The palm-fringed area has vowed to crack down on misbehaving tourists after a series of incidents, including acts of disrespect towards the island’s predominantly Hindu culture.
The case attracted attention on the Hindu island after Balinese influencer Ni Luh Djelantik reposted the video several times between Saturday and Sunday, attracting hundreds of thousands of views.
“We are still investigating this incident,” Immigration Bureau Chief Tedy Riyandi said in a statement sent to AFP Tuesday.
The foreigner was identified by authorities, but his name and nationality were not made public during the search.
“Current efforts by the Immigration Office are to contact the foreigner’s social media account, but so far there has been no response,” Riyandi said.
He said the search for the foreign national was coordinated with Bali police and they were still trying to assess the location and time it took place.
Tourism-dependent Bali attracts millions of foreign visitors each year, but several high-profile cases since the island reopened after the Covid-19 pandemic have seen some deported for lewd acts.
Bali immigration deported a Danish woman in June after she was filmed showing off to the public while riding a motorbike.
A Russian woman was also expelled from the island in April for posting a naked photo of herself in front of a sacred tree.
In June, the local government released a guide for tourists wanting to visit Bali after being pressured to do so by the island’s immigration office.
