For the majority of those living in Bali during the KTT G20 Leaders Summit, there will be some upheaval and obstacles. The main event is being held on the 15th-16th, but there will be large-scale operations facilitating the event from the 12th of November to the 18th.

Immigration Services During G20 Bali


Immigration services will be limited from Monday to Thursday, 14th - 17th November 2022. This means those with stay permits that expire between November 12th - 20th need to submit documents for their extension at the latest Friday, November 11th.

Driving in Bali During G20


Road Closures, Diversions, Odd-Even Traffic Management


Road closures and temporary traffic management systems are coming into place this week (from 11th - 17th November) to facilitate the delegations, media, and representatives for the G20 Summit arriving in Bali. Traffic management systems include road closures, diversions, and odd-even management systems on some of the island’s key transport routes for locals, expats, tourists and holidaymakers.

Ngurah Rai Airport Diversion


As well as the VVIP guests flying into Bali Airport, there will be dozens of additional military, security and cargo flights carrying all the resources needed for each head of state’s security and comfort. This means those not involved with G20 will have to follow a diversion around Kuta when entering and leaving the airport, rather than using the main road to Sunset and the Tol road.

This will be formally in place from the 14th to the 17th of November, though there may still be delays and diversions from the 12th to the 18th.

There is a great visual of the diversion that will be in place for the majority of residents in Bali here:

Travelling to Nusa Dua during G20


For those travelling to the airport from Nusa Dua during G20, the following diversion will be in place:

For those travelling from the airport to Nusa Dua during G20, the following diversion will be in place:

Odd-Even Traffic Management System Bali G20


The odd-even system is in place on ten routes in southern Bali, with further restrictions on goods transportation throughout the area. The system manages traffic flow based on vehicle license plates. In the case of Bali’s G20 traffic management, the odd-even management system works to reduce traffic rather than stop it completely by allowing only certain license plates to pass on certain days.

The odd-even system will run from 6 am-11 pm on 11th-17th November. The roads impacted by the odd-even system are;

  1. Simpang Pesanggara – Sanur Interchange

  2. Simpang Kuta – Simpang Pesanggaran

  3. Intersection Kuta – Tugu Ngurah Rai

  4. Tugu Ngurah Rai – Nusa Dua

  5. Simpang Pesanggaran – Benoa Gate

  6. Airport Interchange (DPS) – Ngurah Rai Monument

  7. 042 Jimbaran – Uluwatu

  8. Bali Mandara Toll Road

  9. Uluwatu II Road

  10. Udayana Campus Highway.




11th, 13th, 15th, 17th - Only odd number plates can pass

12th, 14th, 16th, 18th - Only even number plates can pass

For example, on the 15th of November, vehicles with an odd number on their license plate can pass through but those with even numbers must follow the diversions. Similarly, on 16th November, vehicles with an even number on their license plate (e.g., DK 6774 LL) can pass through, and odd numbers will have to follow the diversion.

Exceptions to Odd-Even Traffic Management System


The system will not apply to vehicles belonging to government officals, official vehicles with red plates or TNI/POLRI service numbers, fire engines, ambulances, transportation public with yellow plates, G20 Summit vehicles, electric motorized vehicles, vehicles with disability badges and tow trucks.

The transportation of bottled drinking water, postal deliveries, transportation of cash, logistics needed for the Summit G20, and staple food supplies are not impacted by the changes in traffic regulations.

The system would also potentially be scrapped in the case of an emergency such as a disaster or riot.

Road Closures During G20


In addition to the odd-even system, some full road closures will happen on these routes for short periods while heads of state travel from the airport to Nusa Dua.

You can read the current regulations here in Indonesian or here in unofficial English translation. These state that it is still only necessary to have received your second vaccination at least 14 days prior to travel. The Indonesian government has not updated their policy on what counts as fully vaccinated so it is still two shots of Moderna or Astrazenica or one shot of the single dose vaccines such as Johnson & Johnson.

Next, you can pick up your baggage, proceed through customs and be transferred directly to your hotel where you will await your PCR test results in your room.

