Image of 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.

Now is the Right Time for Villas Investment in Bali

INFO NASIONAL – The Covid-19 pandemic hit Indonesia in early 2020 and created uncertainty in various sectors, ranging from social, political, to economic. This condition also has a major impact on the province of Bali, which is one of the spearheads of Indonesian tourism and the mainstay of the country's economy, especially from foreign and domestic tourist visits.However, data from the Bank Indonesia Bali Representative Office shows that Domestic Investment (PMDN) during 2020 reached IDR 5,432.7 billion and Foreign Investment (PMA) reached a value of 293.3 million US dollars. This indicates that Bali is still attractive to investors who are still optimistic about the development of the Covid-19 pandemic situation in Bali.Other data comes from the international research institute Knight Frank Global which notes that the super-rich in the Ultra High Net Worth Individual (UHNWI) category in Indonesia jumped by 67 percent in the 2020-2025 period. Interestingly, 25-28 percent of their funds are invested in the property sector. Based on this data series, even though it is still in a pandemic situation, the property sector in Bali is still attractive to investors because it is considered to have a positive trend.The economic recovery in the property sector in Bali has been strengthened by the reopening of the Bali airport for local tourists since August 2020. This has caused the residential occupancy rate in Bali to slowly begin to increase again. In addition, the Indonesian government through the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (Kemenparekraf) is finalizing a plan to open Bali tourism for foreign tourists (tourists) in June or July 2021.Regarding various efforts to restore the economy in Bali, villa property in Bali is one of the promising investments and has strategic value during the pandemic. The return of investment (ROI) for villa investment in Bali is at least 10 percent because the average occupancy is 70 percent per year.Maybe in the past Bali was better known for its popular tourist destinations for domestic and foreign travelers. But now, the Island of the Gods is starting to be seen as a potential area for those who want to enter the world of property investment, especially in the form of villas.Interestingly, even potential areas are now not only centered in famous areas such as Kuta, Seminyak or Ubud. The emergence of many new tourist destinations has also contributed to the emergence of new areas that are predicted to develop rapidly over the next few years, such as Villas in the Canggu area.Canggu is known as an area inhabited by expatriates from various countries. Thus, no wonder, public facilities are also fairly complete and easy to reach. Everything is available, from modern and traditional markets, hospitals, to international standard schools.Property industry investors in Bali assure that after the Covid-19 pandemic crisis has passed, the villa investment market in Bali has the potential to experience a "market boom". Well, now is the best opportunity to invest in a villa in Bali.Investors will be in a strategic position to resell the property at a rate of multiples of profit when the economy improves in the future. Moreover, various online booking sites and a number of tour and travel platforms place Bali as one of the most desirable locations to visit or stay after the pandemic.There is no doubt, Villa in Bali is a promising long-term investment during the pandemic. Property purchased as an investment in popular areas such as Canggu or Seminyak can provide a very attractive long-term return on investment. So, now is the right time to invest in the property sector in preparation for the surge in the property market after the upcoming pandemic.   Copyright :

Magical Melukat: Purifying Our Mind, Body & Soul

Melukat is just one of Bali’s magical rituals which involves using water as a ritual cleanser. The aim is to cleanse both body and mind, to refresh the spirit and dissolve away any negative influences. It is also believed to cure non medical diseases and sickness of the spirit and whether it does or not, a session bathing in holy waters will certainly make you feel good.Many of these places exist in Bali, with the best known and most visited ones are hidden around the Tirtha Empul area. Yet, Tirtha Sudamala Temple remains surprisingly unvisited, and delightfully pristine. Descending the steep road and carved granite steps, you get the feeling that you are discovering something really special. Something unknown.Early morning is the best time to visit, while the air is cool and fresh. Sometimes Bali’s youngest Perdanda – ( high Priestess) is in attendance, although the day we went, she was busy elsewhere. She is said to arrive around 8am and will stay for some time to give blessings to her devoted followers.In technical terms, Melukat derives from the old Javanese word “lukat” which means to “cleanse” or “purify” while the Indonesian meaning is “to let go” or release something within us. Self purification is sought by many Hindus and in India, the devoted throng to the banks of the holy Ganges River with a similar purpose. It is a ritual that can be performed many times, in fact the more, the merrier as it can only lead to good things.After the ritual bathing is done, it is a steep walk up the hill, but the Balinese, being service oriented, have motorbikes awaiting the lazy. What a great invention! So a quick and painless ride back to the top of the hill brings us to several warungs serving a host of local delights. Coffee, a cold coke, a ketupat concoction with vegetables and steamed rice, and several other culinary treats are there to be enjoyed. You can just choose what you will. A few local people sell fruit from their own gardens as well as sweet potatoes and if you are lucky, the especially delicious Bangle avocados, the best on the island. It is all a really wonderful way to start the day, or the week, or even the rest of your life!   Source :
