West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) government deemed the 2022 MotoGP pre-season testing at Mandalika Circuit held from February 11-13 a blessing to promote tourism.“Alhamdulillah (Praise to God), NTB receives a blessing from the MotoGP pre-season events.

In the future, there will also be more gates for promotion. So we all have to be prepared,” he added.Central Lombok Tourism Agency head Lendek Jayadi also shared a similar view that the international motorcycle racing event was a great moment for tourism promotion.“This MotoGP is a great promotional moment, especially with the help of the riders. We surely need to create an extraordinary image of the region,” he added.Jayadi thus encouraged all stakeholders and the local community to keep developing tourism in NTB province to spoil tourists.

Press Release : Government Imposes New Tariffs for Immigration Services, VoA and VITAS Unchanged

The government regulates the new tariffs for immigration services through Minister of Finance Regulation (PMK) Number 9/PMK.02/2022 concerning Types and Tariffs for Types of Non-Tax State Revenue (PNBP) on Immigration Services Applicable to the Ministry of Law and Human Rights of the Republic of Indonesia. This regulation is effective 60 days from its promulgation, which falls on Saturday (16/4/2022).Previously, the tariff for immigration services was regulated in Government Regulation (PP) No. 28 of 2019. This new PMK regulates tariffs for new services that have not been accommodated in PP 28 of 2019 as well as changes to several service rates.“There is a new immigration service that is mandated by the Job Creation Act and the tariff must be accommodated. In terms of visas, the only thing that changes is the tariff for the visit visa. For services that are not listed in the PMK, the tariff still refers to PP 28 of 2019, Visa on Arrival (VoA), for example, the tariff is still Rp. 500.000,-, as well as the extension. Nothing has changed,” explained Plt. Director General of Immigration, Widodo Ekatjahjana.A significant difference in this new PMK is the change in rates for a One-Trip Visit Visa. As of April 16, the Visit Visa is valid for 60 days at a rate that was previously USD 50, now costs Rp. 2.000.000,- for a Visit Visa (VK) other than a tourist destination. As for VK tours, foreigners have to pay Rp. 1.500.000,-. This rate includes the previous visa processing fee of Rp. 200,000,-. The good news is that a visit stay permit from this type of visa can be extended for the next 60 days at a cost of Rp. 2.000.000,-.“For a Limited Stay Visa, the terms and rates do not change. Still referring to the old rules,” said Widodo.Regarding the changes and new rules for residence permit service tariffs, Widodo further explained.“In this PMK, in addition to the pre-investment visit stay permit (ITK), many regulations are also set regarding limited stay permits (ITAS) not in the context of working for a second home. As of April 16 tomorrow, both have not been applied because the pre-investment Visit Visa and VITAS for the second house have not yet been submitted. This second home ITAS is a new service, the same as ITK for pre-investment. The new tariff that is already in effect is only a visit stay permit with a validity period of 60 days.”In short, although PMK Number 9/PMK.02/2022 regulates various kinds of immigration service tariffs, the tariffs imposed on Saturday (16/4) are only One-Trip Visit Visa, Tourist Visit Visa and Extension of a 60-day Visit Stay Permit. The application of other service tariffs is still waiting for the relevant legal product, or it has not been opened yet considering that the Covid 19 pandemic has not been declared over and Indonesia is still applying for a limited visa grant.RECAPITULATION OF TYPES AND RATE FOR TYPES OF PNBP RELATED TO PMK NO. 9/PMK.02/2022 AND PP NO. 28 YEAR 2019NOVISA TYPEPRICEUNITINFORMATION  1Visit Visa One-Trip Maximum 60 DaysRp2.000.000,00Per PersonPMK No.9/PMK.02/2022   2Single-Trip Visit Visa Maximum 180DayRp6.000.000,00 Per PersonPMK No.9/PMK.02/2022  3One-time Visit Visa in the Context of Travel for a Maximum of 60 DaysRp1.500.000,00Per PersonPMK No.9/PMK.02/2022   4Multiple Visit VisaTrip Times Calculated per YearRp3.000.000,00Per PersonPMK No.9/PMK.02/2022  5Current Visit Visa onArrival (VOA)Rp500.000,00Per PersonPP No. 28 Tahun2019 (UNCHANGED)   6Limited Stay VisaUS$150.00 Per applicationPP No. 28 Tahun 2019 (UNCHANGED)   7Limited Stay Visa Notin Order to Work for a Second HomeRp3.000.000,00Per applicationPMK No.9/PMK.02/2022    8Limited Stay Visa Not in Order to Work for a Second Home for Followers(Husband/Wife/Kids/Parents)Rp2.000.000,00Per PersonPMK No.9/PMK.02/2022  9Visit Stay Permit Validity Period Maximum 60 DaysRp2.000.000,00 Per applicationPMK No.9/PMK.02/2022   10Visit Stay Permits Valid for Maximum 180 Daysfor PreinvestRp6.000.000,00Per applicationPMK No.9/PMK.02/2022 11Extension of Visiting PermitValidity Period 30 daysRp500.000,00 Per applicationPP No. 28 Tahun2019 (UNCHANGED)    12Limited Stay Permits Not in the Context of Working for a Second Home with a PeriodMaximum Stay 5 YearsRp12.000.000,00Per applicationPMK No.9/PMK.02/2022   13Limited Stay Permit Not in the Context of Working for a Second Home For Followers (Husband/Wife/Children/Parents) with a Maximum Stay Period of 5 YearsRp3.500.000,00Per PersonPMK No.9/PMK.02/2022   14Permanent Stay Permit Not in the Context of Working for a Second House with a Maximum Stay Period of 5 YearsRp15.000.000,00Per applicationPMK No.9/PMK.02/202215Permanent Stay Permit Not in the Context of Working for a Second Home for Followers (Husband/Wife/Child/Parents) with a Maximum Stay Period of 5 YearsRp5.000.000,00Per PersonPMK No.9/PMK.02/2022   16Permanent Stay Permit Not in the Context of Working for a Second House with an Indefinite PeriodRp30.000.000,00Per application PMK No.9/PMK.02/2022   17Permanent Stay Permit Not in the Context of Working for a Second Home for Followers (Husband/Wife/Children/Parents) with No TermLimited Rp15.000.000,00Per Person PMK No.9/PMK.02/2022  18Re-entry Permit Validity Period of 5 (five) years Special for AreasSpecial Economics (SEZ)Rp3.250.00,00Per applicationPP No. 28 Tahun 2019 (UNCHANGED)  19Re-entry Permits Valid for a Maximum of 5 Years in the Context of a Second House Rp6.000.000,00Per application PMK No.9/PMK.02/2022   20Re-entry Permits are valid for a maximum of 5 years in the context of a second home for followers(Husband/Wife/Child/Parent)Rp1.500.000,00Per PersonPMK No.9/PMK.02/2022 Source :
