The completed documents need to be sent to Jakarta for approval. If your KITAS Indonesia application is granted, you will receive an approval letter (Telex). The verification process can take up thirty (30) days before a decision is made and the visa granted. After the Telex has been issued, you can apply for the real visa at an overseas Indonesian embassy / consulate overseas, nearest to you. You will need to pay for the administration fee in local currency for the visa application process and the duration will vary depending on the country where you submit the visa application.

Once you get your visa , you must return to Indonesia and report to the local immigration office within seven (7) days after arrival. We will arrange all this for you and guide you every step of the way. The KITAS Indonesia visa conversion process can take up to thirty (30) days in the local immigration office. Once finished, you will receive the following documents :

  • KITAS – limited stay permit
  • Blue Book – control book issued by immigration
  • Yellow Book – clearance certificate from the police
  • STM – report certificate from the police
  • IKTA – legal working permit

The above documents are valid for one year and you will need to pay USD $1200 to the Indonesian government upon receipt.

Will my KITAS Indonesia documentation still be valid if I need to go overseas?
You must apply for a re-entry permit at the local immigration office and pay fiscal duties directly at the airport.

Please contact us directly and we will advise you accordingly.