You can find a list of the 64 Government approved hotels here. You have to have a paid-for booking at one of these hotels to obtain the VoA. By booking one of these hotels you will also have airport pick up and PCR tests arranged for you.

You will receive the results of the PCR test you took upon arrival at your hotel within 3-6 hours.

If your PCR test is positive you will be transferred to an isolation hotel or hospital depending on your symptoms.

How is this Different from Quarantine?


Provided your PCR test on arrival is negative, you will be able to roam Bali during your 4-day booking. You must be back at your hotel on day 3 for your 2nd PCR test.

How to Extend Your Visa on Arrival in Bali


If you would like to stay for longer than the initial 30 day validity of your VoA, bring your passport to our office 1 week before your visa expires. We will submit your visa extension and then approx 7 days later we will let you know when your appointment is at immigration to be photographed and fingerprinted. You will get your passport back around 5 days later.

Get in touch if you would like to know more about your VoA extension.

If Your Country is NOT on the List for Visa on Arrival to Bali...


If you are not a citizen of one of the 23 countries where VoA is available, you will need to get a B211 tourist visa. We have detailed everything you need to know about the B211 visa here.

You will still need to book a 3 day stay at a CSHE certified hotel, as detailed above.

Want to Stay in Bali Longer Than 60 Days?


If there is a chance you would like to stay in Bali for longer than 60 days and leaving the country and returning again would not be an option for you, then it is safer to get the B211 visa. If you extend this the maximum amount of times, the total validity will be 180 days.

INDONESIA QUARANTINE REDUCED TO 5 DAYS

New regulation released Tuesday 1st February 2022 has reduced mandatory quarantine to 5 days. You can read the regulation here.

In other regulations, the Government of Indonesia has decided to lift restrictions on the entry of foreign tourists to Bali and the Riau Islands. Previously, only 19 countries could be granted a Visit Visa with the purpose of tourism to visit Bali and Riau Islands. Travellers from other countries needed to have the B211 visa with a different reason for travel.

The Sub-Coordinator of Public Relations of the Directorate General of Immigration, Achmad Nur Saleh, emphasized that immigration provisions for tourist visits to Bali and Riau Islands require foreigners to have a visit visa.

“Tourism in Bali and Riau Islands has been opened to all foreign tourists. Foreign travellers must apply for a B211A Tourist Visit Visa with a travel company guarantor, not an individual," he said.

In addition to being required to have a passport and visa, foreigners are required to have:


  • a complete dose of Covid-19 vaccination certificate

  • RT-PCR test results

  • proof of ownership of health insurance with an insured value of 25,000 USD

  • proof of accommodation payment confirmation while in Bali.


"It should also be remembered that they are also required to undergo quarantine according to the provisions of the Covid-19 Handling Task Force," said Achmad.

For the entry gate for foreign tourists, Achmad explained, according to the provisions of the Covid-19 Handling Task Force, only 2 (two) airports were allowed, namely Bali and the Riau Islands.

Once you arrive in Bali you will need to go to have your temperature checked and if it is above 37.5 degrees celsius you will need to take a PT-PCR test.

If it is below 37.5 you can go to the immigration counters for inspection of immigration and customs documents to enter Bali, Indonesia.

Next, you can pick up your baggage and proceed through customs.

Key Facts about the B211 Visa


The initial visa validity is 60 days.

You can then extend the visa 4 x for 30 days each time, so the maximum visa validity is 180 days (these days include the day you land and leave.)

Each extension needs to be applied for at least 4 business days before your visa validity expires and costs IDR 800k.

If you leave Indonesia before your visa is expired, your visa will be voided and you will have to get a new one if you wish to return to Indonesia.

For the first extension, you will need to go to the immigration office to get fingerprinted and photographed. We have an agent at the office who will meet you and guide you through the process quickly.

After the first extension, all you will need to do is give us your passport and we will manage your future extensions for you.

You cannot work in Indonesia using this visa. If you would like to know more about living and working in Indonesia, do get in touch and we’ll talk you through the options.

Australia prepares to reopen borders

Great news from Australia - From November 1st 2021, Australia will start lifting its outbound travel ban for fully vaccinated residents thanks to the strong uptake of COVID-19 vaccines.

