In brief: Permanent
Arterial stents are meant to be permanent and are rarely ever removed.
They can, however, develop restenosis or renarrowing that may require further intervention.

While bioabsorbable stents are in the development pipeline, they are not yet commercially available.
Renal artery stenting is done with permanent stents.
