Manpower Expresses Regrets; Extends Expats A Warm Welcome

Excerpt – The Indonesian Ministry of Manpower recently caused panic and demoralization among companies hiring expats. All of this was following the drastic change of rules laid out in the Ministerial Regulation, PP no. 16 of 2015 from 29 June 2015. A brand new regulation, enforced immediately and without proper pre-announcements. The most widely felt implication was the ‘ten to one’ rule, stating that companies must hire ten Indonesian counterparts for every expatriate employee. As painful was the new situation that every single visitor to the company, besides the normal business visa, needed to have a work permit. Very disturbing was that all non-resident directors and commissioners needed a work permit, even if they didn’t plan to come to Indonesia.
