    Here is a little more detail pinched from the internet

    Indonesia Engineering Bill Passed Ahead of AEC 2015
    BY DEWI KURNIAWATI ON 28 FEB 2014
    Workers finishing development of a toll road in South Jakarta.
    After ten years of discussion, the House of Representative passed Indonesia engineering bill on Tuesday in a bid to provide a framework for local engineers practising in Indonesia. The bill still has to be signed by the president before it becomes law.
    The bill anticipates an influx of foreign engineers from neighbouring countries come the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) Economic Community in 2015 which will open up the region for an exchange of skilled and professional workers.
    Mr Rully Chairul Azwar, Chairman for the House Special Committee for Engineering Bill, stated that foreign engineers may work in Indonesia, as long as their services are needed. “But they have to be qualified,” he said as quoted by local media after the legislation was passed by the house.
    Some highlighted points of the Indonesia engineering bill are: first, foreign engineers can only practice in Indonesia in accordance with the needs of human resources, science and technology development that has been set by the national government; second, to obtain a work permit, a foreign engineer must have a certificate of registration from the Union of Indonesian engineers (PII) which is based on the registration certificate or certificate of competency; and finally, foreign engineers can provide engineering services in disaster management, or incidental consultation without a work permit, although they should notify relevant ministries prior to starting work.
    Indonesia is said to be the eighth country in Southeast Asia region which regulates professional engineers through statute law, leaving only Myanmar and Laos without such a framework.

    It will be interesting to see what happens to these figures in 2015.

    [COLOR=#333333][FONT=helvetica]Thirdly, AEC 2015 will set loose labor flows in the ASEAN region, resulting in an increase in foreign workers. The Government, asserts Hendri, must establish a strategy to anticipate a flood of foreign labor into Indonesia.[/FONT][/COLOR]

    OK... Here it is (source: Nakertrans/Manpower dept):

    Basically it says that IMTA (foreign worker employment permit) concerning 68.957 foreign worker have been issued by Nakertrans and that the number in the past two years have been decreasing, due to the enforcement of existing regulations. It includes both the "normal" IMTA and the IMTA darurat (emergency employment permit issued for period of 1 to 6 months).

    Keep in mind that the above figure concerns ONLY foreign workers and not any other categories of foreign resident. As a matter of example, I work but am not included in the above statistics due to the specificity of my permit (foreign spouse of a WNI). Anyway, people like me don't account for tens of thousands and the above figure should be pretty accurrate.

    If you want to have an idea of the number of foreign resident in Indonesia, I should also have the figures (or at least may be able to obtain it). For this, Depkumham (Justice and Human Rights dept) statistics are the one to look for.

    Updated expat stats

    Hi guys,

    Sorry for responding to such an old thread, but I was wondering if anybody is aware of any more recent statistics on expats in Indonesia. I (obviously) tried Google but didn't find anything useful.

    Thanks,
    Chris.
