ASEAN movement of natural person (MNP) agreement was signed to liberalise and to eliminate barriers in the temporary cross-border movement of natural persons involved in the trade in goods, trade in services and investment towards the free flow of skilled labour in ASEAN. By using panel data of ASEAN-5 countries during period 2007-2016, this study aimed to find the evidence whether ASEAN agreement on movement of natural person was brought positive or negative effect on skilled workers mobility from ASEAN-5 countries into Indonesia. By using feasible generalised least square (FGLS) estimation methods, we found that during period 2007-2016, ASEAN agreement on movement of natural person (MNP) brought significantly positive effect on skilled migrant workers mobility from ASEAN-5 countries to Indonesia. Moreover, it was also found by decomposing skilled migrant workers by job title, the manager, director, consultant, and commissioner mobility was significantly positive affected by ASEAN agreement on MNP.
