See the new threadArticle 185: Golden Visa is a Kitas or Kitap given for the purposes of investment, family union, repatriation, and second home. These may be given for a period of 5 or 10 years.
Looks like this is more about 'new' applicants or those who are interested in doing KITAS without a sponsor...my KITAP will be needing an extension in 2025 (the lifetime) and we'll see how smooth the reporting will be! The $150K while not too bad of a requirement still I'm more nervous about the Indo government getting into the 'ah you got money, let's see whatelse we can get outta ya" deal...
This is 5, not 10 yearsArticle 54: Ex-WNIs can apply for a 10-year Kitas without requiring a sponsor. But will be required to commit to buying a minimum of $35k's worth of government bonds, 35k's worth of publicly listed company stocks, and 35k's worth of mutual fund within 90 days of obtaining the Kitas.
I vaguely remember that too...could be anybody but i think then i saw a discussion about the sponsor needs to submit a bank statement with a minimum of certain amount but maybe i'm mistaken and mixed it up with something else.If I remember correctly, in the past, the sponsor could be anyone with Indonesian nationality and who resides in Indonesia. But now, it seems they are limited to the husband, wife, father, mother, or children who are 21 years old or older. Siblings, nephews, friends, and other relatives are not included, is that correct?
From Article 1,
21. Penanggung Jawab adalah suami, istri, ayah, ibu, atau anak yang sudah berusia 21 (dua puluh satu) tahun atau lebih, yang merupakan warga negara Indonesia.
21. Responsible person (is it the same with sponsor ?) is husband, wife, father, mother, or children who are 21 (twenty one) years old or more, who are Indonesian citizens.
