Obtaining a KITAP Indonesia: The Easiest Way

Getting a KITAP Indonesia might be the ultimate goal for every foreign citizen planning to stay in the country for a long time as it gives its holder many benefits compared to other stay permits. However, the Indonesian government sets complicated requirements for you to obtain one. As a trusted visa agent in Indonesia, we can guide you to the easiest way to obtain a KITAP.

KITAP Indonesia: when will you need one?

With its natural beauty and friendly people, Indonesia has attracted many foreigners to settle down for a long-term tenure. If you are one of them, you will need KITAP Indonesia to make your new life in the country a lot easier.

For instance, a KITAP allows its holders to stay for up to five years and two years of multiple entries into Indonesia. However, for foreigners who don’t enter Indonesia within one year, the validity of KITAP is automatically void.

Once it has expired, KITAP holders have two options; extend it for another five years or convert it into an unlimited KITAP. Once converted into an unlimited KITAP, foreigners only need to report to the Indonesian immigration office once every five years instead of annually.

The Requirement

What are the requirements for KITAP Indonesia? .

The Indonesian government only issues a KITAP to foreigners who already hold KITAS (limited stay permit) and sets strict KITAP requirements. Those who are eligible to obtain KITAP Indonesia are:

Foreigners who are married to an Indonesian citizen for a minimum of two years (spouse-sponsored KITAS holders)

Foreign investors, directors, or commissioners in a Limited Liability Company or PT PMA (current Indonesian investor visa holder for three consecutive years)

Foreigners who plan to retire in Indonesia (holders of an Indonesian retirement visa)

Indonesians who are in the process of regaining their citizenship
