    PerMen no.24 Tahun 2016 already requires proof of US$1'500 for getting any Visa (except the Retirement Visa which is US$18'000 or US$1'500 per month and Visa-on-arrival which is zero ?) .

    I would prefer increasing this value of US$1'500 to be proportional to the Visa's time length , a value similar to the one year Retirement Visa's US$18'000 or US$1'500 per month (except for the : Work Visa , Investor Visa , Research Visa , Work Holiday Visa , ..) , but cancelling this money requirement for the Sponsor .
