Which Indonesian visa is the most hassle-free for staying there for 6-12 months? By hassle free I mean reasonably easy to obtain, not too expensive, and ideally without frequent renewals. I will arrive in Bali in April 2015.
The visas that come to mind are:
1 year business visa (but the first stay can only be 60 days, any following stay as long as I want?)
Half-year sosial visa (but I have to renew monthly and cannot leave for a few days without an exit/re-entry permit?)
Tourist visa which I convert into a sosial visa (probably it's cheaper and more hassle-free to do the sosial right away before arrival?)
Which did you try, and which were easiest? Do I need a local invitation, and what is the easiest way to get one without getting into obligations?
Would anyone be so nice and invite me for a business visa? If yes please PM me, we can talk of course before you agree to help me out on this one.
What I want to do in Indonesia (starting in Bali) is surfing, looking into starting an online business, or 'looking into investment opportunities' (if arriving on a business visa).
By the way, I have an EU passport.
