Indonesia to Introduce Law Requiring its Citizens to Register On Line When Going Abroad

The Jakarta Post reports that The Indonesian Foreign Ministry is preparing a regulation that will require Indonesians to register on line before travelling abroad.

The promised legislation and a website for reporting planned trips are scheduled to come into effect in August.

The desire to create a data base of all Indonesians traveling overseas is intended to help the government keep track of its nationals, particularly in strife-torn regions of the world such as Syria.
