Previously, the www.hukumindo.com platform has talk about "What is a Bridging Visa?", "Golden Visa and Possible Implementation in Indonesia", you may read also "Indonesia Sport, Music and Art Visa, What Are They?" and on this occasion we will discuss about 'Benefits of Using an Indonesian Bridging Visa'.

Bridging Visas are regulated in Minister of Law and Human Rights Regulation (Permenkumham) Number 11 of 2024 which was ratified on April 1 2024. This Transitional Residence Permit or what is also known as a 'Bridging Visa' is a 'bridge' between a previous residence permit and obtaining a new residence permit.[1]

The validity period of the Transitional Stay Permit is 60 days and is only onshore, namely for foreigners who are already in Indonesian territory. This residence permit is no longer valid if the foreigner leaves Indonesian territory. This stay permit can be used by foreigners who will apply for a change of status to ITAS (Limited Stay Permit).[2]

So what are the main advantages when we use this visa? Referring to the previous provisions, foreigners whose residence permits have expired must leave Indonesian territory first in order to obtain an extension of their residence permits. According to this Minister of Law and Human Rights Regulation (Permenkumham), it is possible for foreign citizens holding a Visit Stay Permit (ITK) to obtain a Limited Stay Permit (ITAS) without having to leave Indonesian territory. The same thing also applies to ITAS and Permanent Stay Permit (ITAP) holders who can no longer be extended. They can obtain a new residence permit without having to leave Indonesian territory.[3] And if you have any legal issue in Indonesia territory, contact us for business inquiry, feel free in 24 hour, we will be glad to assist you.
