"We continue to strengthen the labor inspection system in 2017 and 2018," said Minister of National Development Planning / Head of Bappenas Bambang PS. Brodjonegoro in the 2016 Development and Expectations Development Discussion 2017, at the Bappenas office, Jakarta, last weekend.

Director of Manpower of Bappenas Maliki explained that the cooperation of Bappenas is done together with Kemnaker to anticipate the rise of foreign workers entering Indonesia.

He said the massive entry of foreign workers and workers of China to Indonesia by using visa-free facilities, of course, need to go through foreign labor registration procedures in Kemnaker.

According to Maliki, this implementation is monitored through labor inspection in the same Ministry.

In fact, the related agencies are intensely now performing a sudden inspection (sidak) to check the completeness of documents owned by foreign workers who enter Indonesia.

"I hear they are now quite aggressive in conducting a sudden inspection (sidak) related to the completeness of this document," said Maliki.

He added that according to the regulations in force in Indonesia any violation by foreign tourists in Indonesia, especially in the use of visa-free facilities, the Indonesian government will revoke the documents of foreign tourists.

"Yes, the IMTA must be revoked The hiring company is given a criminal offense if the requirements are incomplete, but I have not received any relevant updates," Maliki explained.
