What has changed
On July 2, 2018, the Ministry Of Manpower announced that as of July 9, 2018, there will be a new integrated Online System with the Directorate General of Immigration in accordance with Presidential Regulation no. 20 of 2018. In order to prepare for the new Online System, any applications made through the current system (Old System) have immediately been stopped. Applications through the Old System could only be submitted until July 3, 2018.
Who is affected
All clients with assignees moving into Indonesia with anticipated filings over the next few weeks.
What to expect
This change is expected to have the following implications:
- All applications through the current system are no longer being accepted.
- From July 4, 2018 until and including July 6, 2018 we can no longer submit any applications as both the old and new system are offline.
- As of Monday July 9, 2018 the new system will go live.
- Due to this being a new system and because there will be a backlog in processing of applications, delays are to be expected.
