As Indonesia attracts foreigners to move to Indonesia for work opportunities or to incorporate a company, there is a high chance that they have a spouse or child that they would want to bring with them. That is where the Dependant Visa comes in.
Before you can work in Indonesia, you will need a work visa so as to avoid being denied entry into the country. Once the work visa is secured, you may then proceed to utilise a dependent visa in order to bring any eligible family members to Indonesia.
A dependent visa is a visa which enables the dependent of a person, primarily a spouse or child, to travel to the country in their capacity as a dependent.
It should be noted that in most countries, the dependent visa can be used for different purposes. Some might choose to use it for purposes of employment while others may prefer to use it for leisure activities such as vacations.
A dependent visa holder can be allowed into the corresponding country as long as the dependent visa holder adheres to all the existing visa laws of the country.
This means that one needs to ensure the visa belonging to the primary visa holder needs to be renewed occasionally so that it does not expire. After the dependent visa expires, an individual becomes liable to certain legal consequences.
