Hi there everyone, my name's James but for now I'm going by Flight. Anyways, I moved to Bandung Indonesia from the US back in 2010 to work with a friend and her business. Long story short it's not going so well for me here and I'm rapidly running out of options.

I would love to stay in the country; I love being here, but it seems like everything works against bules (or any foreigners) here in terms of residence. The gov. is very strict about this...

I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where I might turn to for help of staying here. I obviously have no employment and I've only learned just a handful of Indonesian words, on top of this I'm quickly running low on what money I have left.

So if I don't find any real options soon I'll have to use what $$ I have left and return to America... I guess this is my last search for advice. frown

Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated.
~James

Not much to go at.
The only thing I can suggest is trying for a job in some school or another that will legally sponsor you for a work permit and so on.
EF are always looking for people.
Salary isn't great but it's one up on nothing.

Well thanks for the advice, fred. I'm not sure of what you mean by 'EF'; what is that exactly?

A private language school called, "English first".
Loads of branches and always looking for teachers but the pay is bottom end.

Alright, thanks for the info. Unfortunately I don't think I have enough time to make this happen as I must leave in early April... I do appreciate your suggestions but unfortunately I've run out of time. frown Unless a miracle happens before April then that's it.

Shouldn't be a problem to sort that before April.
Give it a try.
You have nothing to lose but an email and a couple of phone calls.
