Maybe I should've introduced myself in the introduction section, but I really only have one question.
I'm Thomas and I have a girlfriend in Indonesia who I'm planning to go see in the coming months, but I read somewhere online that when I reach Indonesia I have to show the customs people at the airport that I have 1000 dollars before they'll agree to give me the visa-on-arrival that I need to enter the country. I guess it's to prove that I wont run out of money and get stuck there or something, but my girlfriend says it's not true and that all I need is a roundtrip ticket plus whatever money I need for food, bus/taxi money, and a hotel/hostel/whatever etc.
Can anybody here who has gone to Indonesia clear up for me this issue and question that I have? I don't have a whole lot of money so it's extremely important for me to find out what's true or not true about this.......
Thanks and I hope you guys enjoy your week and weekend etc.
Seriously...what regs say is one thing...whatever they say. What really counts is common sense. I NEVER want to go any new destination without a couple of thousand in cash....(discreetly divided and stashed) and ready access to more via ATM. If you cannot do at least that, you are not ready to take on a financial venture that an overseas GF entails. If you want to bring her to the USA...you have to show adequate income. I would not want to be ANYWHERE out of my usual zones with only a few hundred dollars. Its plain foolish. I'm not trying to be mean....its just reality.
