      Look for another agent . This price is absurd , if it is just for the Telex Visa ("pre-approval" of a VITAS) , unless the agent will help in getting the necessary difficult documents too , or there is another problem with your case .

      But unfortunately you may not find (according to this Forum's posts) any agent who can do a conversion of a Sosbud into a KITAS (your case and what we normally recommend) . They are used to go through the Telex Visa path , which requires you to leave Indonesia to get the VITAS (Visa for a KITAS) instead .


      Agents (I don't know any of them) :

      Note : prices listed are the old ones (there was an official increase of around Rp50'000 to Rp250'000) and do not include MERP (Rp1'000'000 for one year) which now may be automatically issued with the KITAS .

        Sorry for the confusion. She charged a "package fee" of 7.5 juta. I asked for the breakdown which I posted before. Yep I still have to pick it up in Singapore I believe. Problem is this is the agent from my future employer...
        I have supplied all required documents from my side I believe.

          If this cost of 7.5 juta is important to you , just ask your employer to provide you with the conventional "work" KITAS/MERP + IMTA , both sponsored and paid by the employer . There is no big advantage in having a "spouse sponsored" KITAS , as far as I know .

            I applied online at imigrasi.co.id and I was approved for my sponsored indonesian wife VITAS last week. I plan to fly to the singapore Embassy next month to pick up the telex. What do I tell the Singapore embassy? Is there a VITAS telex in my name. Then they will ask for my passport to verify? What do I do with the telex approval letter? Show the immigration officer upon re-entry to Soekarna-Hatta? Does the immigration officer keep the telex or should I make a copy before flying back to JKT?

            Now that I have my VITAS approved I read from this weblink I have 7 days to apply for KITAS upon re-entry. Is this link current information:



            After KITAS, should I get KITAP?

            I plan to work here and drive both a car and a motorbike. How do I get a license for both?

            Thanks,

            William

              This particular agent said that spouse KITAS + employer IMTA is "much" cheaper than employer KITAS+IMTA. Correct?

                  (1) You pick up the "telex" at Jakarta´s Immigration (Directorate General) . At the Embassy you pick up the VITAS (Visa for a KITAS) .

                  (2) Besides other documents , you give to the Embassy a copy of the "telex" (which is a "pre-approval" of the VITAS) .

                  (3) Your passport is one of the required documents to get the VITAS .

                  (4) I heard that your city´s Kantor Imigrasi will also require a copy of the "telex" when you request the "conversion" of the VITAS into a KITAS .

                  (5) I guess it changed to 30 days . Anyway , at the Jakarta´s airport the officer will stamp a stay permit with the number of days allowed (I guess) .

                  (6) You are eligible for a KITAP after 2 years of marriage . So after these 2 years you can convert the KITAS into a KITAP anytime you want , except if the KITAS has less than 30 days of remaining validity .

                  (7) I don´t know . See the links below :

                    I have read through the whole thread and will be converting my SosBud to a ITAS, this is my progress so far.

                    Yesterday my wife and I arrived at KanIm Tanjung Perak and although we were to late to hand in our documents, I was pleased to see how helpful the staff are.

                    The immigration officer said no problem about converting to ITAS but told us we would have to come back earlier next time. However what impressed me was he still made the effort to go through all my documents and make sure everything was ok. He pointed out a couple of improvements to the sponsor letter which I will be making today, and also told us which forms we needed and gave us a nice folder. There were 5 forms which I will list in case anyone wants to know the numbers and names:

                    23 - Fomulir Perpanjangan Atau Konversi Izin Kunjungan
                    24 - Formulir Izin Tingal Terbatas Dan Tetap
                    25 - Formulir Izin Masuk Kembali Dan Pemulangan
                    26 - Formulir Pendaftaran Orang Asing
                    27 - Formulir Perubahan Data Orang Asing

                    Does this sound right? I realise the process gradually changes over time.
                    I noticed that form 25 is included for the MERP, sounds like we get to apply for this at the same time which would make things a little easier.
                    I would also like to add that in the forms there is no mention of my wifes job or income, and no bank statement is asked for. I filled the part for my job in UK as simply swasta but left the office address blank as I am not employed.

