I hope this is correct and quickly filters down to our Consulate in Chicago. We may be able to get family based visas.

This is now live as of today, April 5th 2021.

Visa on Arrival and Visa-Free entries are still NOT available, but other visas previously available are now once again available. (VK-SosBud, VITAS, APEC etc.)

Visa application can be made via http://visa-online.imigrasi.go.id

If abroad: An electronic visa will be e-mailed to you and your sponsor upon approval, and you can travel directly to Indonesia. No need to visit an Indonesian embassy abroad.

If already in Indonesia: An electronic visa will be e-mailed to you and your sponsor. You then report to your local immigration office. No need to leave and re-enter Indonesia.

According to the dashboard at https://visa-online.imigrasi.go.id, the daily application quota as of today is 2000 Visa Kunjungan (SosBud), and 500 VITAS.

According to staff of KJRI - Houston, contacted today, no new visa application is possible for WNA outside of Indonesia at this time: no VOA, no Sos-Bud, no vITAS, etc. Not possible for WNA to enter unless they already possess a valid -itas / -itap or meet the other exceptions (diplomatic corps, airline employees, etc). Am I / are they wrong, or this thread just hasn't been updated?

Mrs. Asam Manis had hoped to "mudik" from the States this year. She has not visited her family for almost two and a half years. With the mudik ban in place, she would have to wait until after Idul Fitri to go by herself, or keep waiting until it is possible for both of us to come in together.

My understanding as well. The Chicago Consulate told us that the authority to issue visas has been centralized with electronic application only through the head Immigration operation in Jakarta. Beyond diplomats, aid workers and perhaps in a few other instances, foriegners are SOL. Things are not likely to change any time soon. I just hope Indonesia does not follow India's example.
