Even without the complications of the pandemic, the rules for getting a visa for Indonesia have always been ever-changing and confusing. But it's a welcome sign that things are returning to normal fact that we’re asking the same old questions again: Do I need a visa for Indonesia? Is it free? Can I get a visa on arrival, and if so where? How long does it last? Can I get an extension?­­

For many tourists, travel to Indonesia means one thing ­– a holiday in Bali , the Island of the Gods and one of Southeast Asia’s best-loved tropical islands. Around 6.2 million tourists visited Bali in 2019, but this dropped to just 45 in 2021. Now, after some tough years for somewhere that relies so intrinsically on tourism, Bali is back open for business, and with it the rest of the archipelago.

There is, however, a bit more red tape to navigate than usual. Here's what you need to know about getting a visa for Indonesia.

Getting a visa on arrival in Bali

If you want to travel to Indonesia right now, Bali is by far the easiest place to visit. Not only can you get a 30-day Visa on Arrival (VOA), but quarantine regulations have been eased so you can pretty much get straight on with relaxing from the get-go. This is currently the only place in Indonesia where you can get a visa when you arrive.

The Visa on Arrival scheme is currently limited to 23 countries , including the UK, most Western European nations, many Middle Eastern countries, the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea and most Southeast Asia nations. However, there are plans to expand it to other nationalities, and to offer visas on arrival at other points of entry into Indonesia.

Visas for Bali are issued on arrival at Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar , for a fee of IDR500,000 (US$35), which you'll need to pay before you start queuing at the immigration counter. The entry permit can later be extended for 30 days, giving a total stay of 60 days.

You'll need to show proof of a return ticket (or an onward ticket from Bali to another destination), and you need six months of validity remaining in your passport – it's worth double-checking the expiry date in your passport, given how long travel has been off the cards.

Covid-19 rules for travel to Bali

There are also a few Covid regulations to follow if you're traveling to Bali. You need to be fully vaccinated to avoid quarantine; if you're only partially vaccinated, you’ll need to quarantine for six days. You also need proof of a negative PCR test from the country you’ve flown in from, along with travel insurance that covers Covid-related expenses.

On arrival, you must take a PCR test at the airport, before you’re whisked off to a pre-booked government-certified hotel. You’ll need to hang out in your room until you get your result (which hopefully will be the same day or the next day), but as soon as you’ve tested negative you’re free to hit the beach or trek up that volcano!

But before you get too excited, a second PCR test is required on the third day of your stay. You’ll be free to come and go as you please by day during that period, but you are required to stay at the same approved hotel for the first three nights. So long as you get a second negative result, you can check out and stay wherever you want to on Bali or across Indonesia.

This may sound a little convoluted, but it's part of a pilot program launched in March 2022. If all goes smoothly, the plan is for quarantine to be scrapped altogether.

Traveling to other parts of Indonesia

What about the rest of Indonesia? Java , Sumatra , Lombok …and all the other great places to visit in this beautiful country? Technically, Indonesia has been open for international travel since January 2022, but to visit, you'll need to obtain a B211A Tourism Visa. This is currently the only option beyond the visas being offered on arrival in Bali.

The B211A Tourism Visa must be arranged before you travel through an authorized Indonesian travel agent, who will act as a sponsor for your application. The fee is quite expensive – expect to pay US$150 to US$250 depending on the agency – but visas are valid for 60 days, and you can extend your stay for as long as six months through the same agency that arranged the visa. Even if you are eligible for a visa on arrival in Bali, if you’re planning on traveling long-term in Indonesia, you’ll need a B211A Tourism Visa.

For the application process, you need to supply a scanned copy of your passport ID pages and proof of at least one vaccination dose and travel insurance with coverage for Covid-related emergencies. Your passport should be valid for a year beyond the date of arrival if you're hoping to stay for the full six months.

Applications are filed using the immigration department's online e-visa portal – once you have your e-visa, you'll have to follow the same schedule of PCR tests and stays at government-certified hotels as for tourists arriving in Bali, before you can travel freely around the country.

Visas for travel beyond Bali are likely to be reintroduced soon

If all that sounds like a lot of hard work, just sit tight, as further changes to entry rules are in the pipeline. The Visa on Arrival scheme is expected to be rolled out for more points of arrival beyond Bali in the coming weeks, with more nationalities expected to be added to the approved list, and quarantine requirements are likely to be simplified. For the latest info, check the Media Room link on the website of Indonesia's immigration department . 

In the meantime, if you're planning to travel around Indonesia, weigh up the price difference between flying direct to your favored destination and obtaining a B211A Tourism Visa versus flying into Bali to obtain a visa on arrival then taking a domestic flight or boat to reach other parts of the country.

If you’re lucky enough to be traveling to Indonesia for work, you'll need a business visa (actually a sub-class of the B211A visa), which must be arranged through an authorized agency or through your company. See the official immigration department website for the latest information.

Applying for Indonesian Visa is Faster and Easier with e-Visa

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 transmission, the Indonesian government is continuously leveraging innovative responses such as the introduction of digital public services. The Indonesian Ministry of Law and Human Rights has launched an electronic visa (e-Visa) application system aimed to provide ease of access, especially during the pandemic.

