Foreigners Working Illegally in Baliís Tourism Sector as Guides, Drivers, Dive Guides and Surfing Instructors

(4/20/2014) The State News Agency Antara quotes a leading tourism observer, Drs. Wayan Sukamada, as calling on the government to take the sternest action against foreigners working illegally in Bali, particularly those working without permits in the tourism sector.

“There are foreigners who arrive and are recorded as tourists, but in reality are working in tourism, small industries and handicrafts,” complained Sukamada.

Sukamada, who once owned a travel agency in Bali, said he meets many foreign nationals in Bali who claim they are tourists but are actually working as guides for visitors from their home nation.

Many Russian tourists, he claims, are actually working in Bali as guides, drivers, diving instructors and surfing instructors providing such services to other Russian visitors.

Similar situations, he adds, are found in which Australians, Japanese, Chinese and Koreans are working illegally in Bali’s tourism trade.

Separately, Ketut Sudarma, a tourism driver based in Kuta, said this situation has existed for a long time.
