Spouse sponsored marriage KITAS in Indonesia

Getting a spouse sponsored KITAS can turn out to be a part-time job for you in Indonesia. In this article, we will give you an overview of the process of acquiring a spouse sponsored marriage KITAS in Indonesia.

Indonesian spouse visa requirements

In order for you to apply for this visa, sometimes referred to as the family or marriage KITAS, you have to be married to an Indonesian citizen and have an official marriage certificate acknowledged by the Indonesian government. If you get married abroad, you need to have a CNI (Certificate of No Impediment to marriage). In that case, the CNI and the marriage certificate have to be translated into Indonesian and legalized in Indonesia.



What happens in the case of a divorce?

When your marriage has lasted for 10 years, it will no longer influence your ability to stay in the country with your KITAP. Meaning that if you get divorced after a decade of marriage – we do not think that is the magic number when you get tired of your spouse – but according to the law, you can stay in Indonesia regardless of your marital status.

False and outdated information

In order to provide you with the best and most up-to-date information on these visas, we have checked all the recent changes in legislation for this article. Even though immigration officers have a tendency to lag behind everyone else when it comes to being aware of these laws, they have to follow them once demonstrated on paper. Also, information that was at some point extremely useful on forum sites becomes outdated and therefore misleading.
