What is This KITAS?

A lot of people confuse the term KITAS/ITAS with Indonesia work permit. KITAS/ITAS refers to the stay permit, whereas the work permit is known as RPTKA Approval (Pengesahan Rencana Penggunaan Tenaga Kerja Asing or the Foreign Worker Utilization Plan) ⼀ a document detailing the specific task, job titles, and the length of the employment of a foreign worker.

A foreigner who is working in Indonesia must understand that an RPTKA and a KITAS/ITAS, are 2 different permits that he/she must apply for.

Whom is This KITAS for?

Foreigners who would like to gain employment and earning in Indonesia. To apply for a Working KITAS/ITAS, sponsorship from your employer is required. The employer must be a company registered in Indonesia. Locally-registered companies are defined as a PT, PT PMA, or a representative office. A work KITAS/ITAS also allows a foreigner to re-enter Indonesia multiple times with one permit, it is commonly referred to as a MERP (Multiple Exit and Re-entry Permit)

Given the situation that you had already gotten a job offer/contract, to apply Indonesia Working KITAS involves following steps:

1. Apply RPTKA

  • This is called Expatriate Placement Plan or RPTKA (Rencana Penempatan Tenaga Kerja Asing). It means they have to tell the reason why they’re hiring you over an Indonesian citizen.
  • Your employer needs to obtain the RPTKA from the Ministry of Manpower of Indonesia.

2. Notification/Confirmation Letter on the Duration of Work Authorization

  • Upon the issuance of RPTKA, a Confirmation of the Duration of Work Authorization approval (request for Billing Code) should be applied by the expatriate assignee. The Confirmation Letter will be issued by the Ministry of Manpower within 3-7 working days from the date of the request.

3. Payment of DPKK (Skill & Development Fund) to obtain an IMTA (Ijin Mempekerjakan Tenaga Kerja Asing which can be translated to Permission to Employ Foreign

  • Upon the issuance of the Confirmation Letter above, within 3 days the DPKK fee should be paid.
  • That is a monthly fee of $100 ($1,200/year) that your employer must pay as compensation for choosing to hire a non-Indonesian citizen.
  • The IMTA is the only authority which allows you to legally work in Indonesia.

4. You have to apply for an Indonesian Work Visa (a.k.a VITAS) at an Embassy/Consulate of Indonesia near you. You need the copy of RPTKA and IMTA.

5. Once you arrive in Indonesia with the VITAS (Temporary Stay Visa), the Immigration Department will issue your ITAS (Temporary Stay Permit). The ITAS is the permit which allows you to live and work in Indonesia for up to 1 year (it can be extended). Meanwhile, the VITAS is the visa which allows you to enter Indonesia only in the first place.

6. After the Immigration Department has issued your ITAS (Temporary Stay Permit), you have to go to an Immigration Office and apply for your KITAS (the actual Card) separately.

Misconception: Some people think KITAS stands for an Indonesia Work Visa, when in fact, the KITAS is actually just the physical card which is showing that you have a an ITAS (Temporary Stay Permit). KITAS literally stands for Temporary Stay Permit Card. You can have a KITAS even if you don’t have the authorization to work.

7. Get the Police Report Letter (STM) from the local Police Department.

8. Register with your local Municipality’s Population Office to receive a Certificate of Registration for Temporary Resident (SKPPS).

Once you have all of these documents, then you have obtained your Indonesian Work Visa and are allowed to legally work in Indonesia.
