Forum Software Migration (2nd Update)

As you may have noticed, the forum software has undergone a bit of a facelift. We've migrated from vBulletin4 to vBulletin5.2.2. As with all software major updates, there will undoubtedly be a few hiccups. As with all software upgrades, vBulletin has made changes in how their software works, so there may be a bit of a learning curve as you re-orient yourself to their changed environment.

We have worked through the initial hiccups that were reported. If you experience additional issues, please pm them to wm and we'll work through them. Thanks for your patience!

Regards,
paman and wm

    I don't know , but you can ask your local Telkom (for the phone number) , or ask your Indonesian neighbors where "Kantor Imigrasi" is (which they use to get Indonesian passport) . It is also important to know that you must apply at the city which issued the KTP (ID card) of your sponsor .

      Jember - you have no other option if your sponsor KTP is Banyuwangi. For my experiences of KITAS at Jember see:

          Read the threads brodee - get all necessary documents together incl cert of residency from local RT/RW/lurah and go to Jember for the first steps. For SosBud to KITAS, when Jember is satisfied they will issue their surats for Kantor Wilayah which is SURABAYA! How easy it is to avoid personally doing the KanWil and Jakarta steps I'll leave to others to advise. We chose to do these steps in person but there are indicatons from others that this may not now be necessary.

          We didn't extend SosBud so can't give you advice on this. Read the thread "Mohon ma'af dari Imigrasi" so you know not to fall for the "you have to extend SosBud four times first" line.

          Good luck - and give my regards to Pak Pras at Jember!

              Democracy has changed a few things. Laws are available and (sometimes) taken seriously.

                  If you speak enough of bahasa indonesia, I am sure that you will succeed. In 12 years, I became a master to navigate in between basa basi and very direct way of speaking "western style".

                    Heh, my Indonesian seem fluent (though I still misunderstand meanings and people still misunderstand my meanings), but all I've become a master of is pissing people off with being direct and saving us all some time.

                        i think even Indonesians themselves are always asking each other what they are talking about..'maksudnya'...
