INDONESIA – Implementation of New Bridging Visa

June 6, 2024

By: Patricia Clarino

Immigration authorities in Indonesia announced the introduction of a new Transitional Stay Permit, also known as a Bridging Visa. The measure aims to simplify the visa transition process for foreign nationals who are in Indonesia. The Transitional Stay Permit acts as a temporary visa that allows the foreign national to remain in-country from the expiration of the previous permit and the issuance of a new one. Once the permit is issued, it will be valid for 60 days and will be invalidated if the foreign national leaves the country.   

While the implementation of the visa was scheduled for early this month, it is important to note that this visa option remains unavailable in the immigration system at the time of writing this alert.