Sydney and Melbourne, Australia's biggest cities, are also preparing to welcome overseas travellers without quarantine. Unvaccinated travellers will still be allowed entry if they agree to undergo the two-week mandatory quarantine upon arrival.

However, Australia's states and territories have differing vaccination rates and health policies. Here are some indicated dates in Australia's path to reopening borders based on current vaccination rates:

Nov. 1

** New South Wales and Victoria - home to more than half of Australia's near 26 million population - will allow quarantine-free entry to all international travellers, although citizens and permanent residents will benefit first.

** All fully-vaccinated citizens and permanent residents can leave Australia without seeking a travel exemption.

Nov. 23

** South Australia to halve quarantine period for international travellers to seven days; quarantine to end when double-dose vaccination rate in the state's population above 12 reaches 90% but no firm date given.

** Northern Territory to allow two-week home quarantine for fully vaccinated domestic travellers from virus hotspots, rather than at supervised facilities.

Dec 1

** Unvaccinated residents in New South Wales, home to Sydney, to enjoy the same level of freedom as the vaccinated - no limits on outdoor and home gatherings, while more customers will be allowed in retail stores.

Dec. 15

** Tasmania to open borders for fully vaccinated overseas travellers and residents from other states who must provide a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to travel.

Dec. 17

Queensland to allow quarantine-free entry to vaccinated residents from all states, but international arrivals may have to undergo "a period of home quarantine".

Dec. 20

Northern Territory to halve home quarantine to a week with officials planning to end quarantine by Jan. 18, 2022.

*** Western Australia, the only state without a reopening plan yet, has warned it could close its borders to other states if they allow quarantine-free entry for residents from virus-hit New South Wales and Victoria.

 

Airlines have said they're not ready for the ramping up of services this reopening will require. However Australian carrier Qantas responded by announcing it would restart international flights to major overseas destinations a month earlier than their planned date of 18th December.

Although travel is not immediately open to foreigners, the government said it was working "towards welcoming tourists back to our shores".

Mr Morrison said Australia's mandatory 14-day hotel quarantine - which costs each traveller A$3,000 (£1,600; $2,100) - would be replaced by seven days of home quarantine for vaccinated Australians or permanent residents. Unvaccinated travellers must still quarantine for 14 days in hotels.

The documents we need for your 0ffshore B211 visa application

Why did some people only ask me for a copy of my passport and proof of vaccine?


Do I really need to provide my flight booking details?


Can I use a letter from my doctor instead of a PCR test for the visa application?


Do I really need to organise my travel insurance now?


 

We understand why a lot of people are confused by the application process for the B211 Offshore Visa. Some of the requirements don't seem necessary at the application stage. So today we are explaining why we ask for the documents we require.

This is a list of the documents we need for the B211 offshore visa application:

The documents we need for your offshore B211 visa application

We ask for these because each one is required by the immigration regulations and the visa application system. There is no way to submit the application without uploading all of these documents.

The image below shows the application page for the B211 Offshore Visa. We have marked the documents required for the B211 Offshore Visa application with the red line. If these documents are not uploaded, it is not possible to click ‘Done & Send’ to submit the application.

But, in some cases, there are alternative options, which we explain below. 


b211 offshore visa requirements

Overall, something needs to be uploaded for each of the requirements on the list that we have marked with the red line. But...
*** Instead of a negative PCR test, it is possible to upload a letter from your doctor stating you are healthy with no signs of COVID-19.

*** If you are unable to get the vaccine for medical reasons, we can upload a letter from your doctor detailing the medical reasons.

 

It is important to understand that if the person helping with your visa application does not ask you for everything that is marked on this list, they will be uploading a document that is not genuine in its place.

As a result of these practices, we have heard of cases where people who are not our clients had problems using their visa. Some were turned away by immigration in Jakarta because the information from their application did not match their situation. Others were not allowed to board the plane as they did not have an onwards ticket.

We want to ensure all our clients arrive in Indonesia safely and without stress and hassle. We follow the regulations exactly to make sure our clients can travel with confidence and security.

