More than 31,000 newcomers were recorded in Jakarta following the long Idul Fitri holiday.

The data was collected by the Jakarta Population and Civil Registry Agency. 

“The data recorded as of June 25 shows there are 31,061 non-permanent residents. Non-permanent ,meaning that they hold ID cards registered in other regions,” said the agency’s acting head, Dhany Sukma, on Friday as quoted by kompas.com.

Dhany added that the agency was determining the various reasons for the moves. 

Data collection from population management services is still ongoing, he said.  

Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan previously stated that the capital welcomed anyone who wanted to try their luck. 

Anies urged newcomers to come with experience and skills as well as register with the Health Care and Social Security Agency (BPJS Kesehatan). (tru)
