  • Renew MERP while you are out Indonesia

    Hello everyone  I did read that in the forum


    MERP expiring while you're out of the country?

    Be aware that If the permit is going to expire while you are out of the country, you may lose your ITAS /ITAP if you don't take action. You would then have to go to an Indonesian embassy to apply for a new visa all over again (not another permit).

    We have in the past understood that you cannot apply for an extension to your exit permit from abroad. However, consular offices abroad (in both embassies and consulates) may be able to assist you if you can provide the following, and IF they receive the approval from the Directorate General of Immigration in Jakarta:
    • Passport valid for more than six months from the date of re-entry into Indonesia
    • KITAS/KITAP valid for more than one month past the re-entry date
    • Ticket back to Indonesia
    • Return addressed envelope (to mail your passport back to you)

    If at all possible, it would still be advisable to handle the renewal/extension in Indonesia before you leave the country as it would be much easier to accomplish.

    My questions.

    Is that still valid under the new laws and regulations June 2019?

    Because many things has changed recently

    What is the right way to ask the immigration to send or give that to me or send it to the embassy? 

    Areceive the approval from the Directorate General of Immigration in Jakarta

    My last question I ever heard MERP can be done online is that correct and how I do that?

    Thanks in advance

    (1) This subject is not detailed in the Regulations (as far as I know) and this Forum didn't have any case of MERP issued by an Embassy until few weeks when Gemes got one when outside Indonesia (see Gemes' case here : http://www.livinginindonesiaforum.or...side-indonesia) .

    (2) & (3) It seems Gemes' father-in-law went personally at Jakarta's Immigration Directorate General to request the authorization for the Embassy . Although we can already start visa , ITAS , ITAP , and extensions process online , I guess this type of service will not be available online as it is very rare (I guess I saw 3 members in this situation in 10 years) .

        (a) I guess it is relatively easy (2 visits to Immigration , maybe) .

        (b) I am almost sure you can use an agent , but your sponsor needs to sign the request letter .
