Indonesian Visa

In the last decade, Indonesian Goiverment has made a great leap on visa regulation by applying visas regulation that is able to better accommodate the non-citizen who want to visit Indonesia. Basicly. the visa regulation of Indonesia can be divided into three categories; first, no visa required for short stay (not more than 30 days); second, visa on arrival and the last aplication of visa prior to the departure.

The “no visa required” policy” is aplicable for citizen of following countries:  Brunei, Chile, Hong Kong, Macao, Malaysia, Morocco, Peru, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. This policy only valid for a short visit, which is not more than 30 days.

Visa on Arrival policy is a short stay visa that can be obtained direcly at the certain airports and seaports in Indonesia by the citizen of 64 countries and one region regardless of the purpose of the visits providing the applicant has passport with exppiration date must be at least 6 (six) months from the date of entry into Indonesia and round-trip airplane ticket. The Visa on Arrival is neither a work visa nor a visitation visa. Therefore, it can not be converted to obtain other immigration permits. Visa on arrival maximum stay is 30 days and can be extended for another 30 days with prior notice. The Visa on Arrival fee for up to thirty days is US$25 and another US$25 for 30-day extension. Overstay visitors incur to pay a penalty of US$20.- per day/person for under 60 days stay whilst over 60 days stay will be a 5 (five) year prison sentence or a fine of IDR25.000.000 (local currency).

The visa apllication prior to the departure is needed for single entry visas (60) days, Multiple Entry Business Visas, Social Cultural Visit Visas and Temporary Stay Visas. The information regarding the requirements for apllying these types of visas can be obtained at  Embassy or Consulate of the Republic of Indonesia since there is no set list of documents which should be provided as the requirements vary from application to application,depending on the purpose of your visit.

I tis also important to take a note that the maximum stay for visitors in Indonesia  is normally 60 days, except for the Visa on Arrival which has a maximum stay of 30 days and also certain type of visas given based on approval from the Immigration Authority in Indonesia. There are four restricted regions in Indonesia: Aceh, Maluku, Poso, and Irian Jaya/West Papua. Applicants seeking to visit these restricted regions must obtain special authorization from Indonesian authorities.