 

To apply for your visa for Bali, Indonesia, check out this post where we explain everything you need to do.

Good news for those of you who couldn't use your new visas to enter Indonesia during the PPKM lockdown.

As stated in the regulation update on 17th September 2021, those with a Kitas or B211 Visa that was issued between 22nd April 2021 and 18th July 2021 can still use it to enter Indonesia as long as you come before 15th October 2021.

This regulation has been announced because usually once issued, eVisas are valid for 90 days. This means you have 90 days to enter Indonesia from the date of issue of the visa. The PPKM lockdown prevented many foreigners who had obtained visas from entering Indonesia for much of their 90-day window. So these people now have just under a month to use their visas before they expire.

Entering Indonesia in 2021


Many airlines have additional requirements at this time. We have detailed them below. Please print everything out and have it with you when you travel.

1. 5 days quarantine in Jakarta


You are required to do 5 days quarantine in Jakarta. There is a selection of hotels to choose from for your quarantine which you can book through this link.

2. Negative COVID test result


This is needed by airlines and Indonesian immigration. It needs to be a PCR test with a QR code and has to be done within 3 days of when you will land in Indonesia.

3. Proof of COVID-19 Vaccine


Needs to be a full dose vaccine. If you cannot take the vaccine we need a letter from your doctor stating the medical reason why you cannot have the vaccine.

4. Onwards flight


Like before COVID, many airlines will check you have an onward flight when checking you in, to ensure you don’t overstay your visa. These don’t have to be a return ticket, just one showing a journey outside of Indonesia. Make sure it is within 180 days of you landing in Indonesia. It may be fitting for you to get a flexible or refundable ticket.

5. Download and fill in your details with the E-HAC app


You will need to have downloaded the E-HAC app from Apple or Google and fill in the details of your journey ready to show the QR code to Indonesia immigration in Jakarta.

6. Immigration questions


You may be asked what the purpose is of your visit to Indonesia. Please check with us so you know who your sponsor is etc.

 

Key Facts about the B211 Visa


The initial visa validity is 60 days.

You can then extend the visa 4 x for 30 days each time, so the maximum visa validity is 180 days (these days include the day you land and leave.)

Each extension needs to be applied for at least 4 business days before your visa validity expires and costs IDR 800k.

If you leave Indonesia before your visa is expired, your visa will be voided and you will have to get a new one if you wish to return to Indonesia.

For the first extension, you will need to go to the immigration office to get fingerprinted and photographed. We have an agent at the office who will meet you and guide you through the process quickly.

After the first extension, all you will need to do is give us your passport and we will manage your future extensions for you.

You cannot work in Indonesia using this visa. If you would like to know more about living and working in Indonesia, do get in touch and we’ll talk you through the options.

I Have An Investor KITAS – What Work Can I Do With It?

We get asked this question a lot by Investor KITAS clients in Bali, Indonesia, who have a PT PMA Company.

With the Investor KITAS, you are allowed to manage your company in Indonesia.

Jobs you are permitted to do include:


  • Meetings with suppliers & staff

  • Staff training

  • Online marketing activities

  • Give talks & lectures

  • Manage the business finances

  • Negotiate large business deals

  • Visit the site of your business & potential new business locations


The Investor KITAS does not allow you to do manual work for your company.

Examples of work you cannot do:

  • Serve customers on a small scale. For instance, you cannot work at the cash register, serve food to tables or take orders

  • Teach a class, such as yoga, fitness or surfing

  • Perform at a venue, such as singing or playing an instrument in a band

  • Undertake manual marketing activities, such as doing product photography or setting up your stand at events


If the work you want to do in Bali, Indonesia, falls into these later categories, you will need a working KITAS rather than an Investor KITAS.

For more information on setting up a PT PMA company in Bali (required to sponsor an Investor KITAS), applying for the Investor KITAS, and the associated costs, take a look at our post here.

Do get in touch with your queries and questions.

