If you are a foreign investor who plans to hire foreign experts to support your investment, you must consider securing an Indonesian investor KITAS. Once your business is fully set up, an Indonesian investor KITAS is beneficial as you no longer need to pay USD 12,000 in annual work permit fees.
There are two types of investor KITAS or investment visa in Indonesia: Index 313 which allows investors to stay in the country for one year, and Index 314 for two years of validity. Both allow its holder to enter and leave the country multiple times.
To obtain an investor KITAS in Indonesia, foreigners who are the director or commissioner of a company are required to have invested a minimum of IDR 1.1 billion. If the investors do not hold such titles in the company, they must invest a minimum of IDR 1.125 billion to obtain an investor KITAS Indonesia.
Upon receiving a business registration number (Nomor Induk Berusaha – NIB) and business licenses (Izin Usaha), your newly established company is eligible to support you for an investor KITAS.
To obtain one, you must also provide supporting documentation such as a signed application letter and company registration documents. Please also note that the company is required to hire at least two Indonesian employees for tax and human resources support.
