    hi,been a while since I was here,so I would like to ask,has anyone had any success in converting family sponsored ITAS to ITAP at a bali imigration office when their spouse has a Jawa KTP?...It is to hard for us to close up shop in Bali and go to Jember imigrasi..tnxs

    If the trip to Jember doesn't drive you crazy then the service there will!

    I'm picking up some negative vibes here about this lovely city of mine...

    John, I have nothing but good experience with the Kanim Jember. They are sangat prosedural, but as long as you comply you'll get what you need. What was the problem?
    To the OP, when we converted my spousal Kitas to Kitap in 2012, two officers from Kanim Jember came over for coffee and donuts (and to check if I was living at the address I provided on the forms.)

    the train trip is ok from banyuwangi,but,we are living and wife is working in Bali...this is our place of residence according to sktt and her kipem...we cannot afford to lose 2or 3 days 6or 8 times to go to jember...plus getting a new sktt saying I am legally residing in Banyuwangi(when we are not) and transfering our immi file to jember...

    My issues with Jember go back a few years. I wrote at length in another place. Suffice to say arrogant head of section and Kepala kantor even when apprised of the current regulation residing on their own website. An agent I was chatting to challenged me to nominate a worse office to deal with ... and she'd been to quite a few.
