The Directorate General of Immigration, through the Directorate of Residence Permits for Immigrants (Ditintalkim), organized on Tuesday (05/10/2022) the virtual event for the publication of Residence Permit Services for Immigrants.

The event discussed various adjustments to residence permit extensions and fees in accordance with the Ministry of Law and Human Rights (Permenkumham) Regulation No. 29/2021 on Visas and Residence Permits as well Ministry of Finance (PMK) Regulation No. 9/PMK. 02/2022 on State Non-Tax Revenue (PNBP) from Immigration Service Types and Fees.

Representatives from the Visa, Passport and Immigration Control Directorate, the Immigration Technology and Information Systems Directorate, and the Immigration Intelligence Directorate, as well as Regional Chiefs immigration offices and immigration implementation technical units (UPT) attended the event, as did the immigration officer at the Indonesian representative office.

“The implementation of this PMK follows Permenkumham No. 29/2021. The enactment of these two regulations is essential to support immigration as an enabler of economic development,” said the Director of Residence Permit for the immigration, Pramella Yunidar Pasaribu, in her opening speech. .

“However, Permenkumham No. 29/2021 cannot be fully implemented [yet] due to the Covid-19 pandemic situation, for which there have been no significant regulatory changes to move from pandemic to endemic so far,” she added. “We are also currently trying to simplify the bureaucracy in the residence permit services that concern the public.”

In the next session of the event, Tessar Bayu Setyaji, the Immigration Status Transfer Coordinator, explained the new procedures and fees in detail.

More importantly, PMK No. 9 has set the fee for a 60-day extension of a Residence Permit (ITK) at Rp 2 million (USD 137.05). “There is no increase in fees for the ITK 30-day extension of visa on arrival [VOA] installation,” he said, which remained at Rp500,000.

Tessar added that the new regulations cover everything from oversight to intelligence and business licensing to the management of public funds.

The Immigration Bureau has also issued Circular No. IMI-0093.KU.01.03 2022 as a technical guide for the implementation of Ministerial Regulation No. 29/2021. The circular states that single-visit visa holders can extend their stay for up to 60 days, provided that the duration of their stay does not exceed 180 days, including the 60-day extension.

Meanwhile, foreign nationals born in Indonesia can be granted an initial ITK of 60 days.

Tessar also explained that visitors who entered the country with a VOA can apply for an extension at the local immigration office where they were currently staying.

“For example, if a foreigner enters Indonesia via Bali and then [relocates] in Labuan Bajo, they can extend their VOA to [Labuan Bajo] immigration office,” he said.

Immigration fee adjustments based on Ministry of Finance Regulation No. 9/PMK.02/2022 also apply to 60-day and 180-day multiple-entry visas, which are only granted for four types of visas. purposes: government purposes, family visits, business purposes and pre-investment activities.

Foreign nationals who plan to conduct activities in Indonesia not covered by these visas can apply for a land visit visa through the Immigration Office website (visa-online.imigrasi.go.id) or transfer their status to immigration at their local immigration office, provided they meet the requirements.
