VOINews, Jakarta: The Ngurah Rai Immigration Office has prepared special arrangements in the form of providing mobile devices to facilitate immigration inspection services for delegations attending the 10th World Water Forum on May 18-25, 2024.

"We have carried out mapping and placement of officers," Head of Ngurah Rai Immigration, Suhendra, stated in Denpasar, Bali, Saturday.

He explained that several inspection mechanisms had been put in place for immigration checks on delegates.

For the head of state level, immigration checks are conducted at the VVIP Building of Ngurah Rai International Airport, while for ministerial delegations at the VIP building and for other delegations at the international arrivals terminal.

Another preparation made was installing several signboards at strategic points to facilitate the arrival of delegates via a special route at the arrival terminal.

"I think we are already on track in preparing to welcome the World Water Forum delegation, and we will continue to monitor developments in the situation and conditions in the field," he remarked.

Ngurah Rai Immigration has also separated the arrival routes for World Water Forum delegates and regular passengers in the immigration area.

Three special counters served by 12 officers are prepared for World Water Forum delegates.

"For regular passengers, we have prepared 30 autogate units and 10 inspection counters with 40 officers," he revealed.

The autogate facility is expected to speed up the flow of arrivals of delegates and non-delegate international travelers.

The automatic facility is able to cut the duration of immigration checks, from several minutes to 15 to 25 seconds per traveler.

On the other hand, the immigration is also installing 30 additional autogate units at the international arrival terminal of Ngurah Rai Airport that is targeted for completion in August 2024.

Not only at the international arrival terminal but the immigration also plans to install 20 additional autogates at the international departure terminal, so that a total of 80 autogate units will be activated at Ngurah Rai Airport in Bali.

Currently, autogate can be used by Indonesian citizens for all types of passports, both regular and electronic.
Meanwhile, for foreign national travelers, namely those who have electronic passports, holders of electronic visit visas on arrival (E-VoA) and electronic visas (E-Visa).

Moreover, foreigners having a Limited Stay Permit Card (KITAS), Permanent Stay Permit Card (KITAP), as well as foreigners from countries subject to visa-free visits (BVK), namely ASEAN, have registered on the page of evisa.imigration.go.id.

The 10th World Water Forum scheduled on May 18-25, 2024, is expected to be attended by around 35 thousand participants from 193 countries around the world.ANTARA/VOI
