  • Sponsorship Letter for Social VIsa

    Hey everyone

    I'm currently in Penang, Malaysia and planning to soon apply for the 60-day social visa for Indonesia. I am aware that I will need a sponsorship letter and fortunantly my girlfriend will take care of that. She's allready been to the imigration office in Bandung to pick up the paperwork and knows what she needs to do.

    The only thing we're both uncertain of that on the sponsorship letter she needs to give a reason for my stay. I'm uncertain of this as well as this is my first time dealing with Indonesian visas. Does anyone have any experence of applying for a social visa and what did they give as a reason for the stay? Will simply writting "tourisem" cut it or do they need something else like an engagment?
    I want to note as well that my girlfriend and I have only been together for about two months and I have no intention of tieing the knot (if we do) for at least a year or two.

    Any advice on the whole procedure would be much appreciated.

    (1) For the Visa you don't need any paper from Immigration . See the requirements at the Consulate's website (see link below) . Basically you need a USD1'500 financial capability's proof + a sponsor letter + copy of sponsor's KTP + ticket out of Indonesia .
    Note : Theoretically the sponsor is responsible for you financially , so the KTP should state a profession or having a business .

    (2) Reason : to know a future's wife family , or similar . Not "tourism" because for tourism you don't need a sponsor letter and you will get a Visa which you cannot extend .

    (3) I hope you don't leave her in troubles .
