Previously, the www.hukumindo.com platform has talk about "Amount of Authorized Capital of Foreign Investment Companies in Indonesia", "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 'Indonesia Immigration Implements Bridging Visa'.

The Directorate General of Immigration, Ministry of Law and Human Rights (Kemenkumham) implements the Transitional Stay Permit or Bridging Visa policy. Immigration calls the residence permit a 'bridge' between the previous residence permit and obtaining a new residence permit for foreign nationals (WNA). "In this way, foreign citizens holding a Visit Stay Permit submitted via evisa.imigration.go.id are able to obtain a Limited Stay Permit without having to leave Indonesian territory. Likewise, holders of Limited Stay Permits and Permanent Stay Permits which can no longer be extended, can obtain a new Residence Permit without having to leave Indonesian territory," said the Director General of Immigration, Silmy Karim, in a written statement, Tuesday (23/4/2024).[1]

He said the implementation of the Transitional Stay Permit is regulated in Minister of Law and Human Rights Regulation (Permenkumham) Number 11 of 2024 which was ratified on April 1 2024. The validity period of the Transitional Stay Permit is 60 days and only applies to foreigners who are already in Indonesian territory. He said this type of residence permit is no longer valid if the foreigner leaves Indonesian territory. Silmy said that the residence permit could be used by foreigners who would apply for a change of status to a Limited Stay Permit. Foreigners holding a Transitional Stay Permit, he said, are not subject to overstay if their Transitional Stay Permit application is approved after the validity period of the previous stay permit expires. Foreign citizens who wish to use a Transitional Residence Permit must submit an application via the evisa.imigration.go.id page and pay the immigration fee no later than 3 (three) days before the validity period of the previous residence permit expires.[2]

Silmy said that the Transitional Stay Permit would help foreigners save time, energy and accommodation costs that would otherwise be incurred if foreigners had to leave Indonesian territory to submit an application and wait for approval for a new visa. "The implementation of the Transitional Stay Permit is an effort by the Directorate General of Immigration to create legal certainty for foreign citizens residing in Indonesian territory as well as ease of service," he said.[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.
