hotel or wherever else, the owner of the establishment can report [their stay] by scanning the QR code in their passport using an app on the smartphone. The data will be sent to the Immigration Office. If [a foreigner] books a train ticket, we can also track where they’re going [using the QR code],” he said.

“如果外國人住在酒店或其他任何地方,企業的所有者可以使用智能手機上的應用程序掃描護照中的二維
碼來報告[他們的住宿]。數據將發送給移民局。如果[外國人]預訂火車票,我們也可以使用二維碼跟踪
他們的去向,“他說。

Ronny said Immigration has advised the government to issue a Perpres (Presidential Decree) to give legal justification for the new surveillance technology. He did not say how close to being implemented the QR code system is on either the legal or technological development fronts.

羅尼表示,移民局已建議政府頒布Perpres(總統令),為新的監控技術提供法律依據。他沒有說明QR
碼系統在法律或技術發展方面的實施有多接近。

Foreigners already have to carry and show their passports when checking in at hotels or for train trips and flights, with the passport often photocopied for record keeping purposes. The proposed QR code tech would presumably speed up any process of accommodation establishments and public transportation facilities in sharing information that could map out the movement of foreigners with the government.

外國人在辦理入住手續或火車旅行和航班時必須攜帶並出示護照,護照經常複印以備記錄。擬議的二維
碼技術可能會加快住宿設施和公共交通設施的任何過程,共享信息,可以繪製出外國人與政府的關係。

The tech was actually teased by the Immigration Office back in January, who said then that it would be used to monitor not only tourists, but also foreigners residing in Indonesia.

事實上,1月份移民局對這項技術進行了嘲笑,當時他說,它不僅可以用來監控遊客,還可以用來監視居
住在印度尼西亞的外國人。

Immigration said they wanted to develop a more practical system to monitor foreigners on the back of having sanctioned 4,672 foreigners in the form of deportation and/or fine for overstaying throughout 2018.

移民局表示,他們希望制定一個更實際的監督外國人的製度,因為在整個2018年,他們已經以驅逐和/或
罰款的形式批准了4,672名外國人。
