Bali is one of the most pleasant and comfortable places to stay. A good tropical climate, beautiful nature, a fairly high level of medical care and, of course, the hospitality of the locals. What else do you need for a carefree life in retirement?
Good news! Indonesian legislation provides for a special type of visa for the elderly – the Retirement Visa.
The Kitas retirement visa is issued to persons who have reached the age of 55. In fact, this visa is a temporary residence permit in Indonesia. A retirement visa is issued for 1 year with a possible annual extension of up to five years. After 5 years, you can apply for a permanent residence permit.
If one of the spouses has not reached the age of 55, it is possible to apply for a dependent retirement visa for him, if he has an official marriage certificate. Also, a dependent retirement visa can be issued for children (under 18 years old) of the applicant.
A pension kitas is issued to persons who have reached the age of 55. It is possible to become a sponsor for issuing other types of kitas for a spouse/child under the age of 18, if there is a marriage certificate.
The term for issuing an onshore pension kitas is about 1 month.
Obtaining a kitas offshore consists of two stages
- It takes 7-10 working days to get an e-visa to enter Indonesia
- The delivery of biometrics after entry and the receipt of a kitas is approximately 3 weeks.
The cost of obtaining a pension kitas is 16 million per person for 1 year