The e-Visa application system will also facilitate future foreign tourists who wish to visit Indonesia after the pandemic, making a positive impact on the development of tourism and creative economy of Indonesia. In the meantime, safe tourist destinations are being prepared in compliance with health protocols.

With the launch of this service, foreigners no longer need to visit the Republic of Indonesia Representative out of the country or the Immigration Office in the country to get a visa sticker on their passport. To enter Indonesia, they just need to apply for a visa online via this e-Visa application system.

The steps to apply for the Indonesian e-Visa are as follows:

1. Visit

2. Register

- Enter data and upload required documents (individual/ corporation)

- Wait for the email notification which contains the username and password

3. Apply for Visa

- Log in using the username and password

- Select the type of visa you wish to apply for, enter data, and upload required documents

- Make PNBP payments (Make sure the data and documents are correct. If the application is rejected, the payment shall not be refunded)

- If the application is approved, a notification will be sent via email

The application for e-Visa can be submitted from wherever the applicant is. The verification process will be quick, which is 3  (two) - 5 (five) working days, and then the visa will be sent to the applicant. In order to cut bureaucratic procedures, the applicant and the guarantor will not be required to appear in person and the visa will be sent directly via email. Once the foreign citizens (WNA) receive their e-Visa, they can immediately travel to Indonesia. 

The ease of applying for an Indonesian visa will play an important role to facilitate the post-pandemic recovery of tourism and creative economy sectors. With this innovation, the number of tourists visiting Indonesian destinations is expected to grow after the pandemic.

If you wish to stay in Indonesia longer than your e-VOA visa allows, you must apply for an extension of the residence permit at the Immigration Office or now you can also do it online through this link to extend VOA visa online .

Please note that an e-VOA visa is granted only for the purposes of tourism, government visits, business meetings, purchases of goods, or transit. For other types of visas, a specific application is required.

Can I apply for a new eVOA tourist visa online from within Indonesia?

It is not allowed to apply for a new e-VOA visa without leaving Indonesia.

Visit the official Indonesian immigration website for more detailed information on applying for a residence permit and other types of visa (work visa, student visa, etc.).

Do I need to get a VOA tourist visa online for Indonesia if I do not leave the international transit area of the airport?

No. You do not need to obtain a visa if you are not leaving the international transit area.

Online Customs Declaration to enter Indonesia

For those tourists who are going to travel to Indonesia, I would suggest the following to expedite your entry. The more paperwork you do in advance, the faster and smoother your entry will be . Airport wifi can be a bit spotty, so always have screenshots, etc.

Now the customs declaration is necessary to fill it out online , they no longer give on the plane the typical pink paper of before. Then, when you arrive at the airports in Indonesia, there are computers so that people can fill out that form online . So, if you have it already filled, you will also save waiting time in the queue destined to carry out that procedure.

Fill in the online customs declaration form through the Electronic Custom Declaration (ECD) website.

Once you have filled out the form, you will receive a QR code that you must scan when passing through the customs department of the airport.

Remember that the Electronic Custom Declaration ECD can only be filled out 3 days (72 hours) before the departure of your international flight to Indonesia .

⚠️ IMPORTANT! ⚠️ You can consult all the detailed and updated information regarding requirements to travel to Indonesia in the article on our website: Coronavirus in Indonesia, information for the traveler

I’ve been read, Good Author, such inspirative, Thanks for this Article

' src=

Hi, I am already in Indonesia under eVOA, however, under the extend tab I have no options to extend the evisa. Do you know what could be happening? Thanks!

' src=

Hi there, we have encountered the same issue and I have not met anybody that succesfully extended their E-VOA online. Did you manage to fix it? Looking forward to you reply and thank you in advance! Danny.

' src=

I had a “Payment Failed” come up due to sufficient funds to pay for the Visa Extension. That has now been fixed, but I can not see where to make payment on the Extend page. It asks for payment, but no where to start inputting the credit card payment details. Does the page reset after a certain amount of time?

' src=

Eric have you been able to sort this out? I’m having the same issue…

' src=

Hello, the extension of the e-visa requires that you get a picture taken at the immigration offices. If you apply online for the e-voa extension, do you still require to go to the Immigration offices to get your picture taken??? Thanks

' src=

Hi Mark, if you apply for the e-voa online, then do not need to go to the immigration offices to take the picture for the extension. All the process for the extension can be done online.

' src=

I have done my e visa but unable to do for my wife or children. Do we need separate email id for each person. My children are minor. How can we take E Visa for them?

Hi Alex, exactly, you need to create a new account (with different email) for each person, even for the children. Safe trip!

Hi, I am planning to stay around 45/50 days in Indonesia so I want to apply for the e-VOA and then request an extension (that is cheaper than requesting a 60 day touristic visa). My doubt is about the return ticket, can I enter the country with a return ticket date that is after the first 30 days of the visa without the extension (extension that according your very good article can be requested only once I’m already in the country) ? Thanks a lot for your reply!

