Regulation of the Minister of Law and Human Rights No. 13 of 2022 on Electronic Information System for Immigration Card Facilities at Immigration Checkpoints
Enforcement Date: 28 November 2022
- Electronic Information System for Immigration Cards (“EIS-I Cards”) are cards that contain various types of electronic data, specifically personal data, biometric data, photographs, travel records and other required data. This card can be issued to foreign/Indonesian citizens who can then use it to enter the territory of Indonesia through official immigration checkpoints (that have been equipped with EIS-I Card readers). Furthermore, EIS-I Cards have a maximum validity period of five years and may be extended for a further year.
- This regulation emphasizes that EIS-I Cards should also be used by foreign citizens and Indonesian citizens whenever traveling to/from Special Economic Zones (Kawasan Ekonomi Khusus/KEK) to ensure easier immigration processing.
- To secure an EIS-I Card, Indonesian/foreign citizens should submit their applications to the relevant immigration official in either electronic or non-electronic form. Prior to submitting their applications, Indonesian/foreign citizens must meet various requirements, as set out under this regulation.
