UPDATE: Just did the interview!

Concerning the KITAS, he echoed almost exactly what you said here. He said the Indonesian government has greatly reduced the number of visas they issue, and because the process itself takes months, other schools (he mentioned a couple by name) have the same process of issuing the VKU visa for the first few months and specifying the pay as consultation services (he says the school will provide a document that shows that). He also said the KITAS process itself cannot begin until all my original documents are provided, so there’s no way I can have one before arriving in Indonesia. He seemed to be upfront about the legality of it and said it is the process they use for all of their foreign teachers. There was no mention of a temporary working visa index 457, but I will ask about it.

As far as pay, $1000USD/month for first year teachers.
