In Reply to: How do I get a KITA in Bali. What are the options! posted by anomac on July 18, 2006 at 8:14 pm:
unawful (through fraud & corruption) KITAS work permits are available for sale by many people, just look on the Internet (Google) for "bali kitas agent" and I am sure you will find what you are looking for. What they tend to do is use a front company, completely falsify your skills / job description / experience and pay off the visa officer. Be warned though, an unlawfully obtained KITAS is always subject to extortion down the line. Be also aware I understand technically you can not work for any other organization while you are in Indonesia, so you should not work for the companies you say you want to. Have you looked at the Malaysian "second home" visa? As long as you buy a house (not expensive) you can work there for the two overseas companies and be officially exempt from any income tax, plus you can bring in a "maid" under your visa. I know Malaysia is putting you further from Aussie, but if your intention is to reap benefits other than travel distances (and after all KL has good flight connections), you can avoid the possible problems with corruption in Indonesia; it is getting worse and the Balinese police are as bent as they come, probably the most corrupt in the world.
