to complete retirement visa process
The process for getting retirement visa for both spouses is almost identical to getting an individual retirement visa. You will still need to demonstrate that you have at least 1500 USD of disposable income per month per person.

Also, if you have shared assets, those can be jointly used to prove that you have sufficient funds to stay in Indonesia.
