Hi Justin, there are a bunch of "maybes" related to your questions. I'll go through them separately

  1. Is your wife with you in Jakarta? You can only apply where you are both physically present.
  2. Are you a resident of Jakarta? Some consulates require you to be in their "jurisdiction" and don't assist people on tourist visas. You'll need to confirm with the consulate there.
  3. If you are outside the Philippines, we cannot help, because each consulate has their own process and requirements
  4. If you are in the Philippines, yes, we have people who can help with your 13 a visa application. Let me know.
