KITAP – Stay Permit in Indonesia

A permanent stay permit known as KITAP is the ultimate goal for foreigners residing in Indonesia.

A permanent stay visa in Indonesia (KITAP) is a five-year-long permit that enables foreigners to stay in the country long-term without extending their visa on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis.

Eligible Applicants

Foreign nationals who are willing to apply for KITAP must meet several requirements based on their KITAP purpose.

As a rule of thumb, only foreigners who have been KITAS (short-term stay permit) holders can apply for KITAP. However, the precise duration of holding a KITAS and a number of required KITAS extensions vary.

Eligible candidates for a KITAP are:

  • Foreigners with an Indonesian spouse.
  • Foreign investors, directors or commissioners in a Limited-Liability Company (PT PMA).
  • Foreigners wanting to retire in Indonesia.
  • Indonesians regaining their citizenship.

Beware of Differences

KITAP, as well as KITAS, does not enable its holders to work legally in Indonesia. A work permit is required to make a profit in the country.
