I am generally asking for real advice as I am quite unsure regarding my status. I am a South Korean individual who has been working in HK and graduated university from HK but have graduated middle, high school in Indonesia. My uncle and aunt has been running a business in Indonesia for over 6 years now.

My question is this, I want to relocate back to Indonesia but I am a non Indonesian citizen and have no visa or permit whatsoever. However I wish to work with my uncle and aunt, given that there business is doing very good and quite big. How likely is it for me to get my Work KITAS sponsored if my uncle's company wishes to sponsor me? Especially given the covid - 19 situation (just to let you know my current work has nothing to do with what my uncle's company is doing but I can definitely work in that new environment as I possess the necessary skills).

I know this is a very generic question but I just want to have a rough idea to the possibility before I actually ask my uncle to sponsor me. I would appreciate some general advice on my situation and the likelihood of obtaining a Work KITAS.

It depends on your uncle's company. If it is properly registered and a PT (limited liability corporation), then they can sponsor a foreign worker. The rest is just paperwork, and massaging your qualifications with your uncle's company's needs.

Just keep in mind that many still look at the regulation that no foreigner can be employed in a position that an Indonesian is qualified to do. Some get around it by saying they are bringing in foreign management. Thise seems to have worked very well for the Chinese.
