How soon can I apply for an extension on my Indonesian tourist visa. I initially have a 60 day visa and need to know how soon I can apply for the one month extension?

There is a fairly comprehensive guide on how to do this at the Lash World Tour, which is too long to copy here but the key point is:

You need a sponsor for Tourist and Social Visa extensions

And there is a related question on this site as well:

You have to apply 3 working days before it ends.

It is not a written rule. In fact, as far as I know, it is not a written rule that you can extend a tourist visa (if you ask in 5 different immigration office, you will get 2 to the power of 5 answers)

So I suggest you don't push your luck and do it one week in advance.
