Filipina Tourists Discriminated in Bali, Indonesia

If you are a Filipino woman hoping to have a nice vacation in Bali, be careful.

Two Filipino tourists, one of them a blogger, suffered “rude and unfair” treatment “akin to racial profiling” at the hands of immigration officers in Bali, Indonesia, recently, a nonprofit organization said yesterday.

The Blas F. Ople Policy Center, which assists distressed overseas Filipinos workers, sought the help of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) in “obtaining justice” for the two Filipino women who were interrogated and bodily searched at the Bali airport.

“The Philippines and Indonesia share a deep and warm friendship. The unprofessional and unethical behavior of a few immigration agents in Bali towards Filipino tourists must immediately be corrected because it smacks of racial or ethnic profiling, something that is unexpected of a true friend like Indonesia,” said former Labor Undersecretary Susan Ople, head of the Ople Center.

Ople said the two women, who preferred to remain anonymous, went to Bali as tourists. But in the immigration line, they were singled out and ushered into the immigration office where they were subjected to a bag and body search “without justification.”

wow!  our asean neighbors can really be rude with us filipinos as i've experienced myself.  but then, even our own immigration officers can be just as rude with us.  and they shout.  at least, in other international airports, there's a room where questionable incoming passengers are brought for privacy.  in our country i've seen more than one foreigner (fellow asians, not whites) shouted down publicly.  we have a long way to go, too.     
Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment

racial profiling against their own race? how iconic. indonesians are malays; filipinos are malays. we are, genetically speaking, identical. remove the religion and the cultural practice, we both are one.

perhaps the indonesian immigration agents are used to catering to foreign (white) tourists and seeing a non-white tourist made them suspect something odd?


@ isles, you were treated disrespectfully diay? where did this happen? i'm sorry you had to experience that. when i was in nagoya, japan, i too saw the japanese immigration officers searching a chinese national who was in our flight. the immigration officer's reaction was observed after he saw the person's passport.
