The Directorate General of Immigration’s website has announced that they have officially launched the Pre-Investment Visit Visa service, which allows global business people and foreign investors to assess investment potential before investing in Indonesia.
Sub-coordinator of Public Relations of the Directorate General of Immigration, Achmad Nur Saleh, said that the Pre-Investment Visa is a solution offered by Immigration to create an increasingly conducive investment climate for middle to upper-class Foreign Citizens (WNA).
“Through the Pre-Investment Visit Visa, Immigration makes it easy for world-class investors to come to Indonesia in order to study and review business potential in the sector they are targeting.
In addition, they can also take care of investor administration with BKPM, lawyers, notaries and others. So, foreigners can prepare everything optimally,” said Achmad on Wednesday (08/02/2023).
The validity period of the Pre-Investment Visit Visa is 180-days with a Non-Tax State Revenue (PNBP) fee of IDR 6,000,000. Pre-investment visit visas can be submitted online through the website molina.imigration.go.id. The applicant does not need a guarantor/ sponsor in Indonesia.
Before making an application, foreigners need to register an account first. After that, foreigners can log in and fill out the form provided. If all data is confirmed to be correct, the process continues to the payment page.
Payment can be made with a credit or debit card bearing the Visa, Mastercard or JCB logo. The card used does not have to be in the name of the foreigner concerned.
“When the application and payment have been completed, the WNA will receive the visa document in electronic form sent via E-Mail,” he concluded.
