Bali has been among the top list of desired places to live after retirement. The warm climate, friendly people, a tolerant culture, and very affordable living costs, are some of the reasons why since decades, people choose to spend their retirement years in Bali.
Foreigners of 55 years of age or older can apply online for a special Retirement Visa, or rather a Temporary Stay Permit (KITAS). It is valid for up to one year and can be extended yearly.
Not for the application Process. You can apply online while you are outside of Indonesia (apply for OFFSHORE KITAS). But yes, you have to go to the immigration office once. Because as a first step, the government will issue a single entry Visit Visa that you will receive as an e-Visa. Then, once you arrive in Indonesia with this visa, you need to go in person to the appointed Immigration Office to take your photo and scan your fingerprints (biometric) – usually within one month after your arrival. During the pandemic, OFFSHORE KITAS is not available.
After this step, the retirement KITAS will be issued. Then the process is concluded.

Or you can also wire the money directly to our local bank in Indonesia in Indonesian Rupiah (IDR).

Due to the current covid situation, on short notice, the Indonesian Immigration office can reduced its service hours which could cause delays and which is out of our control unfortunately. We will keep our applicants informed however, about any updates.
