Internship Visa Explanation
Visa and KITAS is two different things.
- The Indonesian visa and permit system can be confusing. Not least because there are many different stories available and information is not transparent. Learn more about the pro’s and con’s for each type of visa and how we can help you to process yours according to your individual internship plans in Indonesia.

A visa is issued by an Indonesian Embassy or Consulate upon approval from the Immigration Office in Jakarta. A visa entitles the holder to travel to Indonesia and apply for admission; it does not guarantee entry. An immigration officer at the port of entry determines the visa holder’s eligibility for admission into Indonesia.
An important points to be aware of is that a “limited stay” – student visa that is required for internships in Indonesia falls under “educational activities” and is definitely not a work permit. If you do your internship in Indonesia you are not allowed to do any paid work activities. In case you decide you want to continue your career in Indonesia after doing one or more internships, we can inform you about the pro’s and con’s and visa requirements.
There are two types of Visa:
a. Visit Visa:
Visit Visa can be claimed for maximum 30 days and acquired based on two different ways, “On Arrival” (secured immediately on the airport) and “Single or Multiple Entry Visa” (secured in the Indonesian Embassy).
b. Limited Stay Permit Visa:
Limited Stay Permit Visa is divided into several indexes based on the purpose of stay, among others: for business, for social culture, for investment, for repatriation also for education (which Internship included in this index).
For doing your internship a kitas is NOT required as internships fall under “educational” activities.
Meanwhile, KITAS is Limited Stay Permit which you can use as a proof evidence of your existence in Indonesia. It is issued by Immigration Office where an expat domicile in. By having this KITAS card then you will get some facilities from the Indonesian government, among others: opening an account in bank on your own name; buying and owning a vehicle; allowing to have driver’s license (SIM) from the Indonesian police department; having personal tax payer registration number (NPWP) issued by taxation office.
