Investor Kitas.

The Investor Visa / Investor KITAS is a visa specifically designed for business investors in Indonesia, allowing them to live and manage their business within the country with relative ease.
If you are a shareholder of a foreign-owned company and fulfill the criteria, you can apply for an investor KITAS. The requirements for shareholding are different, depending on whether you are just a shareholder or also a director or commissioner in the company.

Can I start the Visa process before I enter Indonesia?
Yes, you can. You can apply for you working permit before you enter the country and  get Telex Evisa which you can exchange to KITAS once you will enter Indonesia and visit Immigration office for biometrics.
What job do I need to obtain a 12-month KITAS?
A 12-month KITAS is only guaranteed for Directors and Commissioners. For roles in Management this is also possible however, it is at the discrepancy of Immigration. For non-management roles, (barring a few exceptions) you many only obtain a 6-month, non-extendable KITAS.
During the process, do I need to visit an Indonesian Embassy to collect my work permit?
Up until October 2020 all visas were processed in Indonesia and what was known as a TELEX was sent to an Indonesian Embassy overseas. Due to the Covid pandemic, the Indonesia government introduced E-Visas to mitigate risk of spreading the virus. Visa costs to the government which were previously paid to the Embassy are now paid at application stage in Indonesia (Working KITAS US$150).
What are the total costs to process a KITAS and what are they?
The Total costs involved will vary depending on the KITAS type, but for example a 12-month working KITAS will be subject to the following costs:

Agent processing Fee: 15.600.000rp (Normal/Express process)

PNBP: $150 (USD) Mandatory fee to the government

DPKK: $1200 (USD) Mandatory fee to the government
Do I need to do a biometric session?
Indonesia has recently introduced a biometric session at the airport, however currently, this is only for the working KITAS. Please note that even though this is operational, sometimes the system is not updated and you may still need to go to an immigration office in Indonesia to process a biometric session.

All other types of KITAS currently will require the applicant to go for a biometrics session at a local Immigration office, (subject to the domicile of the applicant).
I already have a KITAS, can I change jobs and keep my KITAS?
Unfortunately, you cannot continue your current KITAS. You will need to obtain an EPO (Exit Permit Only) which will terminate your current visa and you will then need to start your new visa with your new company.
Can I do more than one job on my KITAS?
You may only work in the location or job specification stated on your KITAS.
If I do not wish to extend my KITAS, what should I do?
To terminate your KITAS you must apply for an EPO (Exit Permit Only), whereby your work permit will be terminated. The EPO is very quick and generally takes around one day. Once your EPO stamp is issued, you will need to leave the country within 7 days.
What do I do if I have left Indonesia and have not submitted and EPO?
If you have not submitted an EPO, you can apply for what is known as an ERP (Exit Re-entry Permit). LetsMoveIndonesia can process this for you.
What happens if I overstay my Visa?
If you overstay your visa you may be subjected to daily fines, blacklisting from the country and even deportation. We cannot stress enough the importance of keeping your visa up to date.
I am married to an Indonesia Citizen and do not work. Is the Working KITAS the right option for me?
In this case you would be better suited applying for a Spouse KITAS. To find out more please check out the Spouse KITAS page.
