VISA Policy of Indonesia
Regardless what country you are from and what visa you will be getting there are a few things every foreign visitor needs before travelling to Indonesia.
The immigration officer at the port of entry may ask the passenger to produce any necessary documents (such as hotel reservation and proof of finance).
Visa Free Short Visit for Multiple Purposes:
These 15 countries and special regions can get a free 30-day non extendable visa through any airport or harbor for the purpose of tourism, business, education, government related tasks, socio – culture, journalism or transit.
Visa Free Short Visit for Tourism Purpose Only:
These 75 countries and special regions can get a free 30-day non extendable visa for the purpose of tourism only, and can only enter and exit Indonesia through certain airports and seaports (see below). For a reason other than tourism purpose, or entering other than defined airports and harbors, they can choose to pay the USD 35 visa on arrival (e.g. business, education, government related tasks, socio – culture, journalism or transit).
Visa on Arrival (VOA):
These are another 4 countries which can get a 30 day visa on arrival at USD 35 per person.
This rate is the same for any passenger of any age. Infants need to pay this visa fee as well. The Indonesia visa on arrival can be extended once by another 30 days. The Indonesia visa fee can be paid in cash or credit card. If you pay with cash you can use US Dollars or any other major currency. You will find a piece of paper at the VOA payment counter with the current price in your currency.
Visa Before Arrival:
Nationals who are not eligible for visa free or VOA need to apply the visa at an Indonesian embassy or consulate.
These 10 countries require an approval from Immigration Office in Indonesia before travelling for Business, Tourist and Social Visits purposes (this policy is called Indonesian Calling Visa).
The recent new law approving of another additional 79 countries for visa free has been officially signed by President Joko Widowo (Jokowi) on 2 March 2016. The new law was then made public by the ministry of justice on 10 March 2016, and may start be applied by end of March. However, we couldn't receive the list of those 79 countries at the moment. Therefore for those countries that are currently not listed for Visa free, please kindly check and confirm the recent visa requirement status to Indonesian embassy or consulate nearby.
