Hi all, I’ve delayed in getting my b211 visa and now the fees has gone up. So I’m looking for the best way to get our vitas/kitas/kitap.

1. The plan is for us to stay visit Indonesia for 6 months, starting in august 2022.
2. There are 4 of us that would like to get kitas/kitap under the ex-wni category.

So in terms of cost and/or efficiency, what would be the best way to do this? As of now, as far as I know, according to the email from immigration, vitas application is not yet open for foreigners abroad. So the only path to do this as I see it is still:
B211a ->vitas application as soon as we arrive-> kitas ->kitap.

Any advice? Thanks!

What passports do you have, and what is your reason for coming? Tourism?

But you will leave after 6 months or you want to stay forever? Your OP isn't totally clear?
You are ex WNI ?

Why don't you just renew the B211 2 times, you don't even need to leave.
Or ask at your local US consulate if you can get the 6 months version

Indeed, @snpark is right, if you only plan to stay for 6 months, it's much simpler to come with a visit visa B211. It's also cheaper, especially for 4 people.

Visa B211 cannot be renewed anymore. You can use it for just 60 days, and after that take another one B211 onshore, and that one is valid for 60 days.

I came on a b211b, then the original agency that I went through charged 1,5million for the letter saying they don't want to be my sponsor anymore. then been trying to convert to a kitas since early April.

It's a pain in the ass waiting. This past week the ditjen has had their phone off for the izin tinggal customer service
