If you are looking to stay in Indonesia permanently, Permanent stay permit KITAP is highly recommended. This visa is not as easy to get, but with the help of our professional immigration team, we will make your wish to stay in Indonesia possible.
KITAP is a permanent stay permit, which is quite difficult to obtain but provides enormous benefits to foreigners who wish to establish their livelihood in Indonesia.
KITAP stands for Kartu Izin Tinggal Tetap which translates as permanent stay permit card.
You can only apply for a KITAP once you have obtained a KITAS (limited stay permit) and had extended the latter multiple times. Unlike any other stay permits in Indonesia, the KITAP is valid for five years. If after five years there are no changes to the status of the expat, the visa is extended automatically; you need to apply for a new card.
The requirements and conditions vary depending on your eligibility. Below are a few examples:
Foreigners legally married to an Indonesian can convert their KITAS into a KITAP after two years of marriage. Your spouse will be the sponsor of your KITAP.
Keep in mind that you will not be eligible to apply for a KITAP if you haven’t had a KITAS first. The marriage itself make you automatically eligible.
After two times obtaining KITAP, a foreigner has rights for citizenship by applying to the Ministry of Law and Human Rights.
The candidates mentioned above can apply for the KITAP once they have been working with the same Indonesian company for five years in a row in the same position.
