Three Russian women who entered Indonesia using business and tourist visas were recently arrested and deported by immigration authorities in Bali, who say they were sex workers offering their services on the Island of Gods.
The women were identified by their initials VS, IL, and TE.
The Director of the Immigration Office of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, Silmy Karim, said in a statement made available over the weekend that the authorities received a tip-off about “suspicious activities” at a villa in Seminyak.
“The officers later came to the site and caught three couples [consisting of] Indonesians and Russians,” Silmy said Saturday.
After further investigation, immigration learned that VS, TE, and IL were sex workers. The first two obtained business visas, while IL entered Indonesia by obtaining a visa on arrival (VOA).
The three were deported on Friday and were banned from returning to Indonesia. They reportedly boarded a Turkish Airline flight to their home country via Istanbul on Friday evening.
It was unclear what happened to the Indonesians who were caught at the same villa.
