Getting my Social-cultural visa for Indonesia

Getting my Social-cultural visa for Indonesia

Sometimes getting a visa can prove to be a mission, especially if you’re not in your home country. I remember having to go through a similar thing for my Philippines visa in Athens.

Pushkar – What to love about this holy city