Hi Diego, to enter Indonesia with the e-voa visa, the date of the return flight must be within the first 30 days of the visa. Have a safe trip!

' src=

Hi my understanding is a 30 day visa is 500,000 Ind, if the return date is more than 30 but less than 60 days the cost is 1,500,000 and must be completed online now? The issue I am having is understanding what funding details is required and reducing pdf document to 10 mg.

Hi Ray, in this case you should apply online for 60 Days visa. You need a financial proof for funding your stay in Indonesia of at least USD 2000, such as: – Personal bank statement showing the last 3 months period – Latest salary slip – Time deposits You can use any website for reduce PDF documents such a: Safe travels!

' src=

Hi! I was searching for info on whether I should apply for the 60-day tourist visa or the 30-day visa because I am going for 35 days. Having read that some people have not been able to extend the visa online, it seems less hassle to apply for the 60-day visa (even though it’s more expensive). If you agree with that, then my question is regarding the financial proof of funds required – is it all of the items you listed (bank statement, salary slip, time deposits)? Or will just one thing like a bank statement suffice? I ask because I’ve just stopped working to take a year off and don’t have any current proof of income from a job. But I do have a sufficient bank statement. Thanks!

Hello Kirsty, I’m glad to inform you that the immigration website is now functioning much more smoothly compared to a few weeks ago. As a result, extending visas has become less problematic. Regarding the financial proof required for the 60D visa, a bank statement should suffice. Wishing you good luck and safe travels!

I’m trying to extend my visa. I got to the payment part and for some reason it didn’t get through so now I’m waiting for them to let me try again. However, at no point in the process did they ask me for my return flight, which is now different to the one I showed the immigration officer so I wonder if the extension will be approved or not…

Hi Tomas, Unfortunately, sometimes the official government website is giving many problems to carry out the extensions online. Good luck!

' src=

Am trying to apply for an eVOA – all the details are in the system but never get option to pay. When looking at the application you then see “waiting for payment” but of course without being able to actually set up payment, the application expires.

Hi Martin, try to use another web browser to apply for the visa. Good luck

' src=

@Dalila, @Mark: Same here: I got my eVOA but no chance to extend it on (the extend tab after you login) So what to do?

' src=

Could it be that you cannot extend the 60days visa before the last 30days? Or something in this direction? Also my extend tab is empty (in indonesia since 10 days

Hi Silvan, the 60 days VOA visa is not possible to extend. Only the 30 days VOA visa can be extended another 30 days, and the extension should be made before the first 30 days. Thanks

' src=

Hi Norberto,

I don’t understand the answer to Diego. He wants to apply for an extension of the E-VOA because he will be staying in Indonesia for a longer period of time. Logically, his return flight will not fall in the first 30 days, but on a later date. That is why he wants to apply for an extension (which is possible, isn’t it?). Otherwise, what’s the point of an extension? I will soon be going to Indonesia for 31 days and also need to apply for an extension for 1 extra day. My return ticket therefore falls outside the first 30 days. Can you answer this?

Hi Frances. It doesn’t really make much sense, but that’s how it works. What people usually do is make a ¨flight reservation¨ within 30 days just to show proof and then cancel that reservation. Have a good trip!

' src=

Hi, I have the same issue as Dalila. When I login my “Extend” page says there is no data available. I am currently 1,5 weeks in Indonesia with the E-VOA. When will the option become available to extend?

Hi Aukje, Unfortunately, sometimes the official government website is giving many problems to carry out the extensions online. If you cannot do the extension online, you will have to do it in an immigration office or ask for help to a visa agent. Good luck!

Can I apply online for a B211a Tourist Visa 60 days on Arrival then can be extended up to 180days? And do I need a sponsor for the B211a Tourist Visa. I read at that for this visa no sponsor is required. Can you check that for me I cannot get this info from immigration jakarta. Please help.

Hi Clare, for the visa B211 is a must to have a sponsor. At Come2Indonesia we can help you process the B211A visa. Please send us an email to [email protected] Thanks.

I am coming to Bali in May for my son’s wedding. I am staying for 57 days and am wondering what visa to get. Can do a E visa for 30 days and hope the extend button works or apply for a 60 day visa, even though more expensive, not worry about renewing. There’s a lot more documentation for 60days, how do I prove my finances, am a bit worried uploading a bank statement onto the internet. Also don’t think my passport photo meets the requirements, so am I able to take my own photo. Can you apply for a 60day visa in Bali. Thank you for any advice you can give me, am finding all this confusing.

Hi Heather,

Please note that the 60-day visa option is exclusively available online. If you prefer not to submit all the required documentation online for the 60-day visa, you can opt for the 30-day visa instead. Upon your arrival in Indonesia, I recommend initiating the extension process promptly to allow for ample time in case of any issues with the official website. Wishing you safe and pleasant travels!

' src=

Hi. I just arrive to Indonesia with my EVOA for 30 days. I want to extend today, so the “next 30 days” will start to count from the day I apply or from the day my original visa finish?

Hi Jeronimo, the extension will start count from the day that your originally visa expired. Good luck!

