The Investor KITAS is a visa specifically designed for business investors in Indonesia, allowing them to live and manage their business in Indonesia. Investor Kitas (Types 313 and 314) is issued to applicants who are investing in a PT PMA company in Indonesia and need to work for that company.
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).
To be eligible for the Investor KITAS, you are required to make a minimum investment of IDR 1,25 billion in company shares. Furthermore, for the investor who also holds the position of director in a company, they are only required to make a minimum of investment of IDR 1 billion.
If the company is newly established, it will be able to sponsor your Investment KITAS upon receiving the business registration number (Nomor Induk Berusaha – NIB) and business licenses (Izin Usaha). For businesses that are already up and running, you need to apply for all necessary licenses through the Online Single Submission (OSS).
