dc.description.abstract
Migrant workers are a key part of Indonesia’s economy. The equivalent of almost 7 percent of Indonesia’s labor force, an estimated 9 million people, work overseas and in 2016, over IDR 159 trillion (US dollar 11.2 billion) was sent back to Indonesia in the form of remittances. However, undocumented migration increases risk and lowers returns to working abroad. Data from the Indonesia Safe Migration Survey (2018) shows that few migrant workers know the requirements to migrate as documented migrant. Moreover, the risks of undocumented migration appear higher for women with time constraints.