' src=

How much time before the trip do you have to apply for the 60 days VISA?

Hi Ada, once the VOA is issued you have 60 days max to enter to the country. You can apply even the day before to enter to Indonesia but is recommended to apply at least 2 weeks before the trip. Safe travels.

' src=

Hi – this linked page re: advance visas does not work – I’ve tried multiple different devices, browsers and photos (and yes I have read the instructions very carefully and ensured my photos meet every requirement) but it always returns an “error” message upon clicking “submit”. This has been the case for the past week. Is the website currently down or is it usually faulty?

I’m running out of time to get the e-visa processed before arriving in Indonesia next week, and I need the 60-day one which is only available in advance.

Any tips/ideas please let me know! Eg is there any agent who will be able to complete the form if I cannot? Is there a helpdesk? Are website issues usually fixed within X days? Thank you

Hi Claire, I’m not sure what could be the problem. But if in the end you cannot process the visa through the web, the last option is to process the 30-day VOA upon arrival at the airport and then extend another 30 days within the country. Greetings

' src=

I want to extend my visa (30 days) for Indonsia. However, there is no “Extend button” on the website There’s only a button for home, information and contact us. Where do I have to click to request the extension??

Best regards

Hello Maxi, first you have to log-in / sign-in into your account. If you applied for a eVOA through the website, you already must have an account, once you log-in, you will see the label EXTEND in the main menu. Best regards.

Thank you very much for your quick response! I already expected the worst and thought I would have to go to the Immigration Office! Can you also tell me when the visa can be extended (how many days before the visa expires)?

Thank you in advance and many greetings, Maxi

Hi Maxi, you can extend your visa once you have entered Indonesia. It may take several days for your application to appear on the EXTEND page. You can make the extension until the last day your visa expires, but I recommend doing it as soon as possible, since the web sometimes does not work correctly and the process can be delayed. Good luck.

' src=

Some people faced problem with the EXTEND page. They have been more than 2 weeks in the country but the visa information still not in the EXTEND page. Looks like the system is bit glitchy.

Yes, many people are having this problem. In these cases, you should send an email to the contact address provided on the website so they can solve the issue, and the visa will appear in the EXTEND tab.

' src=

Hey! Thank you for the article ! Is the extend page issue solved yet ? Do I have to already be in Indonesia to ask for extension of VOA once applied for the VOA / How long does it take to get the VOA online ? Is it immediate ? And last but not least Lombok airport website chat officer says that yes you can enter Lombok International Airport with e-VOA whereas its not on their list

Also to apply to a voa I must provide the outbound is it ok to provide a outbound flight that is 58 days from date of arrival : knowing that I will apply for extension or do I have to provide one that is 29 days after arrival ?

Hi Patricia, if you are planning to stay in Indonesia 58 days, the best option for you is apply online for the 60 Days e-VOA, so you don’t have to worry about to make the extension. Safe travels!

' src=

The 60D e-VOA is much more expensive (IDR 1.5mil) and requires much more documentation e.g. financial proof and photo according to the official site. So wouldn’t going through extending a 30D e-VOA be simpler here and also cheaper as I believe extension is only IDR 500,000.

' src=

Thank you for the article. Very thorough.

We are trying to extend the visa.

We have scanned the QR code on the visa for extension, followed the steps, made the payment, received an email of payment confirmation, but no sign of the visa extension yet. When we check the platform, the extend button is active and we are not sure what to do at this point. Just wait more or the visa extension should have already arrived 3 days after the request? I also wrote an email to the contact on their page.

I can’t log in to the molina.imigrasi platform because they say the email address is not in the system, but when I try to make an account, the platform says my email is already in the system. So no way to log in, but I can still access the visa page through the email I received when I originally purchased the visa, before coming to Bali.

Thank you so much for the valuable information and your time to read the comment.

Hi Flavia, if you got the email with the payment confirmation means that it is already in their system, so no panic. Just keep trying contact with them by email to fix your web profile to be able to download the visa extension. Cheers!

In the end, it worked. There were some issues with the platform for a few days. They also answered the email and I could retrieve the extension from the site. Thank you for answering!

Hi Flavia! Happy to hear that the problem is solved. Enjoy your time in Indonesia!

If I am planning to get an e visa and then an e visa extension (60 days total) will my return ticket still be ok if it is after the first 30 days?

' src=

Hi All, great informative site. I have a question that hasnt came up yet so hoping this would clarify things for people in same situation.

I am currently in Bali with an online 30 day tourist visa. 7 days left till end of 30 days. I could extend but i want to come back for 60 days I have flights booked at the end of 30 days where ill be going to Singapore for 3 days. I want to come back to bali on the 60 day tourist visa.

However, am hesitant to apply online as it says you can only have 1 visa at one time, so if i try and book the 60 days now whilst im still here maybe they will reject it and i loose my money as i already have the 30 day VOA visa active.

Do I wait till i get to Singapore than apply then, but then this could take longer than my return flight back to bali eg 3 days then im stuck without a 60 day visa?

