As in every other country, you will need legal documents such as visa and work permit to enter Indonesia
The type you need will depend upon the purpose of visit or stay in the territory. Arranging for visas and work permits, as well as other administrative documents related to foreign labor is relatively time-consuming and difficult in Indonesia.
# VISAS AND WORK PERMITS (KITAS)
Indonesia has several types of visas that are based upon the purpose of your visit, but for companies, the most common are the Work Visa (called KITAS) and the Multiple- Entry Business Visa.
Any foreigner who works or obtains income in Indonesia must apply for a work permit. This is a bureaucratic procedure that involves the Ministry of Manpower as well as the immigration office. The entire procedure will take two months.
KITAS provides the following benefits
- Obtaining employment and salary legally
- Having the right to stay without regularly having to leave the country
- Obtaining permanent residence after 3 years
How to apply for KITAS?
- Send us the required documents from your sponsor company. These include company documents and the expatriate placement plan that we will help you create.
- Send us the required documents about the applicant. We will need a copy of the passport and university diploma, photos and insurance policy information.
- We will prepare the application and see it through the process in Indonesia.
- You will apply to the Indonesian Embassy in your country to get a temporary visa.
- Once you arrive in Indonesia, our consultant will accompany you to the Immigration Office to give fingerprints and signature.
- We will complete the rest of the requirements, such as the re-entry permit and IMTA document.
The whole procedure will take about one month and Cekindo is ready to efficiently lead you through the KITAS process and save your time with our extensive networks, which include local authorities.
