30 day ext of visa with sponsor- 2nd stamp JakartaHi there,
I entered Indo on a 2 month tourist visa (from bangkok) and Ive successfully obtained a 30 day ext in Mataram. I now need to get a 2nd ext in Jakarta but am struggling to find a visa agent.
If I try to go to Immigration in Jakarta I think its going to be a struggle as its apparently a huge place. Has anyone done this themselves before in Jakarta - how did you find a sponsor?
I emailed a visa agent in Bali who advised ''Hand-over from a previous sponsorship to a new sponsorship along a copy ID-card of previous sponsorship.'' Is a copy of the previous sponsors id card necessary?
The bali agent also said that it could take up to 14 days which is a joke considering it took 1 day in Mataram.
Any advice is appreciated

4Since posting this thread, Ive been in contact with a visa agent in jakarta who says they will charge me 1.250,000 to do an ext a 2nd time.
Also, they said: ''And since you will reach 90 days continuously staying in Indonesia, then we have to report your "alien registration" at the Immigration office -- cost and services for this is Rp. 500,000,-
Ive never heard of this registration thing and wonder if the agent knows the rules or not - or just after more money?
Has anyone else heard of this registration?

6I think the JKT agent is cheating you, ASFAIK, the registration is only necessary for a 3rd (and 4th) extension, not a 2nd one! Or at least that had been the case till earlier this year when I myself got a 2nd extension. And the fee he is charging is a "bit" too steep, too. Try doing it yourself - people have in the past posted here about doing it in JKT quite easily and quickly.

7I agree that the fee sounds a bit high, but then again this is the “big city” and the costs of a visa agent can be expected to be higher than in other areas of Indonesia.
The problem the OP has with doing the additional extension himself is finding a sponsor for his extensions…a role which the visa agent will take. Moreover, this additional extension will involve a change in sponsorship which can raise questions, unless the visa agent is the new sponsor.
There are so many visa agents in Jakarta…so just call more of them until you find one which seems reasonable to you…or take the other advice and fly to Singapore to either get another 60 day visa, or just return with a 30 day VOA, keeping in mind that it is extendable here for another 30 days.
"Try doing it yourself - people have in the past posted here about doing it in JKT quite easily and quickly."
Not really. Those posts were all about extending a 30 day VOA, which is far easier to do on your own, not an additional extension on a 60 day visa.
Personally, I would not attempt this additional extension on your 211 visa in Jakarta without an agent.

8Well, the first hit I got by searching for "visa extension in Jakarta" is about extending a 60 days visa there in a mere 2 hours:
It's not exactly recent, but in my personal experience, extensions have only been getting easier to process over the past years (though Bali may be an exception).

9Any posts about visas which are 5+ years old are hardly worth reading these days as whatever information is there is most certainly well out of date and no longer applicable. But on that same string you cited was a more recent post from March 2011 which tells (on the linked blog) of arriving at 10AM and departing at 4PM to extend a VOA, not a 211 visa, nor a second extension which also involves a change of sponsor.
