Authorities this morning deported a Russian woman, identified as Iuliia Mamaev, for illegally working as a medical aesthetician during her stay in Bali.
According to the Bali office of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, which handles immigration-related matters, Mamaev entered Indonesia through Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport on a visa on arrival in February, meaning she was not permitted to work during her stay.
“She was deported early Tuesday morning. She violated the terms of her visa, which was just a visa on arrival, yet she opened an aesthetician practice in Mengwi, Badung,” ministry spokesman Surya Dharma said today.
For her violations under Indonesia’s Immigration Law, Mamaev was deported and has been banned from entering Indonesia for the next six months.
It’s not immediately clear if she’s a medically licensed aesthetician in her home country.
Mamaev was the latest Russian national to be deported from Indonesia for administrative violations in Bali. According to the Ministry of Law and Human Rights data, in the first half of 2020, citizens from the transcontinental nation dominated Bali’s deportation list.
Among other Russians to be nabbed by authorities include Russian yoga instructors Rodion Antonkin and Albina Mukhamadullina, who were recently deported to their home country for holding a mass yoga session sans COVID-19 health protocols at a villa in Ubud in the middle of July.
In mid-July, a Russian tourist was detained for taking shelter around the premises of Ngurah Rai Airport, saying that he had been stranded on the island for the past month. He was scheduled for deportation after authorities in Bali coordinated with the Russian Consulate.
