The warm climes of Indonesia have attracted the attention of retirees from colder climes. While many come for a one-month stay on a tourist visa, there is now a way to stay longer, on a retirement visa.
The retirement visa allows you to live in Indonesia, make multiple trips out of Indonesia during the year, open a local bank account, and get a drivers license, etc. You can NOT do work of any kind in Indonesia on this visa, nor can you legally work remotely with a company in another country on this visa.
Indonesian retirement visa is a temporary residence permit for those over 55 years old, is valid for 1 year with an option of a yearly extension for up to 5 years.
If one of the spouses is younger than 55 years, she/he can obtain a depending retirement visa if a marriage certificate is available. Also, dependable retirement visa can be issued to the applicant’s children under 18 years of age.

The Immigration Department has issued the long-awaited revisions to regulations that allow the granting of temporary stay permits for those over 55 years of age. This facility to provide renewable stay permits of one year’s duration was originally announced and regulated in February 1998.
In the first few years after the regulations were issued few retirees were actually able to actually get the visa due to the strict requirements. Subsequent revisions brought the requirements within closer reach of the financial capabilities of more retirees.
