      I havent read all your comments but if you need to complain ask to speak to the kepala seksi of statuskim. If he doesnt help you ask to speak to kepala kantor imigrasi. Bring your laws to prove you're right. If they dont let you speak to them then go to a different section like inforsakim and say you have a complaint. If none of that works, there is a customer service office at dit jen here in jakarta. Im going there today and I will try to get a number that can put you in direct contact with someone there. No promises on that though.

          Yesterday I talked to Mirhaj at Dit Jen. I told him your situation and he told me you can contact him through this email: alihstatus@hotmail.com. He assured emails to this address will not go unanswered, so that's a starting point you can use. They seem pretty professional there so probably worth a try. Good luck.

                    Selamat pagi,

                    You will have to excuse me as I am saving up for a half brain transplant. I see that there have been more than 1500 posts on this issue so at some point I am going to have to devote a week to going through it all to get a proper handle on everything.
                    In the meantime, perhaps Atlantis or someone can answer these two questions.
                    If I am being sponsored by an Indonesian wife do I (as an Australian citizen) still have to show evidence of a certain level of income and if so approximately how much per annum is deemed adequate?

                    Yours tropically, Harry

                      You do not require evidence of funds for spouse sponsored KITAS. Last time I extended my KITAS the lady at the counter returned my bank statement.

                        KITAS sponsored by an Indonesian wife of a foreign

                        Thank you Dafluff for your response.
                        I had also meant to ask about Manado as a visa processing place. If we obtain the preliminary sponsorship visa from the Indonesian Embassy in Canberra is it feasible that we could then complete the process in Manado or should we stay in Bali until the permanent residence application is completed? And might we, either way, still have to go to Jakarta?

                          I only showed my bank statement when I had applied for my social visa the first(think it had to be at least $2,000 USD). After that never came up when I extended my social visa or applied for the KITAS.
                          My wife is my sponsor and it didn't come up with her.

                          To be on the safe side, I try to keep my US account at a certain amount just in case they were to ask.

                            I am going to answer two ways, because it depends on what you mean by "perliminary sponsorship visa".

                            If you get a VITAS, it basically means that you are already approved for KITAS. All the work has been done abroad. You just have to go to Immigration within a week or so of arrival for the formality to convert it. This is typically done by expats sponsored to work in Indonesia, although it may be possible to do for spousal sponsored as well. I have never done it this way.

                            If you get Sosial Budaya, then you have to convert it to KITAS once you are in country. This has to be done at the Immigration Office (Kantor Imigrasi - KanIm) that has jurisdiction over the area where your sponsor's KTP is located. So if your wife has a KTP from Bali, then that is where you will get this done. If your wife has a Menado KTP, then you will have to do it in Menado. Trip to Jakarta is not necessary.

                              (1) Some few Indonesian Embassies (in USA for example , don't know about others) require proof of financial capability for issuing some kind of visas . Long time ago , Atlantis told us that some Rp2'500'000 per month should be enough (so Rp5'000'000 for a Visit Visa , Rp30'000'000 for an one year VITAS) .

                              For getting a KITAS , I don't remember having any poster mentioning he/she was requested to present it .

                              (2) The one year KITAS sponsored by your Indonesian wife that you are eligible for , has to be issued in the Indonesian city where your wife has/will have a KTP . Some cities issue a Tempoary KTP , if the case , you better check at the local Kantor Imigrasi if they accept it .

                              In addition to what Dafluff said above , if you didn't get the Visa yet , the Social Cultural & Family Visit Visa gives you more time (150 days) for your wife to get the required KTP and KK . VITAS gives her only 30 days .

                              (3) In the VITAS to KITAS case , you deal with them at the beginning for the issuance of the telex Visa for the VITAS . In the Visit Visa to KITAS , you deal with Jakarta later , but you can do it through courier/mail .

                                Thank you Marcus, Chris and Dafluff,

                                I told you I had half a brain ... I also meant to ask (how long is a piece of string) what might be a reasonable expectation for processing from beginning to end?
