Thus was said by the Head of Sub Directorate of Distribution and Cooperation Systems, Rohadi Iman Santo so, in the Office of Ngurah Rai International Airport, Denpasar Bali not long ago.

Furthermore, he explained with a cashless payment system all transactions would go straight to the account. In this case, the Immigration Office all the times attempted to reduce the likelihood of fraud risk. When using a cash payment transactions the possibility of fund embezzlement was large enough, including when using the vouchers. “We have confidence all foreigners have a credit or ATM card, so there is no problem about the payment of immigration, “ he said.
