I'm not sure if we have posted this topic or not, but ..I will post it anyway....
A new regulation for foreigners who visit Jakarta. See below:
If you are a foreigner living in Jakarta, you will soon be required to
register with the Jakarta Population and Civil Registration Agency. Those who fail to register could face sanctions as the agency plans to conduct raids against people living in the capital without ID cards.
The city's new policy is based on Bylaw No. 4/2004 on Population and Civil Registration, which is an amendment of Bylaw No.1/1996 on Population Registration.
In the bylaw, the presence of foreigners is mentioned in at least seven articles and dozens of paragraphs.
Article 11 of the bylaw, for example, rules that foreigners, before
registering themselves with a subdistrict office, must report their
presence to the agency.
With the bylaw, a foreigner, particularly one who holds a Stay Permit
(KITAP), is entitled to a foreigners' identity card (KTP WNA) and a card
listing family members (KK), upon their registration with the agency.
Previously, the two documents were only for Indonesians.
Violators could face three months' imprisonment or a Rp 5 million
Registering with the agency adds to the long list of procedures for
foreigners who want to live and work in the city.
Currently, foreigners who live and work in Jakarta require documents issued by several offices including those dealing with immigration, tax, manpower and public order, as well as the police.
