Luckily with the new President’s
there is hope that maybe
the complicated 1995 Visa Index Law
for temporary work permits
may be cleaned up a bit to avoid
misuse by immigration staff
to extort expatriates and
their sponsors with donations.
Unlike in Singapore,
where the process takes only 2 weeks,
in Indonesia, it has been few words needed
but contribution made to officials to get
the process done in hopefully less than 3 months.
Because of unclear guidelines
on how to obtain most visas in Indonesia;
the employees in most immigration departments,
are available to offer a little bit of additional help
to facilitate visa process for a ‘donation.’
Instead of the process being complicated and restrictive,
it would be beneficial for it to be more selective
in helping the country stop deterring foreign investors
and expatriates to help accelerate economic growth
and help speed up the training of specialized skills,
technology and knowledge to the locals.
