    And This Years Award For Outstanding Bureaucracy goes to…….It is that time of year once again when Indonesian law compels me to renew my Kitas (visa). This vital, credit card sized document is actually the only thing that secures my, I have to say, rather idyllic lifestyle on the island of Bali. Without...

    @Paul Walters You make a bureaucratic office a carnival of fun. Love “the quo that lost its status”. Good one Paul!

    Given that a year has passed since I wrote my FIRST post for beBEE I thought it prudent to re run the piece as I have just this minute returned from the dreaded ministry of IMMIGRASI !!!

    I was only supposed to be in Ukraine for 90 days, and then exit the country; and come back in - after the first round of this - the hostilities heated up - and leaving / getting back in, became out of the question. I had heard upon exit that there would be a huge fine. My friend paid close to 5k to get out...... I sat with a Customs Official for an hour before they let me off - and out - scott free. * It helps if you speak the local language. ;) And yes - I hate the Visa process too, but clearly there must be some way to keep the riff and the raff out {Of course what is in the US is pure window dressing on idiocy}

    This buzz resonated so much with me. So much bureaucracy for something that should be more simple. I expect lots of changes maybe in a decade. What is your foresight @Paul Walters?

    Ohh the joys of being an expat. That whole process is worse than China. Is it the same process on Java or unique to paradise central? I have always loved Bali, been going now for 25 odd years. Loving it less now what with Planet Hollywoods, Carrefours and the Starbucks invasion, not to mention the traffic from Ubud to Jimbaran Bay. I here there is a small but budding startup scene developing in Bali, with high speed internet etc. Any perspectives on that? Thanks!
