  • Uninterrupted stay?

    The foreign wife or husband of an Indonesian citizen has to stay for five full uninterrupted years on an ITAS or ITAP as (one of) the prerequisites to apply for Indonesian citizenship.

    What do they mean by uninterrupted stay? Is it possible to leave the country for a few weeks with a permit or not?

    This means that if you have 5 years on 5 KITAS or 1 KITAP from 2010 to 2015, you're fine. But if you have 2 years on 2 KITAS from 2010 to 2012 and then nothing in 2013 and then back to Indonesia on KITAP for 3 years from 2014 to 2017, it won't work.

    But you can still go on holiday with your multi exit re-entry permit.

      (1) I saw somewhere in this Forum that "5 years uninterrupted stay" means no "Exit Permit Only"/EPO or "Return Immigration documents" stamp in your passport during this 5 years period . Better confirm this at the province's Immigration office (Kantor Wilayah) .

      (2) Yes , but with a valid Re-entry Permit , as El_Goretto wrote above .
