As an expatriate living in Indonesia, navigating through bureaucratic procedures, especially those related to immigration, can be challenging. One such process is transferring your Limited Stay Permit (KITAS) or Permanent Stay Permit (KITAP) information to a new passport after the expiration of the old one. To simplify this process for you, we’ve outlined the necessary steps and documents required for a smooth transition.

Understanding the Process

When your passport expires, the need to transfer your KITAS/KITAP information to a new passport arises to ensure your legal status remains valid in Indonesia. This process involves more than just obtaining a new passport; it requires submitting certain documents to the immigration office for endorsement. Understanding the steps involved and the required documentation can help expatriates navigate through this bureaucratic procedure with ease.

Required Documents

  1. Perdim 27 Form: Obtain this form from the immigration office. It serves as an application for transferring your permit to the new passport. Note that the Perdim 27 form is only available in Indonesian, which may pose a challenge for non-Indonesian-speaking foreigners. In such cases, assistance from an expert proficient in both Indonesian and the applicant’s native language can be invaluable in accurately filling out the form.
