is it allowed to forgein search fo new indonesian person to be his new sponsor instead of wife, after legal divorce, or his kid can be his sponsor ?

Foreigner can have a new sponsor, visa will not be anymore kitap,child cannot sponsor his father.

If you need help pm me.


could you please explain thet “ visa will not be kitap anymore “? 
thank you

Do you mean he will be overstay after that  ??
he must apply for new social visa or with old visa convert to other sponser and what is the procedures for do that ?

Visa available for foreigner after kitap (if cancelled)


If you break up before 5 years of marriage you must cancel the KITAS or KITAP but there's nothing stopping remarriage and a new sponsor.

May i ask Fred ,
is that mean the kitap cancelled automatically by the divorce certificate or till the expire date ?
or there is a period of time to leave the country and apply for new visa sponsored by other person or can from inside the state ?
- if the new sponsor is indonesia friend not new spouse or wife is that fine and acceptable?
please i need more explanation guys..

A spouse sponsored KITAS must be surrendered on divorce, that usually meaning leaving the country, but you might be able to get an alternative visa such as a sosbud without doing so.

- if the new sponsor is indonesia friend not new spouse or wife is that fine and acceptable?

Can,visa is b211,60days and extendable every month (4x)

If your 55 years old can process 319 visa.