                    We will be going back to KanIm tomorrow to hand in everything but so far the process seems straightforward. Once again would like to thank everyone for all this information on documents etc. It has made everything so much easier.
                    I will update on my process as it goes on.
                    Following on from this post in October, I can now say that I have my KITAS. Was a pretty straightforward process apart from a couple of things which came up at KanWil and DitJen, causing the longer than usual process time.

                    My process:

                    13/10/14 - Went to KanIm Tanjung Perak with my Indonesian wife and picked up the 5 forms listed in my above quote (also brought all the required documents with me - although arriving too late in day to apply, an officer went through all my documents to make sure I had everything I needed).

                    15/10/14 - Went back to KanIm with wife and made the application with the completed 5 forms and the following documents:


                    • Sponsor letter from my wife with Materai stamp
                    • My passport and departure card (original and copies of both sides of departure card/main page, SOSBUD and arrival stamp from passport)
                    • Copy of my wife's KTP (also showed the officer the original)
                    • Copies of all pages of our Buku Nikah (again showed officer originals of both husband and wife books)
                    • Document from KUA confirming that we were still married, stamped and signed [SIZE=1](I have noticed some posters stating they went to their embassy instead to get this document, and paid quite a large amount of money - not only far cheaper from KUA (in fact KUA did not charge us anything for this document), but as a British citizen my embassy does not allow us to even register our marriage there, so would not be possible to get a letter from them saying we are still married.[/SIZE]
                    • Copy of Certificate of No Impediment
                    • Surat Keterangan Domisili of my wife, from our [COLOR=#333333]Kecamatan[/COLOR]
                    • Copy of wife's Kartu Keluaga
                    • Copy of my birth certificate
                    • Surat Pernyataan Dan Jaminan - given to us at KanIm to fill in, with Materai stamp


                    All the above documents were taken by KanIm and we were given a receipt and told to come back in one week.

                    22/10/2014 - Returned to KanIm, short wait of 10 minutes, then officer called us up and told us to make copies of everything together with a letter for KanWil. We were then given a package to deliver to KanWil. We went straight to KanWil and handed them the package, told to sit down and wait. After 25 minutes we were told that they need one more document. Now this one caught me by surprise, they asked for a document to show I was a muslim when I was married? I had never heard of this before, and was completely shocked and confused - after all, my Buku Nikah confimed that I was muslim and there was never any other document to say what my religion was. I even tried uttering the Shahada to the staff in KanWil but they insisted that I give them a document certifying it.

                    07/11/2014 - We returned to KanWil with their requested document (Luckily our KUA had been very helpful sorting that out and were as bemused as we were that we were being asked for a document like this), and given a letter that we were told we needed to photocopy. Asked where we could photocopy, and walked the two big buildings away while dodging heavy traffic as there was nowhere to walk safely. The photocopier was broken.... Went back to KanWil and explained. The officer said no problem he will do it there...
                    By this point I was quite amused by the process so far/sadly my wife was quite angry. We were then given a package to send to DitJen Jakarta - which after making copies for ourselves of all documents, sent via JNE the next day (with a note inside with both our mobile numbers asking for a call when it was ready). Regularly checked tracking on the internet, package arrived at DitJen on 10/11/14.

                    17/11/2014 - Began calling Ditjen extensions 2521 and 2519 repeatedly several times every day. No answer, just irritating ice cream music on hold. My phone credit and sanity gradually fading away.

