Guide on permits for foreign researchers in Indonesia

Indonesia has recently passed new national science and technology laws. This new law does not change the requirements for foreign researchers conducting research in Indonesia. There are new penalties being introduced for non-compliance.

The Department of Education with the support of the Indonesian Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education, outlines the process for applying for the permit and visa.

The new law does include some developments which may prove to be conducive to collaboration with Indonesia including the establishment of a new national research and innovation body, a research endowment fund (worth $990m in the first year), and tax incentives for Indonesian companies investing in R&D.

Information regarding the research permit application process can be found at an Indonesian Government site https://frp.ristekdikti.go.id/. Alternatively please consult the guide produced by the Australian Government.
