  • Question about spouse visa and work

    Hello, My name is Pawel im 25 years old guy from Poland. I am following this forum for a long time but this is the first time when I decided to register and write something.

    In few months I will finish my master's in Indonesia and I would like to find some legal job after that in Indonesia. I like this country and I would like to live here. I know that this is very hard thing for freshgraduate with a little work experience... However I have an Indonesian girlfriend and we plan to get married soon. As far as I know, when someone is married to Indonesian it is allowed to work as a freelancer without special work permit- and here is my question's :

    1. Is the freelance job avaliable only on ITAP (5 years) spouse visa or also on the ITAS ( 1 year visa which need to be extended for the second time before apply for ITAS)
    2. As I am living in Indonesia since 2015, is there any posibility to try to apply straight for 5 years ITAP spouse visa? During my stay in Indonesia, I had have ITAS student visa 4 times, while the last two years (on going till august 2018) is the 2 year's uninterrupted stay (after 1st year I extended ITAS inside the country, without EPO).

    Thanks for any tips,
    Pawel

    1. If freelancing is possible , it will be for ITAS & ITAP (sponsored by Indonesian spouse) .

    But I warn you , before getting the ITAS , you should confirm that possibility with your local Manpower Department office . This because I have heard that recently Manpower have stated that EVERY foreigner must get a Work Permit to work in Indonesia , in accordance to the Indonesian Manpower Law . If the Law is to be applied in full to your case , you can only work as an employee of a Indonesian based company .

    2. No . The only way to get an ITAP is through an ITAS + an Indonesian spouse sponsored ITAP is only possible after 2 years of marriage .

    What may be possible in your case is to change from Student ITAS to Indonesian spouse sponsored ITAS (by sponsor change) , and so after 2 years marriage you can get your ITAP .