                    25/11/2014
                    - Flew to Jakarta with my wife to find out what was going on. We were [COLOR=#333333]told that we need a house visit document from imigrasi before they will issue approval - other than that all the other documents are ok. Flew back home that day - feeling a little bit frustrated that all it would have taken was a quick phone call from them to tell us (or answering the phone) - instead it took two return flights and taxi journeys in Jakarta's nice relaxing traffic. (Actually it wasn't all bad, we visited Pacific Place where we had lunch in Hard Rock cafe and I bought myself a nice acoustic guitar from the Yamaha shop. [/COLOR])[COLOR=#333333]


                    26/11/2014
                    - Went back to KanIm and told them the news. They apologised and were surprised as they thought the home visit was only needed for KITAP. We were told they would call when they would be visiting, which would be as soon as possible. I also asked about extending my sosbud as it would expire soon, but was told I don't need to as I am in a process.

                    07/1/2015 - Returned to KanIm after waiting patiently for the phone call which never came. Officer very apologetic and explained that they were very busy as they were now having to do house visits for KITAS which were not required before, and things were becoming stricter. All understandable by me. We were told that the visit would come soon - and that they needed to take photos of us together at the house.

                    20/1/2015 - Flew to Jakarta on my own to deliver the new document/photos (chose to fly so I could speak to the staff in person and make sure everything was ok this time). All good, my application was now complete, and told to return on friday afternoon to collect the approval letter. Returned home.

                    23/1/2015 - Flew back to Jakarta alone again and sure enough, my letter was ready! Returned back home with 3 envelopes and a smile.

                    27/1/2015 - Me and the wife went to KanWil first to deliver their letter, all fine and nothing else needed from them - they just took the letter. Went to KanIm and gave them the letter - they checked it all and told us to pay at the cashier at the back of the building. After paying (800,000 for KITAS, 1,000,000 for MERP and 55,000 for biometrics), I had my photo taken and every finger scanned. We were told to return in 2 days when my KITAS would be ready.

                    29/1/2015 - Returned to the KanIm and picked up my passport with MERP stamp and paper KITAS, which was backdated to the end of November when my sosbud expired.

                    So another successful sosbud to Kitas conversion. The long wait did not bother me at all - it was an interesting experience, it was just the lack of communication which was a little bit frustrating. All staff in 3 departments are very friendly though.
                    Now I am preparing to get my SKD and SKTT sometime this coming week. After that will be looking forward to the KITAP process in April.[/COLOR]

                      I had a home visit for my first Kitas in 2013, in Bandung. I don't think it's that new of a requirement.

                        I think they started in July or August 2012. It's around that time that DitJenIm issued a surat ederan to generalize it, in accordance with the 2011 Immigration Act.

                          [COLOR=#333333](5) I guess it changed to 30 days . Anyway , at the Jakarta´s airport the officer will stamp a stay permit with the number of days allowed (I guess) .

                          30 days, got that.

                          A question on number (5).

                          Since I will pay $55 USD = 697,000 IDR for the 6 mo VITAS from the Indonesian Embassy in Singapore, will I still need to pay the $35 USD = 450,000 IDR VOA stamp when I arrive back to JKT? Or does the VITAS cover that cost now? [/COLOR]

                            Since I will pay $55 USD = 697,000 IDR for the 6 mo VITAS from the Indonesian Embassy in Singapore, will I still need to pay the $35 USD = 450,000 IDR VOA stamp when I arrive back to JKT? Or does the VITAS cover that cost now? [/COLOR]
                            No need for VOA, you will enter on a VITAS. You can also line up in the queue that says "Foreigners with KITAS/KITAP" or something like that, instead of the general tourist line.

                                Since I will pay $55 USD .. for the 6 mo VITAS .., will I still need to pay the $35 USD ..VOA stamp when I arrive back to JKT? Or does the VITAS cover that cost now? [/COLOR]

                                To enter Indonesia you need a Visa . It may be a VITAS (Visa for a KITAS) , a VOA (Visa-On-Arrival) if eligible , or any other Visa .

                                You don't pay the VOA but unfortunately , when you "convert" the VITAS into a KITAS , I think you will need to pay the KITAS too .
