DPKK Exemption for Investor Stay Permits – If you are investors who hold a position as shareholders, directors, or commissioners with share ownership more than IDR 1,000,000,000 or shareholders who are not the directors or commissioners of the company but own the shares more than IDR 1,120,000,000, then you get the exemption of paying the DPKK or what we called expertise and skill development fund.
This DPKK fund of USD 100 per month or USD 1,200 per year must be paid by the foreigners if they want to investor stay permits in Indonesia which only applied to experts or ordinary foreign workers. They are also still required to use TKA Online for obtaining stay permits.
Before, the investors needed to go to the BPKM office and apply for the recommendation letter offline to get the DPKK exemption. Now, prior to the OSS (Online Single Submission) and SIMKIM (Immigration Management and Information System) integrated system, the investors don’t need to go to the BPKM (Investment Coordinating Board) office anymore.
