A dependent visa or family reunion visa in Indonesia is a document that allows foreigners to bring their families while settling down in the country. Specifically, a dependent visa enables work permits for KITAS holders to bring their spouses and children under 18 years old.

Technically, a dependent visa is sponsored by the company that sponsored the foreigner’s work permit or KITAS. However, it is important to note that foreign citizens with Indonesian-dependent visas cannot work or earn income from Indonesian companies.

Before a foreigner’s family can apply for an Indonesian dependent visa, they must obtain a limited stay visa (VITAS) to enter the country. Once they have arrived, their VITAS will convert into an Indonesian family visa or dependent visa.

Requirements for obtaining Dependent Visa in Indonesia

An Indonesian family reunion visa or dependent visa will stay valid as long as the KITAS that sponsors it is valid. It is also important to note that the application process for a dependent visa in Indonesia is entirely online and no longer requires you to go to the embassy or consulate-general office. To obtain one for your family members, you must provide essential documents such as

  • A certificate of marriage
  • Children’s birth certificate
  • A copy of your passport with a validity of at least 18 months
