Non-US citizens also need to submit a copy of their US permanent residency, visa, or valid I-20 from schools/universities. Please note that applicants with US tourist visas will not be processed, as they need to apply for an Indonesian visa from their country of origin.

For a family visit, the applicant must also include EITHER:

  • A copy of the KIMS/KITAS (a temporary stay permit issued by Indonesian immigration authorities) of the non-Indonesian principal/person who is sponsoring the visit, or

Foreigners who do not have a KIMS/KITAS cannot sponsor a family visit.
