Depending on your country of citizenship and the length of your planned stay, you may apply for a visa-free visit, visa-on-arrival, or several types of visas issued in advance at Indonesian missions abroad.
- Citizens of countries neither on the visa-free list nor on the visa-on-arrival list are required to apply for a visa overseas before travelling to Indonesia.
- For a stay of more than 30 days, nationals of ALL countries must apply in advance for the appropriate visa (tourist, business, social-cultural, etc.) at an overseas Indonesian Consulate or Foreign Mission before departing for Indonesia.
- In calculating your stay period, both day of entry and day of departure will be counted as full days by the Immigration Department.
- On entering Indonesia, your passport must be valid for at least 6 months.
- You may be required to show an outbound ticket and/or prove that you have sufficient funds for your stay (e.g. by showing a credit card or travellers’ checks).
- Those who enter Indonesia with a visa-on-arrival may now extend their visa by an additional 30 days by taking their passport, the fee (perhaps around Rp350,000), and their outbound ticket to any Immigration Office (‘Kantor Imigrasi’). Only one extension per entry is allowed. Allow at least a week for processing. Note also that immigration officials may try to verify your address with a visit (“Survei di Lapangan”).
