Anyone visited Pontianak on the West coast
of Kalimantan? We were thinking of cruising this way, then via Karimata, Belitu and Bangka and then N into the Lingga chain before departing Indonesia at Batam. Think we have all the procedures nailed down, applied for CAIT and a route
to a visa from the Indonesian embassy in Ottawa. Unfortunately, they will not issue a tourist 60 day visa, even with a CAIT as documentation
for proof of your itinerary leaving no choice but to buy return airline tickets from Sarawak to Pontianak.
It doesn't make sense that you can fly into Pontianak from Malaysia
but that they cannot issue a VOA at this port? Does anyone know otherwise?
Their embassy in Ottawa says no as well.
