Effective 6 November 2017, foreign nationals applying for a limited stay permit (ITAS) at the South Jakarta immigration office must submit a domicile letter, as proof of residency, in support of their application.

The change brings the South Jakarta immigration office into line with the other immigration offices in Jakarta, which had already implemented this policy.

What exactly is required?

For an initial ITAS application, an applicant staying in an apartment or a hotel must submit a domicile letter from the management of the apartment building or hotel. An applicant staying in a house requires a domicile letter from the local village or municipality office (kelurahan).

For a renewal ITAS application, an applicant staying in an apartment or a house must provide a domicile letter from the local village or municipality office (kelurahan).

Action Items

  • Employers of foreign nationals applying for ITAS in Jakarta should ensure their employees are aware of the latest application requirements.
