TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Bogor Class 1 Immigration office on Tuesday reported that it relies on the IDN e-arrival card app to better monitor the mobility of foreign nationals (WNA) in Indonesia. This app is mainly meant to easily trackdown the traffic and activities of foreign tourists.
Head of the Bogor immigrations office Surjono said that the app is the office’s new strategy to police foreign nationals in the West Java province.
The e-arrival card is the project initiated by the West Java’s law and human rights branch office head, Dodi Heru Tjondro back in 2020.
People coming in from different countries are required to fill the IDN e-arrival card, which is available in Google’s Playstore, before continuing their journey on Indonesian soil which has complete real time personal data of the visitors throughout their stay in Indonesia.
