The Permanent-Stay Permit (Kitap) has a considerable impact on the lives of people who qualify for this entitlement. Investors (by retaining shares in an Indonesian PMA company), senior employees (predominantly those sitting on the Board of Directors and Commissioners), retirees (55+) and spouses (married to Indonesian citizens), all qualify for this 5-year permit to live in Indonesia, with an automatic extension for the same period if one’s status does not change.

The Kitap is a conversion of the existing Kitas and is now available for those who have lived in Indonesia for a period of three consecutive years (spouses qualify after 2 years). The Kitap has a number of benefits, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • The Permanent-Stay Permit (Kitap) is valid for 5 years, negating the hassle associated with other visa types, including the Kitas
  • A travel permit, the Multiple Exit and Re-entry Permit (MERP), is valid for 2 years. It allows the holder to exit and enter Indonesia for business, leisure or other purposes whenever they require
  • A 5 years valid national police registration card (SKLD)
  • An Indonesian Identity card (KTP), valid for 5 years
  • An Indonesian driver’s license (SIM), valid for 5 years
  • The opportunity to open bank accounts, obtain credit cards and secure bank loans
  • Local prices, when booking a 4-5 star hotel
