Registering a company in Indonesia is as easy as it gets with the Corporate Service Providers, but what about the visa? Well, some company registration service providers, apart from the incorporation in Indonesia, offer business visa services in Indonesia. They give you a consultancy regarding the visa you need and help you apply for it, along with the documents and the application.
You still need to know the actual process for applying for a business visa in Indonesia.
When Do You Need to Apply for a Visa in Indonesia?
Indonesia has some visa-exempt countries, the individuals from which the citizens can live in Indonesia for 30 days. This can be helpful if you want first to register your company and apply for a business visa. If not, the visa is usually only helpful for travellers.
When it is time to apply for the visa, you should go for a KITAS, which is a visa for a temporary stay in Indonesia.
What Documents Do You Need for an Indonesia Business Visa?
You need these documents for the visa application form:
● A valid passport. It should have a validity of at least another six months.
● A copy of your passport.
● Two passport-size pictures.
● Coloured copy of your resume. It must have your company’s stamp.
● A copy of RPTKA.
● A certificate of at least five years of work experience.
● Proof of insurance policy.
● A coloured copy of your highest level educational degree.
● Company documents, including NPWP tax identification number, Capital Registration Licence (SPPMA), Business licence (SIUP), etc.
Depending on the type of business, you may need other documents. So, it is helpful to hire an Indonesian advisor.
What Type of Business Can You Open in Indonesia?
As a foreigner, you have to open a foreign company. For a foreign company, the minimum investment is IDR 10 billion. It should have a local representative; a local director, or a local commissioner. When it comes to the visa, 100% foreign ownership is allowed- if you are a director of your own company, you can take a KITAS work pass. If not, as you will still have a nominee director, you may or may not have to stay in Indonesia.
