Seaport Security Tightened

Police Keep Close Watch on Bali-Java Ferry Crossing.

(12/9/2002) In the nearly two months since the October 12th terror attack on a Bali nightspot, more than 8,000 people have been refused entry to Bali when trying to board the ferry service from Ketapang (Java) to Gilimanuk (Bali).

Those refused entry to Bali have been unable to produce valid identity cards or, for those intending to stay in Bali, demonstrate a viable source of employment on the island.

Police have also strengthened the presence of undercover police officers on both sides of the ferry crossing, seeking to prevent the entry of firearms and explosives.

All Indonesian adult citizens are required by law to possess a valid identity card (KTP) issued by the regional governments in their place of birth or residence.
