It is important to note that there are significant differences between a permanent resident and a citizen of Indonesia. A permanent resident is granted the right to live in Indonesia on an indefinite basis. Permanent residency also allows one to continue holding the citizenship of the permanent resident’s country of origin. On the other hand, an Indonesian citizen is one who does not require any form of permit to live in Indonesia because Indonesia would be where the citizen born and raised. However, Indonesian citizens are not eligible for dual citizenship according to the laws of the land.
