The city is also anticipating an influx of job seekers after the Aidilfitri holidays, and for this year, the newcomers will be advised to get temporary Jakarta identity cards to legalise their temporary stay.

"We will put up banners and announcements at bus terminals and other entry points, a week before and a week after the holidays," said Jakarta Civil Registration Agency head Purba Hutapea.

The agency will also intensify dissemination of information on regulations for newcomers wishing to move into the capital, which is home to more than 11 million people.

"We welcome people wanting to move to Jakarta, as long as they have letters of change in residency, residential and work guarantees," said Purba.