Visa Agency Bali Clients – The Terms of Your Social & Business Visa Sponsorship

When we sponsor your visa, whether it is a social or business visa, we need you to accept the following statement of intention while in Indonesia:


  1. The Client declares that they will not engage in any political, propaganda, or intelligence seeking activities while using the visa.

  2. The Client declares that they will not be involved in drug trafficking or drug use while using this visa.

  3. The Client declares that they will not be involved in any other criminal activities while using this visa.

  4. The Client declares that they will not work for an Indonesian company or individual while using this visa.

  5. The Client declares that they will not receive income or direct payment of any kind in the country of Indonesia.

  6. The Client agrees to comply with the protocols of the Republic of Indonesia in order to combat COVID 19.


It is important to note that you need to be incredibly careful not to undertake any activities that could be perceived as working. This applies to what you are seen doing while in Indonesia, as well as what you post online and to social media. Even if, for example, you do a post promoting a local's business, someone could see it and think you are being paid, and get you investigated by immigration.

If you have any questions about your visa and what you can and cannot do, please email us on info@visaagencybali.com.

Bali expats were avidly watching the furore around Kristen Gray's Tweets this weekend. Many were unsure of their stance. Yes, encouraging people to move to Bali to live their best, most #Blessed life during a global pandemic, was (at best) horrendously tone-deaf and naive. But on the other side, there are a lot of people living in Bali in exactly Kristen's position. Even down to having their own 'How to Bali' eBook to tote on the topic. Plus, there was nothing in Kristen's messages that expats haven't been bombarded with a million times before by Bali's darling horde of Instagrammers-in-the-wild.

Now the Tweetstorm is settling, and Kristen is awaiting deportation, we are taking a look at the reasons Kristen's Tweets got her in trouble.

1. The Current COVID-19 Pandemic Situation in Bali


kristen gray living and working in bali

The COVID-19 situation is particularly sensitive in Indonesia right now. From 11th - 25th January, Bali has been in lockdown to tackle the spread of Coronavirus. Restaurants have a 9pm curfew and 25% capacity limit. Health and travel restrictions are in place. Foreigners are not permitted to enter Indonesia and the offshore visa application system is closed.

Tweeting about the benefits of moving to Bali at a time when it is not legally possible to do so was... not intelligent.

The government has stated Kristen's attempt to encourage people to travel to the country during the pandemic was 'unsettling to the public.'

 

2. Gave Misinformation About Working & Paying Tax in Bali


kristen gray bali deportedKristen sold an e-book titled Our Bali Life Is Yours and offered paid consultations on travelling to Bali, violating the purpose of her stay permit.

Although there are many digital nomads in Bali on tourist visas, it is in fact a grey zone and not fully legal. If you are living in Bali long term and working here, you should have an Indonesian company set up and be paying the appropriate taxes.

It was also pretty insensitive for Kristen to demonstrate it was easy for her to earn a comfortable living in Bali while so many are suffering extreme economic challenges brought about by the pandemic.

 

3. Culturally Tone-Deaf


We presume now Kristen Gray has had some time to reflect, she will understand how her naivety to the actual experience of Indonesians has caused a deep upset in the community.working in bali illegally

Commenting on how richly she can live in Bali as an expat, without considering how much of the population is struggling financially with swathes of the country living in poverty, was highly insensitive. This really hit a nerve as the gentrification of Bali and pricing out of the local population is a hot topic of recent years.

Kristen also labelled Bali as 'Queer Friendly.' Although this may be her experience in Bali, the LGBTQ+ community faces horrendous persecution across much of Indonesia. Just one example of this is the bill proposed by Indonesian lawmakers in March 2020 that would force lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people to undergo conversion therapy.



 

What Kristen could have done differently


There's little that can be done to combat the poor timing and insensitive elements of Kristen's posts. But when it comes to the legality of living and working in Bali, there are a number of ways Kristen could have got herself in a secure position.

In this post, we explain how you can set up a foreign-owned company in Indonesia (PT PMA) and how this can support your visa, whether it is a Working Kitas or Investor Kitas.

Next week we'll be running through the steps to creating a locally owned company (PT) so check back then if this is of interest.

If you have any questions about living and working in Bali, please do not hesitate to contact us on info@visaagencybali.com.

