I am an Aussie now in Jakarta. Married to an Indonesian national on January 30 this year. I arrived back in Indonesia 3 May currently in Indonesia on a tourist visa. My understanding is that I can apply for a spouse visa 'KITAS". However, preceding that is another type of visa 'VITAS' - limited stay permit visa.
I have read Protected content that you must apply for a KITAS within seven days of arriving in Indonesia. My thinking is that a 'VITAS' will buy time while we organise a KITAS.
Yes, OMG. Ok now...
1. is it true that you must apply for a kitas within seven days and if not so what? do i go to Singapore and reset the tourist (the same as vitas?) visa then do the kitas within the (new) seven day period? 2. how long is a VITAS valid for? 3. If I get this vitas (assuming it is not in fact the tourist visa) can I then go back to the seven day limit requirement and get the KITAS application within seven days of having obtained a vitas? 4.. Can anyone recommend a reliable visa agent in Jakarta for this sort of business. 5. A psychiatrist would be handy also