Its not clear how to do what i am trying to achieve so any help will be grateful, thx

BTW, the online application all works fine for me and it is good progress with visa application recommend everyone try it.

Hi Pau, appreciate your inquiry. Unfortunately, you cannot apply for a new visa while staying within the country. It’s necessary to wait until you exit and then apply. I would recommend submitting your application upon your arrival in Singapore. If your stay in Singapore covers three working days, you should be able to obtain your visa before returning to Bali. However, if the timeframe is tight, you might want to consider obtaining a 30-day visa on arrival at the airport. There aren’t many other viable options. Safe travels!

Hi, I have problem to extend my 30 days e-visa online, I was not able to login as it always come back say “your account is not activated “. Can I register another account to extend the visa ?

Hi Fe, if you encounter issues while extending your e-visa, I recommend reaching out via email to the following address: [email protected] Explain your situation, as they are typically prompt in responding to and resolving such issues. Best of luck!

Hi, I got a 30 e-visa without activated my account. Now I can not login into my account to extend it. I did register a new account with different email, but the visa data is not there. If I have to go to the immigration office to extend ,can it be done in 1 day or have to take 3 trips like normal procedure ?

Hi Fe, extending your visa at the immigration office will follow the standard procedure.

Hello, I have. B213 e-VOA and extended for 30 days a week ago. I have the payment confirmation emails and a download of the PDF extension permit, as pictured in your detailed description above.

However, whenever I log in to the molina.immigrasi portal I cannot see the extended permit in my account, which is making me a little nervous. Should I be able to see the extension permit in the account and download it?

My 30 day visa expired today so the extension should be valid from today.

Any help appreciated.

Hi Danny, if you’ve received your PDF extension permit and completed the payment, everything should be in order.

Hi! I applied for e-visa extension online, and received a confirmation of the payment, but haven’t received confirmation of the extension. information in my account wasn’t updates either. how much time does it usually tale to process?

Hi Mariia, check the status of the extension again in your account, if still not update yet, you always can send an email to the following address: [email protected] Explain your situation, as they are typically prompt in responding to and resolving such issues. Best of luck!

Hello I have to extend Indonesian visa before 30 days expire. I am on Nusa Penida. What can I do? Thank you My contact What’s up 0038631318144

If you initially applied for the eVOA online, extending it is a breeze through the official website: . Simply follow the online process for a hassle-free extension.

However, if you obtained your VOA upon arrival at the airport, the extension process involves a visit to an immigration office. To make this smoother, I recommend enlisting the help of a visa agent.

Best of luck with your extension, and feel free to reach out if you have any questions!

' src=

Hi there! We are looking to apply for the B211A visa online (2 adults, 2 children from the UK). Am i correct in thinking that you no longer need a sponsor for this visa, and the extension?

the online application also asks for a bank statment for our children, as they do not have bank accounts how do i submit their application online?

Thanks so much for your help! Daniell

Hi Danielle, please check this other post: Essential Documentation and Formalities to Travel to Indonesia in 2024

I wanted extend help and share my experience to those who’s in doubt.

Like some of you, I entered Indonesia with eVOA (single entry) which we all know it’s valid for 30days. Last week, I tried to read online and search the web. I’ve seen some comments where they’ve tried to use the EXTEND button in . Same to me, IT IS NOT WORKING. I tried to email their Contact but haven’t received any response yet a different agent emailed me. (no wonder how that agent know that I’m trying to extend my visa 😛 )

The default solution is to go to the nearest immigration office in the home/hotel address you’re staying longer. So this is what I did. 😉

I went to the immigration sometime bet 9-0:15am. The processing is smooth.

#1. Go to the Foreign Service counter. Mention your intent why you’re there. They ask for my passport, return ticket, photocopy of eVOA sticker (in my passport) and a photocopy of my passport. So this is just ‘ASSESSMENT’. Then the staff provided me 2 papers. Application Form and the letter form (saying your intent why you’re extending)

NOTE: Please bring BLACK PEN

After I filled up the form, the staff gave me a number and instruct me to go upstairs.

They have different services offered that is why the area is not crowded. eVOA has a separate counter/floor.

#2. My number is called by an immigration officer. He then read my form and ask questions (about the places I’ve mentioned in the form). So be aware, make sure you know something about the place. This is like mini assessment (again) and interview. The officer already mentioned the extended date and he wrote it in my application form.

NOTE: The officer also ask me for my digital eVOA. So dumb I forgot to print it. But he asked me to send it to the WhatsApp number then he printed it 🙂

#3. PAYMENT. After the assessment and mini interview, the officer ask me to go to the bank (BRI) to pay for the fee IDR 500,000. The bank is located in the ground floor. Please do note, they only accept cash and any local Indonesian Debit card/atm.

After the payment, I went back to the officer as he instructed. My number is no bearing already. He just ask me to come back to him and present the receipt. He is very kind and approachable.

#4. After validating my payment, he input something in the computer. Then he give me (NEW) number. He said that is for the Photo. ANDDDDD he also said that I can get my passport the next day, between 1-3pm in the COLLECTION COUNTER. I didn’t expect processing is fast.

