  • Marrage and "Digital Nomad" work status

    Hi All,

    Total newbie here

    I'm looking to move to Jakarta and then Bali. I have been with my girlfriend (Indonesian Citizen)for 3 years and have been travelling from the UK and Malaysia to see her over this period. We are looking to get married this year in Java.

    She is working on the details for this but I have a few questions that maybe someone could help with:

    - On arriving in Jakarta (As a UK Citizen) would I just get a VOA or is there a VISA I should be getting to allow me to marry?
    - Once married do I need to apply to stay and what do I need to do?
    - I have a company in the UK, pay taxes in the UK, but I work online so can work anywhere. Is this OK? do I have to declare this?

    I know these are newbie type questions but that's where I am at the moment.

    Cheers

    1- You can marry in Indonesia wit any kind of visa , so choose the visa type according to how long you want to stay in Indonesia . But , as far as I know , due to the coronavirus krisis you cannot come yet .

    2- If you plan to live in Indonesia after the marriage , your best option is the (single entry) Social Visa (B211A) sponsored by you Indonesian girlfriend , because it allows you to request an one year Stay Permit/KITAS after the marriage (sponsored by the Indonesian wife) . see links below .

    3- The present Indonesian Laws do not cover this kind of situation , so I think it would be better if you talk about that with 3 Indonesian Departments : Immigration , manpower , and Tax .
    I guess that , after marriage , for you to fully comply with the present Laws , would be : your Indonesian wife opening a small business , you working informally in it , your business in UK having a business relationship with your wife's Indonesian business , and Indonesian Tax being paid as business tax (not personal tax) .
