Visa obtainment period

Visa validity period

The Second Home Visa is a long-term visa to Indonesia that allows individuals to reside in the country for up to 10 years. Investors either purchase real estate or open a deposit in a local bank with a minimum of 2 billion Indonesian Rupiah, which is approximately $130,000.

Indonesia’s Second Home Visa is designed for investors, tourists, and retirees and does not grant the right to work in the country.

Investors get a visa for either 5 or 10 years. If the visa is issued for 5 years, it can be extended for the same duration but only once. After living in the country for 3 years, individuals can replace the visa with an ITAP, an Indonesian equivalent of permanent residency.

5 benefits of the Second Home Visa

  • 1

    Moving to Indonesia

    Investors have the option to relocate to Bali or other regions of Indonesia and live in the country for up to 10 years. Unlike other types of long-term visas and residence permits, the Second Home Visa does not require renewal every 1—2 years.

    Visas for family members

    Investors’ immediate family, such as spouses, children, and parents, can obtain long-term visas and secure residency in Indonesia.

  • 3

    Minimal requirements for investors

    To obtain the visa, investors do not need to compile extensive documentation. It is sufficient to demonstrate the availability of the specified amount in a bank account or real estate purchase.

  • 4

    Prospect of permanent residency

    After 3 years of living in Indonesia, the investor and their family can apply for ITAP, equivalent to permanent residency. The ITAP card needs to be renewed every five years.

  • 5

    Business and investments in Indonesia

    The Second Home Visa does not grant the right to work in the country but allows investors to conduct business and invest within Indonesia. For instance, Second Home holders can purchase shares in local companies and elite real estate.

Step-by-step procedure for obtaining a Second Home Visa

1

1 day

Preliminary Due Diligence

Immigrant Invest conducts preliminary Due Diligence on the investor to reduce the visa rejection risk to as low as 1%.

The preliminary check is completely confidential and can be completed in just one day.

2

Up to 2 weeks

Document preparation and application for an e-visa

Applying for a Second Home long-term visa can only be done from within Indonesia. Therefore, investors first obtain an e-visa to enter the country and fulfil the investment requirement.

To obtain an e-visa, one needs to provide a passport, a bank statement, and a CV. Immigrant Invest lawyers will make copies of these documents and complete the visa application online.

The processing time for the visa application is typically 7 to 10 working days.

Up to 3 months

Trip to Indonesia and fulfilment of the investment condition

Upon arriving in Indonesia with the e-visa, the investor opens an account with a local bank or selects real estate for purchase. A minimum of 2 billion Indonesian Rupiah, or approximately $130,000, must be transferred to the bank account.

Once the investment requirement is fulfilled, Immigrant Invest lawyers register the investor on the Immigration Service website and apply for a Second Home Visa. The application includes a certificate from an Indonesian bank, photographs, and the applicant’s CV.

During the document submission, the investor pays a government fee of 21 million Indonesian Rupiah, or approximately $130.

Processing of the application typically takes up to 4 business days.

Up to 4 business days

Approval and collection of the visa

After the approval, the investor is required to visit an Immigration Service office to have the Second Home Visa stamped or endorsed in their passport.

Other types of Indonesia residence visas

Staying in Indonesia long-term is possible only with a limited stay permit (ITAS). Aside from obtaining the Second Home visa, other ways to secure ITAS include:

  • a temporary stay visa for work or study — valid for up to 1 year;

  • a family stay permit, or spouse-sponsored visa — valid for up to 2 years;

  • an investor stay permit — requires an investment in a local business — valid for up to 2 years.

After 3 years of residence in Indonesia, an ITAS holder can apply for permanent residency, ITAP.
