Hi all

I'm a mid 40s Singaporean staying in the city of LubukLinggau, Palembang, on a spouse sponsored KITAS.

Got it in Jan 2019, but only settled down here in March. And, thanks to this site, I found out about having to report to the relevant offices for

. Surat Domisili
. Surat Tanda Melaporkan
. Surat Keterangan Tempat Tinggal

Can't imagine how much in "unofficial" I'll have to pay at time of KITAS extension if I had not done the above. So far, had done the first 2 documents and, fortunately, have not been queried on why I took so long to get it done. Was at Capil today, and the officer there is having a hard time trying is what was required cos it's rare they have foreigners in this city. LOL.

Hope I don't get any unforeseen inside when I'm back there tomorrow to submit the forms.

By the way, is the SKTT a "certificate" or card like the KTP?

Thanks for reading.

Welcome to the forum. How did you meet your presumed Indonesian spouse? Did you get married in Singapore with the intent of relocating to Palembang? Hope its not considered rude to ask a few questions; just helps to get to know how members came to be expats in Indonesia. We, me and my Indonesian spouse, are in the Midwestern USA for the time being, but plan to move back to Indonesia (DKI) once our offspring finishes high school.

Hi, and welcome to the forum! Glad this site was helpful for your KITAS process.

The SKTT, last time I had one, was an printed on an ID card sized green paper, that you can laminate. It was of hilariously bad quality.

Previously I think it was just printed on regular letter sized paper.

Thanks for the reply.

After almost 2 months of waiting, finally collected the card (yes, green paper actually) from Capil.

She was working in Matahari, which is near to the rental room I was staying at. I was transiting regularly between Batam and Singapore, almost on a weekly basis, hence renting a room there makes sense to me. The marriage began as part of my retirement plan, I'm mid 40s. I was looking to make Batam home as It's near to Singapore. Getting married and applying for KITAS save me the need of doing a Visa run every month.

We registered the marriage with KUA in Palembang and held the reception in LubukLinggau where her granny is. She was brought up by her granny to mid-teen. But, after the lease of our current home expire, we'll be relocating to Batam, where we intending to spend the rest of our time together.