How to Set Up a Company in Bali – PT PMA and Kitas Explained

We have helped hundreds of clients to set up a business in Bali. This, along with getting an investor or working visa, allows our clients to live and work in Bali, Indonesia, long term. Today we explain the key benefits of a setting up a PT PMA (Foreign Investment LLC). We will also detail the steps, approximate costs and timescale for the process.


PT PMA Overview:



  • Full foreign ownership is possible, making this the ideal model for foreign investors who want full legal control of their business operating in Indonesia

  • Shareholders, directors and commissioners can all be foreigners - you need to have at least 2 shareholders, 1 director and 1 commissioner. There can be up to 3 people for each position, which later can be called as Board of Directors and Board of Commissioners

  • Your PT PMA can provide direct sponsorship, ie KITAS or Business Visa, to foreign workers and business partners

  • Allows for properties and assets to be owned/leased to the company

  • Highly demanding investment capacity requirement (at least IDR 10B) and you need to inject a paid-up capital/working capital of IDR 2,500,000,000 to the bank account of the company once the company is established. This can be over the course of several years.

  • It will take around 2.5 to 3 months to set up the company until it has ALL the licenses.


The PT PMA Company set up process can be split into 3 parts:


1. Set up PT PMA


These are the steps required for the initial set up of your company. This stage needs to be complete before we can apply for your Kitas with your company as the sponsor. Below we have detailed the documents we need from you.


Numbers 1-4 are for your business address. If you will be delivering services at various locations, you will need a correspondence office address as your administrative office. (We have a partnership with a Virtual Office space you can rent.)



  1. Rent agreement

  2. Land certificate

  3. Receipt of payment building and land tax the last 3 months (PBB)

  4. Building permit (IMB)

  5. Copy passport shareholder (full pages)

  6. Copy ID and tax register number of local shareholder (if any)

  7. Overseas and Indonesia address of each investor

  8. Company name (3 variations in case they are not available)

  9. Company address 

  10. Line of business (we will discuss your options with you in person)

  11. The share of capital for each investor (total capital min. US $ 1.000.000 and issued capital min. US $250.000)

  12. Position of each investor in the company (Director, Commissioner)


This process takes 21 days and at the end of it, you will have the following documents.



  1. Article of Association (Deed of Incorporation from a notary)

  2. Ministry of Justice Approval (SK Kemenkumham)


We will also make the application on the OSS system for the following documents. But, they will not be effective until we complete the necessary steps in step 3.



  1. Business License Number NIB

  2. Business Operational License (Ijin Usaha) 

  3. Ijin Lokasi (local permit)

  4. Ijin Linkungan (environmental effect document)

  5. Domicile Letter (SKTU)

  6. Registration of Tax ID (NPWP)


Step 1 costs IDR 25,000,000.


This cost can be split between the company investors. 


 


2. Apply for Visas (Investor Kitas or Working Kitas)


At this stage, we can apply for the visas for foreigners to live and work in Indonesia. The most cost-effective and straightforward visa to obtain is an Investor Visa. This is valid for 2 years and costs IDR 17,500,000. The process to obtain an Investor Kitas takes 21 days. With an Investor Kitas, you cannot work in Bali, Indonesia. You would however be able to run your company, making decisions on staff and processes. 


The other option is to obtain a Working Visa. Unless your company is entertainment-based, this visa will be valid for 1 year and allow you to earn money in Indonesia. A Working Kitas takes 28 days to process and each one costs IDR 13,500,000. You also need to pay USD 1,200 for tax


Step 2 costs IDR 17,500,000 per person


We may be able to offer a discount on additional visas applied for under the same company.


 


3. Complete Company Set Up


We need to complete this stage before you will be able to renew your Visas - so in 1 year for those with a Working Kitas, or 2 years for those with an Investor Kitas. The key documents involved are: 



  1. SPPL or UKL depending on business type

  2. NIB - Effective

  3. Business Operational License (Ijin Usaha) - Effective

  4. Ijin Lokasi (local permit) - Effective

  5. Ijin Linkungan (environmental effect document) - Effective


The requirements of this stage vary dramatically depending on the type of business you are setting up. A consultancy firm that works mostly online will cost a lot less than a large hotel or restaurant.


