Jakarta – Many Indonesian migrant workers are attracted to work in Saudi Arabia because in this country only need an Umrah or pilgrimage visa to work. Unfortunately, both countries employ them non-procedurally and without official documents, according to the Indonesian Migrant Workers Protection Agency (BP2MI).

In addition, many Indonesian workers choose to work in Malaysia because the country has many border entry points with Indonesia, making it easier for migrant workers to enter without official documents.

“This status (without official documents) makes the position of Indonesians vulnerable in the destination country,” said the Director of Protection of Indonesian Citizens and BHI at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Judha Nugraha in Jakarta, on Thursday.
