But, the process to obtain this immigration document will take about 60 to 90 days, because student should get a study permit (from the Ministry of Research, Technology & Higher Education in Indonesia) and telex visa (from the Directorate General of Immigration-Jakarta) before applying for student visa at the Indonesian Embassy in your home country or residences.
These immigration process of obtaining study permit and telex visa can be complicated, but the university can assist to recommend an agent to process your immigration documents with student’s expenses.
