(4/9/2011)

The Indonesian House of Representatives (DPR-RI) has approved draft legislation that promises an unprecedented level ease for foreign residents.

A plenary session of the DPR-RI on Thursday, April 7, 2011, had three "foreign-friendly" regulations included in the draft immigration law now given the green light by legislators.

The highlight of these changes:

· Foreign investors can obtain permanent residency in Indonesia if they meet certain criteria. While foreign investors in the past had to stay in Indonesia for five years before applying for permanent residency, the new rules shorten that requirement to three years.

· Permanent residency will be given to families of "mixed marriages" between Indonesian and foreign nationals. This facility will extend to husbands, wives and children of such unions.

· Permanent residency without a time limit will be given to certain investors married to Indonesian citizens which can be renewed without payment every five years at an immigration office.

· Discrimination towards the offspring of "mixed marriages" between Indonesians and foreign nationals is expected to end with the new immigration law. Children resulting from such unions are entitled to Indonesian citizenship and allowed to permanently stay in Indonesia.

· Children of "mixed marriages" who are living overseas but wish to become Indonesian citizens will be facilitated with temporary citizenship identification valid for two years. After the two-year period they can obtain permanent residence in Indonesia.
