Indonesia’s Ministry of Law and Human Rights recently introduced the Diaspora Visa, which is designed for former Indonesian citizens who seek an extended stay of 5 or 10 years. This innovative visa program aims to provide a sense of belonging for those who hold foreign citizenship.
Additionally, the expatriate authorization process makes it easier for Indonesian migrants to apply for a residence permit, thereby simplifying the pathway for them.
