KITAP retirement Visa

Bali is one of the most pleasant and comfortable destinations for recreation. A good tropical climate, beautiful nature, a fairly high level of medical care, and, of course, the hospitality of residents … And what else do you need for a carefree retirement life? Good news. Indonesian law provides a special visa for the elderly – a Pension visa.

The Kitas pension visa is issued to persons who have reached the age of 55. This visa is a temporary residence permit on the territory of Indonesia. The pension visa is issued for 1 year with an annual extension of up to five years. After 5 years, you can apply for a permanent residence permit.

If one spouse has not reached the age of 55, you can apply for a dependent pension visa, if you have an official marriage certificate. You can also apply for a dependent pension visa for children (under 18 years of age) of the applicant.