Step 3 costs at least IDR 20,000,000.


 


Example Company Set Up


For a business such as a marketing agency, with 5 investors, the initial cost per person would be IDR 22.5 million (USD 1,600.) This would get the business set up and 2-year investor visas for the 5 investors.


Step 1: IDR 25 m / 5 people + Step 2: IDR 17.5m


Over the course of the two years, step 3 will have to be completed. For this example, with 5 investors, this would cost another IDR 4m per investor. Without completing step 3 you will not be able to renew your visas when they expire after 2 years. 


 




Operating a PMA - Important Information


Company Tax in Bali


For every company in Indonesia, it is mandatory to report the annual tax. The general income tax rate is around 12.5-25% of the net profit if the company’s gross revenue is above IDR 4.8 billion. A flat rate of 25% is applied when the yearly revenue of the company is above IDR 50 billion. If the company’s gross income is below IDR 4.8 billion, the final income tax rate is 0.5% of the monthly gross income.


PMA Investment Reports


Additionally, to paying taxes, you will need to do a quarterly investment report. This report usually contains the profit and loss statement of your company, information on the number of employees, etc. This report is important as the government will see that your company is up and running instead of being a dormant company. Failing to provide such a report will attract the authorities to run an audit of your company.


Business classification for PT PMA


Every company in Indonesia needs to be registered under at least one business classification. The business classifications are determined by the activities you are planning to do. Based on the Presidential Decree No. 36 Year 2010, not all the business classifications are open 100% for foreign ownership. There are some other classifications that are closed for foreign ownership and require you to have a local partner to incorporate a company.


For example, the business classifications that are still open 100% for foreign ownership are real estate, villa accommodation, business consulting, restaurant or cafe, and trading for export/import among others. On the other hand, business classifications such as retail and beauty salons are closed for foreign ownership.

You can book your flight all the way to Bali, or to Jakarta then get a domestic flight to Bali.

Entering Indonesia in 2021


Many airlines have additional requirements at this time. We have detailed them below. Please print everything out and have it with you when you travel.

1. 8 days quarantine in Jakarta


You are required to do 8 days quarantine in Jakarta. There are a selection of hotels to chose from for your quarantine. Please contact us for the up to date list.

2. Negative COVID test result


This is needed by airlines and Indonesian immigration. It needs to be a PCR test and has to be done within 7 days of when you will land in Indonesia.

3. Fit to fly letter


Many airlines are asking for a 'fit to fly' letter in addition to a negative COVID test result. You'll need to contact your airline in advance to check their regulations and requirements.

4. Onwards flight


Like before COVID, many airlines will check you have an onward flight when checking you in, to ensure you don't overstay your visa. These don't have to be a return ticket, just one showing a journey outside of Indonesia. Make sure it is within 180 days of you landing in Indonesia. It may be fitting for you to get a flexible or refundable ticket.

5. Download and fill in your details with the E-HAC app


You will need to have downloaded the E-HAC app from Apple or Google and fill in the details of your journey ready to show the QR code to Indonesia immigration in Jakarta.

You may be asked what the purpose is of your visit to Indonesia. Please check with us so you know who your sponsor is etc.

 

Key Facts about the B211 Visa


The initial visa validity is 60 days.

You can then extend the visa 4 x for 30 days each time, so the maximum visa validity is 180 days (these days include the day you land and leave.)

Each extension needs to be applied for at least 4 business days before your visa validity expires and costs IDR 800k.

If you leave Indonesia before your visa is expired, your visa will be voided and you will have to get a new one if you wish to return to Indonesia.

For the first extension, you will need to go to the immigration office to get fingerprinted and photographed. We have an agent at the office to who will meet you and guide you through the process quickly.

After the first extension, all you will need to do is give us your passport and we will manage your future extensions for you.

You cannot work in Indonesia using this visa. If you would like to know more about living and working in Indonesia, do get in touch and we'll talk you through the options.
