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 He said this type of residence permit is no longer valid if the foreigner leaves Indonesian territory.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.

Three Ways to Conduct FDI in Indonesia

Previously, the www.hukumindo.com platform has talk about "Knowing Joint Venture Companies in FDI Indonesia", "Overview of Special Economic Zones and Integrated Industrial Zones in Indonesia", you may read also "Understanding 5 Steps Foreign Direct Investment In Indonesia" and on this occasion we will discuss about 'Three Ways to Conduct FDI in Indonesia'.

Many people consider that Indonesia is a country with great potential for foreign investment, because there are many factors that are attractive to investors. One of them is low costs, covering various types of expenses for a business, such as the price of raw materials to labor wages. Therefore, it is not surprising that we often find factories and companies owned by business people from other countries.[1]

The three ways to make foreign investment in Indonesia are as follows:[2]
  1. FDI can be done by buying an existing company in a country, or it can also be done by providing capital to build a new company in that country.
  2. Direct foreign investment is also usually characterized by the purchase of at least 10% of shares in a country's company by individuals or companies from other countries. If the share purchase is less than 10%, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) defines share ownership as a person's or company's share portfolio only.
  3. Other ways to carry out foreign direct investment are also usually in the form of purchasing or building factory construction, as well as purchasing land by foreign investors. This form of building or land ownership from foreign direct investment is generally full or almost full.

FDI or "Foreign Direct Investment" is a form of investment carried out by a company from one country to invest its capital over a long period of time into a company in another country. So this foreign direct investment involves two countries at once.[1]

There are various forms of FDI, one example is a joint venture, this joint venture is the ownership of a company that is jointly owned by two or more countries.[2] Examples of this joint venture include PT Nestle Indofood Citarasa Indonesia which is a company formed between PT Nestle Indonesia and PT Indofood CBP Sukses Makmur Tbk. And many more. The most important legal basis for the formation of this joint venture company is the Investment Law and the Limited Liability Company Law.

Suspect Still Underage, Murder Case in Germany Closed

Reported by the AFP news agency, the victim, known only as Luise, disappeared in March after leaving a friend's house near the town of Freudenberg, in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. His body was found with multiple stab wounds the next day in a forest area, not far from his house. Two girls aged 12 and 13 who knew Luise later confessed to the murder. Investigators said there was no sign that a third party was involved in the stabbing.[1]

German prosecutors said they had closed the murder case involving two minors. The two girls admitted to stabbing to death a 12 year old girl. This case was closed because the perpetrator of the murder was too young to be held criminally responsible. In Germany, the age of criminal responsibility begins at 14 years old.[2]

After the murder, the schoolgirls were placed under the care of juvenile welfare authorities. According to local authorities, they are currently housed in a "therapy facility" and receiving school lessons there. The case revived memories of the 1993 murder of two-year-old James Bulger in England. The boy was kidnapped and tortured before being killed by two 10-year-old boys, Robert Thompson and Jon Venables.[3] And if you have any legal issue in Indonesia territory, contact us then, feel free in 24 hour, we will be glad to assist you.

Strange Divorce Case Because of Coffee

The first coffee shop was founded in Istanbul, the capital of Turkiye in the era of the Ottoman Empire in 1554. Coffee shops then began to open one by one in every region of the empire. Each shop also has a different concept, for example porter coffee shop, artisan coffee shop, janisari coffee shop, and tulumbac coffee shop. Increasingly, these shops are not just places to drink coffee. Coffee shops are also places where people gather and socialize, discussing various things, including political matters.[1]

When coffee shops developed in the Turkiye region, only men could go and drink in coffee shops. Women could only drink coffee at home or in the bathhouse. To get coffee, wives depend on gifts from their husbands. Therefore, a wife who is not satisfied with her husband's gift of coffee can divorce her partner according to legal regulations.[2]

The Ottoman Empire issued a regulation stating that men could consume coffee. However, if a husband does not bring enough coffee to his house, then his wife has the right to sue him.[3] And if you have any legal issue in Indonesia territory, contact us then, feel free in 24 hour, we will be glad to assist you.

Not Paying 3 Months' Rent, Man Allegedly Locked by Apartment Owner Until He Starved to Death

Previously, the www.hukumindo.com platform has talk about "Expired Indonesia Driving License Can be Extended, Note the Conditions!", "A Man In Surabaya Jailed For Stealing His Own Car", you may read also "Prices of Houses that Foreigners Can Buy and Own in Indonesia" and on this occasion we will discuss about 'Not paying 3 months' rent, man allegedly locked by apartment owner until he starved to death'.

Have you ever been late paying your rent for a house or apartment? What experiences have you had and what the unit owner did when you were late paying? A man in Malaysia had a bad experience. He starved to death because he was allegedly locked from the outside by the apartment owner. This incident was widely discussed in Malaysia. His body was found by neighbors in July 2023. "It is believed that the owner locked it because the victim did not pay rent for 3 months".[1]

The victim, who was a 40-year-old private driver, was reportedly unable to seek help because he did not have enough money to buy telephone credits. However, it is not clear whether the apartment owner knew there was someone inside or not when he locked the door. The victim's lawyer said that, despite the fact that the tenant could not pay, the owner could not immediately lock the apartment door because it was potentially dangerous and could cause death. In addition, he said, it is also a form of imprisonment.[2]

"If the tenant defaults, the owner can obtain a court order through the courts, or handle it through a small lawsuit," he explained further. “Tenants should not be locked out”. "We have just taken up the case and will submit it to court as soon as possible to seek justice for the deceased," he added.[3] And if you have any legal issue in Indonesia territory, contact us then, feel free in 24 hour, we will be glad to assist you.
