The Jakarta Population and Civil Registration Agency has aired plans to launch raids on expatriates'€™ homes in Jakarta, following reports that many foreigners lack proper documents.

Agency head Edison Sianturi said the agency was currently mapping residential areas to target.

'€œWe will work together with local leaders to find out where foreigners without proper documents usually reside,'€ he said as quoted by kompas.com on Thursday.

The agency will work with related institutions, including the immigration office, the local police and the Jakarta Public Order Agency (Satpol PP) to carry out the raids.

On Tuesday, the Central Jakarta Immigration Office arrested five foreigners on Jl. Jaksa in Indonesia without proper documents. The next day, City Police arrested 33 Chinese nationals at a house in Pasar Minggu, South Jakarta, for allegedly carrying out cyber crimes.
