Visa On Arrival for Dutch
On May 23rd, 2006, the Indonesian authorities confirmed that Dutch passport holders will be granted a so-called visa-on-arrival (VOA) upon their arrival in Indonesia. The passport should be valid for a minimum period of six months after the date of entry into Indonesia.
The VOA is valid for a minimum period of seven days and a maximum period of thirty days. The costs involved are USD 10 for a seven-day and USD 25 for a thirty-day visa. The visa can not be exchanged for another legal residency and can not be extended. For a stay of more than thirty days you should request your visa at the Indonesian embassy in The Hague or in your country of residence as before.
We would like to draw your attention to the fact that despite the VOA-facility for Dutch passport holders, it can never be ruled out that upon arrival the Indonesian immigration service decides not to grant a VOA after all. There is no right of entry. This is the same situation as in the Netherlands.
Journalist, researchers and tourists travelling to Irian Jaya, the Moluccas and/or Aceh are advised to apply for a visa at the Indonesian embassy in The Hague before their departure even after the VOA facility has been granted.