#5. BIOMETRICS. My number is then called. Another officer in charge interviewed me. Like just trying to start a conversation. They’re very pleasant to talk to. She did took my photo and thumbprint and signature.

ALL THESE HAPPEN in just under 1hr. I’m happy with smooth processing.

—the next day– I directly went to the Collection Counter with the payment proof I have from yesterday. The lady said, I need to get number first. LOL. Too excited.

I get the queue number to the Foreign Service counter I went yesterday (the #1). Then go back again to the Collection Counter. In under a minute… I was able to get my passport. 😉

NOTE: Candi Borobudur assembly area has eVOA counter where you can apply to extend your eVOA. Unfortunately, I don’t have my passport when I visited Borobudur.

' src=

Hi! I’m going to spend 37 days in Indonesia. I thought to apply for a 30 day e-visa on arrival and later to extend it for another 30 days (60 day visa costs 1,500,000 IDR while 30 day e-visa plus its extension cost 1,000,000 IDR in total). I’ll be flying from Singapore to Jayapura via Jakarta (however in Jakarta I’ll be in a transit area only). Is it possible to apply for the 30 day e-visa on arrival if my airport of arrival is Jayapura or I should apply for the 60 day visa?

Hi Jakub, you still can apply for the 30 day e-visa on arrival. Safe travels!

' src=

Regarding the online visa extention, when I put in my passport info it says that the info cannot be found. Currently it is over 14 days before my visa expiration, would this be a reason behind this message? I have triple checked the information that I have provided and it is all correct.

' src=

We just applied for the tourist visa (60 days) online. Do you know if we can enter the country with this visa at any border or just via airport in Jakarta/Bali? We actually want to cross the border between Tawau (Malaysia) and Tarakan by ferry and hope it is possible.

Many thanks!

Hello Oli, yes, it should be possible to enter from any border. Good luck!

Travel Advisory July 24, 2023

Indonesia - level 2: exercise increased caution.

Reissued with obsolete COVID-19 page links removed.

Exercise increased caution in Indonesia due to  terrorism and natural disasters.  Some areas have increased risk.  Read the entire Travel Advisory.

Do Not travel to:

  • The provinces of Central Papua (Papua Tengah) and Highland Papua (Papua Pegunungan) due to civil unrest.

Terrorists continue plotting possible attacks in Indonesia. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting police stations, places of worship, hotels, bars, nightclubs, markets/shopping malls, and restaurants.

Natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis or volcanic eruptions may result in disruptions to transportation, infrastructure, sanitation, and the availability of health services.

Demonstrations occur frequently and have the potential to become violent.  Avoid demonstrations and crowds. 

Indonesia’s revised criminal code, which takes effect January 2026, includes penalties for defamation, blasphemy, cohabitation, and sex outside of marriage. It is unclear how Indonesian authorities will implement the revised criminal code.

Read the  country information page  for additional information on travel to Indonesia.  

If you decide to travel to Indonesia:

  • Monitor local media for breaking events and be prepared to adjust your plans. 
  • Visit the websites for  Badan Geologi  (Indonesian Geological Agency, Indonesian language only) for the latest information from the Government of Indonesia on current natural disasters.
  • Review the  CDC’s suggestions on how to prepare for natural disasters.
  • Be aware of your personal safety and security at all times. 
  • Enroll in the  Smart Traveler Enrollment Program  ( STEP ) to receive alerts and make it easier to locate you in an emergency.
  • Ensure your passport is valid for at least six months beyond your intended stay.
  • Follow the Department of State Facebook  and Twitter .  Follow the U.S. Embassy Jakarta on Facebook , Instagram , and Twitter .
  • Review the Country Security Report  for Indonesia.
  • Prepare a contingency plan for emergency situations. Review the  Traveler’s Checklist .

Central Papua and Highland Papua– Level 4: Do Not Travel

In Central Papua and Highland Papua, violent demonstrations and conflict could result in injury or death to U.S. citizens. Avoid demonstrations and crowds. Armed separatists may kidnap foreign nationals.

The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in Central Papua and Highland Papua as U.S. government employees must obtain special authorization before traveling to those areas.

Entry, Exit and Visa Requirements

Entry Requirements:  To enter Indonesia, your passport must have at least two blank pages and be valid for at least six months beyond the date of your arrival in Indonesia. If your passport does not meet these requirements, you will be denied entry into Indonesia. The Government of Indonesia will not admit travelers holding the 12-page U.S. emergency passport, issued by U.S. embassies and consulates overseas.

Visa-on-Arrival:  If you meet the requirements, you can apply for a visa on arrival at some international airports, seaports, or land crossings. To apply for the visa on arrival, you must have an ordinary (non-emergency) passport with at least 6 months of validity from the date you plan to enter and the date you plan to leave Indonesia and a return or onward flight booking to another country. There is a 500,000 Indonesian Rupiah fee (about $35). The visa on arrival is valid for up to 30 days. You may extend a Visa-on-Arrival once at the immigration office one week before it expires for an additional 30 days for a maximum of 30 additional days, for another 500,000 Rupiah.

