Hi, I am opening a bar in Bali in the next months with my Indonesian girlfriend.She will be the one signing contracts and the company will be started under her name, so it would be considered a local business.For the moment we don't need any visa for me as I will not go there yet.We just need all the licenses needed for the restaurant (and the alcohol license).We have the place and the employees, we are doing a franchise so we have everything set up already.How much will be the cost to get all the licenses necessary and which would be the steps?Thanks a lot for your attention.

Your site claims that pensioners can skip the Kitas to apply for a Kitap. Can you show where that is stated by the authorities? https://www.angloinfo.com/how-to/indonesia/bali/moving/residency/kitap-visa

Hi, I would like to open a local bank account so that i can transfer funds easily from Europe. Have been to a few banks but they told me that to open an account you need to have a Kitas. I have heard about some foreigners that have been able to open up a local account without Kitas. Any recommendations of a bank that can help me? Oscar

Hi all, I have heard so many bad stories lately about bad and dishonest visa agents in Bali. Agents that keep your passport all the time so you can't leave if you have an emergency for example outside of Indonesia and also ask you for crazy prices. What i'm talking about is the renewal of a Social visa Monthly after the first 60 days. Can someone recommend a good and honest agent? Thanks. Julia

Hello, I am currently in Bali and have had an experience with an Indonesian woman whom I entered into a relationship with for two months. I naively transferred my money into her bank account from Australia as it was my understanding that I could not open a bank account here. I have since discovered that this is not the case. Long story short, the money was transferred from a dealership in Brisbane after selling my vehicle. The woman I was involved with was apparently of good repute and I spent many times with her and her friends in Seminyak. We had an argument on Saturday night and I have not seen her since and is not giving me my money back leaving me to have to sell off personal possessions to survive here. At no stage did I get the impression that she was someone who could not be trusted and in fact the opposite, but in hind sight, not so the case.Do I have a case for going to the local police? As my situation is now getting desperate. I am selling my iPad today to a friend of hers who apparently has not heard from her either since the weekend. I need the money back. I have requested many times for my money but because we had the argument she claims that it is fair enough she keep the rest of my money.Any advice greatly appreciated.   G in Seminyak
