Unravelling the Myths about a Work Permit
Better safe than sorry – a work permit, work visa and business visa are not the same, and it is important not to confuse them.
A work permit (IMTA) is the only document which allows its holders to be legally employed in Indonesia. Its application usually goes hand in hand with a work visa (KITAS), but one does not replace the other.
The process might take 2 months while the validity of the permit is limited to a maximum of 1 or 6 months or 1 year.
