As one of the main areas of cooperation for ASEAN, Indonesia bears the responsibility of obligations made in the tourism industry as a member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). It follows that Indonesia must without a doubt create safe conditions for the travel and tourist industry on its own. A state’s duty is to provide the safety and security of every foreign national on its soil, and foreign nationals must abide by the laws that are in place there. Asylum seekers and refugees are among the non-immigrant foreigners who enter another state as tourists or residents. The purpose of this research is to investigate further how Indonesia’s immigration laws support the protection and securitization of refugees who are considered foreign nationals. This article employed the statutory, conceptual, and case approaches within the framework of the juridical normative method. Subsequently, it was discovered that certain immigration policies in Indonesia did not completely address securitization and protection in the country; one such policy required foreign nationals to carry travel documentation like passports or visas. A refugee might, nevertheless, run across circumstances that make them have to go without anything. It is therefore necessary to reevaluate and suggest a new paradigm and breakthrough for Indonesia’s official responsibility for the securitization and protection of refugees.
