(9/4/2011)

Waves of people returning from the Lebaran holidays and “newcomer” aspiring  residency on the island  have been arriving in Bali since Saturday, September 3, 2011.

Both vehicles and passengers stood in growing lines at inspection points the Gilimanuk entry port for the Java ferry. Representatives of the Population Service (Dinas Kependudukan), local enforcement authorities from Jembrana (Satpol PP) and members of the armed forces were manning checkpoints to review identity papers.

During a single day, a total 29 people were found in violation of local residency rules for Bali. 14 were holding expired identity cards (KTP) and 15 had no KTP at all to show officials. 16 of the 29 violators were refused entry and placed back on board the boat headed to Java.

Meanwhile, on Bali’s eastern ferry approach at Padang Bai, a similar combined enforcement force was busily checking the identity papers of passengers disembarking from Lombok.

Quoted in Bali Post, the chief of the police sector at the port of Padang Bai, AKP Dewa Ketut Nila Candra, said, “We are strictly checking to prevent people from entering Bali with unclear personal identities.” He said that most violations regarding identity papers were minor infractions, the inspections would continue to keep “undesirables” from entering Bali.

Candra said that in the first two days of inspections only two violations were discovered at the Padang Bai checkpoint. He said most people failing to present ID cards claim they lost their card to a pickpocket while traveling to Bali while others straightforwardly admit they have no KTP to show.

Saying whatever the reason given for not having a KTP, violators would be returned to Lembar (Lombok) on the next ferry.

Police also had smaller traditional ports used by local boats under intelligence surveillance to close opportunities for people trying to smuggle themselves into Bali.
