Employing Expatriates in Indonesia

The employment of expatriates in Indonesia is regulated by the Menteri Tenaga Kerja (Manpower Ministry). Visas for expatriates are issued by the Directorate Jenderal of Immigration, under the Ministry of Justice. There are many documents that are required and need to be processed by these two government entities in order for a foreigner to work and live in Indonesia.
