  • Moving to be with my fiance

    I'm Justin from Eagan, MN and I'll be moving to Indonesia to be with my fiance in January 2021. We're planning to get married in March so I guess this is it for me.

      Hello, good luck to you! I hope you can make your plans come true in 2021, we had to cancel the wedding due to the world situation.

        Hello Justin, I am Bill; currently living a bit south of you in Pella, Iowa. We had airline tickets for our annual family visit to Jakarta Timur for the past summer. The trip was, of course, cancelled when Indonesia banned entry of foreign nationals. We are now hoping to get visas for 2021. My wife is planning an early December call to the Chicago Consulate (where we normally purchase visa) to get their recommendations on when applications will likely be successful as well as what additional documentation will be required, such as proof of a vaccination, a recent negative test result, or both or something else.

        Where are you at in the process and what hoops do you expect to have to jump through to get a visa for you January visit?
