From the day the Visa is issued, you have 90 days to enter into Indonesia. If you arrive later, the Visa won't be valid anymore.

To be honest, we don't know.

At this point we have not heard of any plans to do so. This does not mean, that the Indonesian government is not planning to add more countries. But for now, we cannot predict when and which countries would be added. We understand that the Visa costs are substantial. Bali, more than any other region in Indonesia hopes, that all restrictions will be lifted soon, and we can all freely travel again.

No, this is not possible.

A B211A Visa, that would allow you to stay for 60 days (and can be extended) needs to be applied for OFFSHORE, while you are outside of Indonesia.
