COMPLIANCE CORNER – Increased Inspections in Indonesia

May 20, 2024

There has been an increase in onsite immigration inspections in Indonesia in Q2 of 2024. Companies should be aware that foreign nationals who provided office addresses instead of residential addresses on their applications were questioned.

It is recommended for applicants to furnish authorities with a residential address, be it temporary or permanent, to avoid legal repercussions. Prompt notification to the authorities on any changes in the residential address of foreign nationals is imperative to mitigate potential legal risks.

Ensuring timely updates of residential addresses for foreign employees is essential for compliance with regulatory requirements. Non-compliance can disrupt work permit processing and compromise legal standing. Therefore, implementing control measures is vital to adhere to regulations and minimize risks. Additionally, maintaining current addresses facilitates efficient communication between authorities and foreign nationals, streamlining administrative processes and enhancing overall compliance.