  • Official visit or government duties;
  • Business meeting;
  • Procurement of goods;
  • Official meeting; or

Electronic Visa-On-Arrival:  You may also apply for an electronic Visa on Arrival (e-VOA) in advance if you are entering Indonesia at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Jakarta or Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali. Check the e-VOA requirements from Indonesian Immigration before applying. To apply for an e-VOA see .

Visa:  Travel for more than 30 days and travel for non-VOA purposes, including employment and journalism, requires that the appropriate visa be obtained from an Indonesian embassy or consulate before arrival. If you are traveling on an emergency passport, you must obtain a visa before arrival in Indonesia.

If you overstay your visa, you are subject to a fine of 1 million Indonesian rupiah (about $70 USD at current exchange rates; fees may change at any time) per day and may be detained and deported. U.S. citizens have been jailed for visa overstays or entering the country on the wrong visa class for their purpose of travel . Travelers coming to Indonesia for non-tourism purposes are strongly encouraged to consult Indonesian Immigration’s website. Travelers should generally carry a copy of their passport with them whenever possible to establish their identity and proof of Indonesian visa.

You must exit Indonesia using the same passport that you used to enter.  If this passport is replaced for any reason before you depart Indonesia, you must apply with Immigration to obtain a “special pass” (exit permit) in your new passport prior to departing.

Dual-Nationality:  Indonesia has laws that prohibit Indonesian citizens from holding additional nationalities. If you are an Indonesian with dual nationality, you could be compelled to renounce your Indonesian nationality through a formal act of renunciation. Please research Indonesian nationality laws and consult with a local attorney regarding any specific circumstance.

The U.S. Department of State is unaware of any HIV/AIDS entry restrictions for visitors to or foreign residents of Indonesia. The Government of Indonesia screens incoming passengers in response to reported outbreaks of pandemic illnesses.

Find information on dual nationality , prevention of international child abduction , and customs regulations on our websites.

Safety and Security

Terrorism:  Terrorist groups and those inspired by such organizations are intent on attacking U.S. citizens abroad. Terrorists are increasingly using less sophisticated methods of attack – including knives, firearms, and vehicles – to target crowds. Frequently, their aim is unprotected or vulnerable targets, such as:

  • High-profile public events (sporting contests, political rallies, demonstrations, holiday events, celebratory gatherings, etc.)
  • Hotels, clubs, and restaurants frequented by tourists
  • Places of worship
  • Shopping malls and markets
  • Public transportation systems (including subways, buses, trains, and scheduled commercial flights)

Extremists in Indonesia aspire to carry out violent attacks against Indonesian and foreign targets, and police have arrested more than 1,200 individuals on terrorism-related charges since 2018. Extremists may target both official and private establishments, including government offices, hotels, bars, nightclubs, shopping areas, restaurants, and places of worship. Be aware of your personal safety and security at all times.

Recent incidents of extremist violence include a December 2022 suicide bombing at a police station in Bandung, West Java that killed one police officer, a March 2021 bomb attack against a church in Makassar, South Sulawesi which injured 20 civilians, and May 2018 bomb attacks against three churches in Surabaya, East Java which killed 15 civilians and injured 50.

Demonstrations are very common in Jakarta, Surabaya, and other large cities, but less common in Bali. You should avoid demonstrations and other mass gatherings, since even those intended to be peaceful can become violent. U.S. citizens have been detained for participating in protests.  Demonstrations may become more frequent ahead of the Indonesian general elections scheduled for February 2024.

Currently, travel by U.S. government personnel to the provinces of Central Papua (Papua Tengah) and Highland Papua (Papua Pegunungan) is restricted to mission-essential travel that is approved in advance by the Embassy. Papuan separatists have kidnapped foreigners in the past and a New Zealand national was kidnapped by a separatist group in Nduga Regency in February 2023.

For more information, see our Terrorism page.

Crime:   In the last year several American citizens were victims of violent and serious crimes in Indonesia, particularly in Bali. As with any major tourist destination, U.S. citizens traveling in Indonesia are especially encouraged to always remain vigilant of their surroundings and read the following advisories carefully. Take sensible measures to protect yourself and your belongings.  Closely monitor bags and luggage and carry only essential items. Take particular care of your passport and bank cards and avoid traveling alone.

Police presence and responsiveness is less than it is in the United States, making it more difficult to report crimes quickly and receive police attention. U.S. citizens often cite language barriers as a major hindrance when reporting crimes.

Pickpocketing, sexual assault, vehicle theft, armed car-jacking, snatch and grab robberies of cell phones and purses, and residential break-ins are common. Avoid traveling to isolated areas late at night. Be aware of your surroundings, particularly vehicles or individuals that might be following you.

Use a reputable taxi company or hire a taxi either at a major hotel or shopping center and ensure the driver’s identity card is visible. If you are booking a car via a mobile app, always ensure that the driver is the same as the person on the app, share your journey with a friend via the in-app option, and know the contact information for the app’s security center. Be aware of drivers falsely claiming to be registered with online ride hailing apps.

