What Is Kitas? Everything You Need to Know

Do you wish to get a stay permit to comfortably work and live in Bali – Indonesia? Evisa Bali covers the scope of who can receive, how to apply for one, and many others in this article below. We will also elaborate this post on several questions commonly asked regarding temporary stay permits in Indonesia.

What is KITAS?

KITAS or Kartu Izin Tinggal Terbatas is a temporary stay permit bestowed to a foreign national so s/he can reside in Indonesia for a limited period of time. Basically, it gives a longer stay duration compared to regular visitor’s stay permits in Indonesia (maximum 60-day validity)

Who can receive KITAS?

People who are eligible for a temporary stay permit in Indonesia such as:

  • A foreign national with a temporary stay visa holder
  • A child born in Indonesia from foreign national parents with a temporary stay permit
  • Eligible by a status transfer from a visitor’s stay permit
  • Those who are in charge as a captain, crew, board ship expert operating in the territory of Indonesia
  • A foreign national who is legally married to an Indonesian citizen
  • A child born from a marriage of a foreign national and an Indonesian citizen.

How long does the permit last?

The durations a temporary stay permit can cater to are 2 years, 1 year, 6 months, 90 days, and 30 days. All are extendable except for a 30-day temporary stay permit. The consideration as published in the official platform of the Directorate General of Immigration is mainly because the foreign national who wishes to apply for this permit does not intend to stay longer than 30 days in Indonesia.

Types of KITAS

Yes, there are certain activities that determine which type suits your duration of stay in Indonesia. In general, those who desire extensive stay periods of 6 months to 2 years usually come from:

  • A married couple of a foreign national and an Indonesian citizen
  • A child from a legal marriage of a foreign national and an Indonesian citizen
  • A return of an Indonesian citizen from a foreign country he used as a place of residence
  • Ex-Indonesian citizen
  • Foreign elderly tourists
  • Investors, clergies, experts, and students enrolling for formal education in Indonesia

While those who prefer the 30 days to 90 days for their temporary stay permit often base their arrival in the context of:

  • Conducting an activity related to their profession and receiving some sort of payment
  • Having a permit given by a local authority to make commercial films
  • Performing quality control of goods
  • Conducting an audit for a company branch situated in Indonesia
  • Performing after-sales service
  • Performing installation or reparation for machines
  • Carrying out non-permanent construction works
  • Participating in or holding a sport and art performances
  • Providing medical treatments
  • A prospective foreign national who is under working probation

Requirements in applying for electronic KITAS

On May 2, 2016, the Directorate General of Immigration has innovated on a bestowal of an electronic temporary stay permit that a foreign national with a temporary stay visa can apply for online at Pelaporan KITAS’ website . To receive the permit, one should prepare his passport and visa. You will be asked to input your remaining home address and the numbers from both your visa and passport. The applicant will receive an email informing the date to visit the Immigration Office and proceed with the non-tax revenue (PNPB) payment processing, photo-taking, biometrics, and interviews. Your permit will be sent in a form of a pdf by email.

Non-tax revenue, in this case, has already included the fees for your permit, the re-entry permit, and administration.

e-KITAS, is it safe from counterfeit?

e-KITAS is relatively safe from counterfeit because it is already secured with a QR code that serves as an encrypted unique code for the applicant.
