  • Spouse sponsored KITAS (NPWP question)


    After many years of having a KITAS sponsored by my employer, I'm hoping to have my next one sponsored by my wife.

    I read somewhere that we need to provide a copy of my wife's NPWP as part of the process. The problem is, she's now a housewife and has never previously had a NPWP. However, I have one myself.

    So, I'm just wondering if anyone knows if that will cause a problem or not when we apply?

    NPWP was never required in your case , and as far as I know it is not required now too .

    I heard there is a new rule for sponsors that will start being applied next year , which will require more from sponsors (proof of having some available amount of money) . But even this will not be applicable to your case , as by Law the Indonesian spouse doesn't need to be financially responsible for the foreign spouse .

    UU no.6 Tahun 2011 - Immigration Law , not an official translation
    Article 63
    (1) Foreigner residing in Indonesia must have a sponsor that guarantees his/her existence.

    (2) The sponsor is responsible for the existence and activities of the foreigner and has the duty to report any change in the foreigner's : civil status, immigration status, and address changes.

    (3) The sponsor has to pay the costs incurred to repatriate the foreign or removes the guarrantee if the foreigner :

    a. has an expired residence permit and / or

    b. is subjected to the Immigration Administrative Measures' Deportation.

    (4) The provisions concerning the guarantee do not apply to foreigners who are legally married with Indonesians .
