The Minister of Law and Human Rights, Yasonna Laoly, has revealed that President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has instructed him to expedite the finalisation of the rules regarding the Golden Visa.

“We are currently in the process of drafting the revision of the government regulation. The president has requested its completion this June,” stated Laoly at the State Palace in Jakarta on Monday, 12th June 2023.

Laoly further mentioned that the Golden Visa would have a validity period of five to ten years.

Previously, the Minister of Investment and Head of the Investment Coordinating Board, Bahlil Lahadalia, stated that the government would issue Golden Visas to investors and individuals with specific expertise, granting them a residence permit for several years. This initiative aims to attract investors and skilled individuals to contribute to the country.
