After 4 months and 13 days of living in Indonesia, we, finally, have our KITAS! We just received confirmation from the New Orleans office that they gave Crown Moving authorization to transport our air shipment from its storage unit to a DHL processing site in Ohio. If all goes well, we should have our air shipment before the first week of April.
Our sea shipment, on the other hand, is a different story. It’s still sitting in a customs warehouse somewhere in Papua. We are keeping our fingers crossed, carrying our lucky talismans, wishing on stars, searching for wild four-leaf clovers, and just plain hoping that our sea shipment will be released now that we have been granted temporary living status.
