    SB visa is valid for 2 months and can be extended 4 time at 1 month each. After this you MUST leave the country and re apply.

    I cannot help you with a sponsor.

    The best way is to contact a visa consultant such as Bali IDE (see the link at the top of the page).

    You will have to pay extra for the service but you won't have to deal with any of the hassles of applying for and renewing the visa.

    Also Manu, you can't work or conduct a business on a social visa. And they do check on you.

    But if you want to go to Bali for a few months to check things out, not working or conducting business, then the social visa would be one to try for.

    Strange, they should reply....

    You have to apply for a Social Visa outside of Indonesia, at an Indonesian embassy / consulate.

    Once you have got it, it is valid for 2 months after you arrive in Indonesia. Then, you can renew it monthly (IN Indonesia) for a total period of up to 6 months.
    That's It !!

    you have to apply outside of Indonesia for 2 months, but can extend up to 4 times. All in all 6 months.

    Some more info/process and costs here:

    http://www.nomad4ever.com/2006/12/15/vi ... s-it-work/

    So far I applied in Singapore 3 times for Sosial Budaya (although I extended only once for the full 6 months here in Bali). No problem with immigration, apart from the hassles/bureaucracy of extending.

    You can either save your time (by asking an agent) or your money (by extending yourself with immigration).

    After 3rd extension you usually will be finger-printed. :)
