    According to the rules that Yani stated, I am supposed to give her my passport a week or so before my Sosbud visa renewal is due, so they can process it, etc. That's fine except that I'll be in Raja Ampat diving until one day before the visa runs out. Does anyone KNOW if you can travel...

    Registering a car in my name without a KITAS - possible?

    I'm planning to buy a second-hand car, but I'm living in Bali on a SosBud visa (not a KITAS). Is it possible to register the car in my name without a KITAS? If so, are there any threads in this forum on how to do so? (I did an "advanced search" but didn't find anything.) Many thanks!
