On Thursday (November 5), a woman with a Moroccan nationality had to be taken to the Ngurah Rai TPI Special Class I Immigration Office for further information. This is because woman who live in the Kuta area cannot show her travel document (passport) and residence permit document during the operation of the Joint Foreigner Monitoring Team (Timpora). Based on the results of the operation, this woman argued that her passport was still in the travel agent that invited her.
“From the results of the joint operation carried out in the Kuta area, it was found that one foreigner could not show a travel document (passport) and a residence permit document. She said that her passport was on her travel agent,” said the Head of Class I Office of Immigration Communication and Facilities of Ngurah Rai, Putu Suhendra.
