Jakarta resident Minanty Karyani says she was overjoyed upon receiving a limited stay visa for family reunification (VITAS 317) two weeks ago, after being separated from her family for the last seven months.
The seven-month separation was because her husband, a Singaporean, does not possess a stay permit to enter Indonesia while Minanty herself does not hold a long-term visa to reside in Singapore.
“I’m very happy about [the new visa policy] and I’m sure that this will bring joy to other mixed-marriage families,” said Minanty in a video message broadcast during a webinar on Wednesday.
Minanty and many other mixed-marriage families have been able to breathe a sigh of relief as they can now reunite in Indonesia with their family members who were abroad, thanks to a recent change in visa policy.
