Visa Regulations for Indonesia

Visa Regulations

Have you plan to visit Indonesia? Plans are forming, itineraries are being finalized and the mind is drifting to the many adventures that lie ahead. Before you pack all you need to travel, there’s one more thing to be taken care of: your Visa please!

All travelers to Indonesia must obtain a Visa from one of the Indonesian diplomatic missions unless they come from one of the visa exempt countries. They must be in possession of a Pasport that is valid for at least six (6) months from the date of arrival, and have proof (tickets) of onward or return passage.

Through this article, let you know all the relevant information related to tourist visas in Indonesia, so you can enter the country knowing exactly what is required.

Free Visa entry & VOA – Visa on Arrival:

Depending on your passport and where you are from, there are three options to enter Indonesia that apply to most travellers who come for tourist or social purposes:

  1. No Visa required (majority of countries – FREE entry, 30 days valid, NOT extendable)
  2. Visa on Arrival (35US$, 30 valid for 30 days, extendable (30 more days)
  3. Visa needed (apply abroad before arriving in Indonesia)

To get your Visa On Arrival, here’s the details of everything you’ll need:

Passport

All visitors to Indonesia must have a passport that is valid for a minimum of six months onwards from the date of arrival.

Outbound Ticket

You will also need to prove to immigration that you do not intend to stay longer than your tourist visa allows. To do this, you just need a return ticket to your home country, or an outbound ticket for your next destination after Indonesia.

Free Tourist Visa

By Presidential Decree of No. 21 of 2016 dated on March 2016, tourists from 169 countries worldwide have been granted the Visa Free (or free Visa On Arrival / VOA). The visa is valid for 30 days and can be used for tourism, family visit, social visit, art and cultural, government duty, to deliver a speech or attend a seminar, international exhibitions, meetings with head office or representatives office in Indonesia, or transit. It is non-extendable. If you are from one of the 169 countries eligible for a free VOA, you can collect your visa when you arrive at one of Indonesia’s many inbound ports or borders.

Passengers from cruise ships arriving at Benoa in Bali should be aware that the immigration office at the harbour does not currently have a visa free facility. This means you still will need to apply for a Visa on Arrival.
