FDI: Entry and ownership rule
On 28 December 2015, the Indonesian government issued regulation 103/2015 relaxing the house-owning restrictions for foreigners.
With the new provisions in place, foreign nationals may pass on owned houses as inheritance (art. 2(3) of the regulation), may obtain a right-of-use house ("hak pakai") not only on state land but also on freehold land ("hak milik"). Furthermore, Indonesians will no longer lose their land titles after marrying a foreigner, if the land was not registered as part of the marital property.
Nonetheless, foreigners may still only purchase real estate in Indonesia if they possess a stay permit.
Furthermore, foreigners may own property (after two extensions) up to 80 years. Previously, the limit was set at 70 years (cf. Related Measures).
The regulation came into force on the day of its issuance.
