Student Visa and Permit

Step 1 - Apply for Limited Stay Visa (VITAS/ Visa Tinggal Terbatas)

All international students are required to apply for VITAS prior arrival, and the process will take about 2-3 months for Raffles College to process this at the Ministry of National Education of the Republic of Indonesia. VITAS can then be converted to a KITAS (Limited Stay Permit) once students have arrived in Indonesia.

Please contact us at info@raffles-college.org to give you further assistance on the procedure, fee, etc.

After arriving at Jakarta, you must register at the Immigration Office within 7 (seven) days of the date of your entry permit (a stamp from Airport Immigration) is issued.
