What is investor KITAS?

The Investor KITAS is a visa specifically designed for business investors in Indonesia, allowing them to live and manage their business in Indonesia.

Difference between investor KITAS and regular KITAS

The main difference between Investor KITAS and regular KITAS is that the investor does not need to apply for a work permit (as they are not considered as an employee) and thus has no requirement of monthly contributions in the DKP-TKA (Development Funds in Exchange of hiring a foreign worker).

Types of investor KITAS

In Indonesia, investor KITAS can be categorised into two:
  • Index 313: one-year KITAS
  • Index 314: two-year KITAS
