Indonesian Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) entry assistance for foreigners who have not yet obtained a Temporary Resident Permit (ITAS)【Jetro Webinar on August 13】
Just last week, Indonesia's Investment Coordinating Agency BKPM notified us that the ministry will be closed down and all employees will be switched to telecommuting due to an outbreak of infection of staff with a new type of coronavirus, and now the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights will also be closed down after several employees were found to be infected.
Stimulating investment in Indonesia and simplifying the licensing process for domestic business activities
IT providers such as ours, when dealing with new clients, are required to provide the AKTA Pendirian or SK (Surat Keputusan Pendirian)
We are sometimes asked to submit a copy of our TDP (Tanda Daftar Perusahaan) and SIUP (Surat Izin Usaha Perdagangan Menengah), but this time we were asked to submit our NIB (Nomor Induk Berusaha) for the first time when we started business with a major consumer electronics manufacturer.
What we mean by "starting a small business" here is that an individual leaves the office and establishes a domestic capital investment company (Penanaman Modal Dalam Negeri (PMDN)) with his own funds, while keeping fixed costs such as labor and office rents as low as possible, turning the whole process from purchasing to sales, and paying corporate income tax and value-added tax every month as appropriate.
The KITAP is for foreigners to stay permanently in Indonesia, so it would not be wrong to call it a permanent residency, but it is actually valid for five years, and if you want to leave and enter the country more than once during the period, you will need to extend your multi re-entry permit, which is valid for two years.
I have been to Singapore for 2 days to get a new working VISA, VITAS(Visa Tinggal Terbatas=Index 312) just before KITAS expired date at the end of last month. Before that I have got VISA Telex approval (VTT) which is necessary to be issued VITAS according to the timing of EPO (Exit Permit Only) of former KITAS.
Only C312 visa (6 months and 12 months) is allowed to work, and since it is a single entry visa, it is necessary to obtain a MERP (Multiple Exit/Re-entry Permit) separately in order to enter and exit the country within the period.
