Dependent VISA ( KITAS)
Who is the Dependent Visa (KITAS) for, and what are the benefits?
This Dependent Visa is for you if you are visiting Indonesia with a family member who holds a KITAS. The husbands/wives and children of a primary KITAS holder are eligible for this visa. Once you have this visa, you will be able to create bank accounts, register a mobile phone, and take use of a variety of other services available to Indonesian citizens.
The holder of a Dependent KITAS is not allowed to work; but, if you decide to work later, you can apply for an IMTA and earn money. Please keep in mind that this isn’t a full-time job, and if you do get paid, you’ll need to register for an NPWP (Tax ID) and file yearly Individual Tax Reports.

If you do manage to obtain a full-time employment, you should apply for a Working KITAS and move your sponsor to your new company. Click here to learn more about the Working KITAS.
The duration of the Dependent Visa will be determined by the terms of the primary KITAS; for example, if the primary KITAS is for one year, the Dependent KITAS will also be for one year.
