Employers must require their expatriate employees to obtain work permits. Obtaining the necessary visas and work permits in Indonesia can be a protracted and complex process. It is strongly recommended that a prospective employee work with a local agent to obtain the permits and visas necessary to work in Indonesia. Work permits are usually issued for a maximum period of 12 months and may be extended, subject to approvaI from the government.

The Indonesian government prefers that expatriates be employed in Indonesia only in positions that cannot currently be filled by Indonesian nationals. Companies that wish to hire expatriates must provide the necessary education and training programs for Indonesians who will replace the expatriates within a reasonable time period.

Social Security in Indonesia

No social security taxes are imposed other than for worker's accident insurance and the provident fund, called JAMSOSTEK. Employees' contributions for old-age pensions are deductible from taxable income, up to a maximum of 2% of income. Employers must contribute at least 3.7% of wages.