Credit card fraud is a common problem in Indonesia. Criminals have “skimmed” credit/debit cards to access and drain bank accounts. Use an ATM in a secure location, such as a major bank branch, and check the machine for evidence of tampering. Monitor your account statements regularly.

Tourists and Indonesians have suffered from serious illness and have even died from "drink-spiking” and drink poisoning incidents, particularly in clubs and nightspots in urban and tourist areas. There have been reports of sexual assaults and drink spiking in Bali, Lombok, and the Gili Islands.  Make sure drinks are prepared in your sight and be careful about accepting drinks from strangers at clubs and parties or leaving drinks unattended. Tourists have also been robbed after taking visitors to their hotel rooms, and in some cases have found that their drinks were spiked. There have also been deaths and serious illnesses caused by drinking alcoholic drinks contaminated with methanol. These cases have occurred in bars, shops, and hotels in popular tourist areas like Bali, Lombok, the Gili Islands, and Sumatra.

Sexual Assault:  Women travelling alone may be subject to harassment and verbal abuse. Sexual assault, harassment, and rape occur. To minimize the risk, avoid travelling alone, especially at night; remain particularly vigilant in less populous areas; and be careful when dealing with strangers or recent acquaintances. Never leave food or drinks unattended or in the care of strangers. Be wary of accepting snacks, beverages, gum, or cigarettes from new acquaintances. These items may contain drugs that could put you at risk of sexual assault and robbery. Local authorities may not respond adequately to reports of sexual violence and harassment. If you are the victim of a sexual assault, you should report it immediately to local authorities and to the U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate General.  

Demonstrations  occur frequently. They may take place in response to political or economic issues, on politically significant holidays, and during international events. 

  • Demonstrations can be unpredictable. Avoid areas around protests and demonstrations. 
  • Past demonstrations have turned violent.
  • Check local media for updates and traffic advisories.
  • Participating in demonstrations on a tourist visa can lead to deportation.

International Financial Scams:  See the  Department of State  and the  FBI  pages for information.

Internet romance and financial scams occur in Indonesia. Scams are often initiated through Internet postings/profiles or by unsolicited emails and letters. Scammers almost always pose as U.S. citizens who have no one else to turn to for help. Common scams include:

  • Romance/Online dating
  • Money transfers
  • Lucrative sales
  • Gold purchase
  • Contracts with promises of large commissions
  • Grandparent/Relative targeting
  • Free Trip/Luggage
  • Inheritance notices
  • Work permits/job offers
  • Bank overpayments

Victims of Crime:

Sexual assault:  U.S. citizen victims of sexual assault should seek prompt medical assistance, contact the Embassy or nearest Consulate, and call the local police at 112. For a criminal investigation to be initiated by the police, the victim must make a full statement to the local police, in person.  Remember that local authorities are responsible for investigating and prosecuting crime. U.S. citizen victims of sexual assault may choose to be accompanied by a translator.

See our webpage on help for U.S. victims of crime overseas .

  • Help you find appropriate medical care
  • Assist you in reporting a crime to the police
  • Contact relatives or friends with your written consent
  • Explain the local criminal justice process in general terms
  • Provide a list of local attorneys
  • Provide our information on victim’s compensation programs in the U.S.
  • Provide an emergency loan for repatriation to the United States and/or limited medical support in cases of destitution. Follow this link for more information
  • Help you find accommodation and arrange flights home
  • Replace a stolen or lost passport

Domestic Violence:  U.S. citizen victims of domestic violence are encouraged to contact the Embassy for assistance.

Tourism: The tourism and recreational activity industries are unevenly regulated, and safety inspections for equipment and facilities do not commonly occur. Hazardous areas/activities are not always identified with appropriate signage, and staff may not be trained or certified either by the host government or by recognized authorities in the field.  Water sports, especially diving, can be hazardous in Indonesia with operators lightly regulated and hyperbaric chambers available only in Bali and Ambon.  Traffic is hazardous in Indonesia and U.S. citizens are frequently injured while riding rented motorbikes. Wearing a helmet is required by law. In the event of an injury, appropriate medical treatment is typically available only in/near major cities, and only basic stabilization may be available. Serious injuries require medical evacuation to another country. First responders are generally unable to provide urgent medical treatment or to access areas outside of major cities. Boat and ferry incidents are frequent; vessels rarely carry appropriate sizes and numbers of safety vests; passengers are encouraged to bring their own. U.S. citizens are strongly encouraged to purchase medical evacuation insurance. See our webpage for more information on insurance providers for overseas coverage ( ).

Please note:   The U.S. Embassy and Consulates do not pay the medical expenses of private U.S. citizens in Indonesia. It is the traveler’s responsibility to ensure adequate medical insurance coverage or funds for medical expenses.

Local Laws & Special Circumstances

Criminal Penalties:  You are subject to Indonesian laws. If you violate local laws, even unknowingly, you may be expelled, arrested, or imprisoned. Criminal cases can take months or even years to resolve, and suspects can be held without charges for up to 60 days, and in many cases longer. Indonesia‘s revised criminal code, which takes effect January 2026, includes penalties for defamation, blasphemy, cohabitation, and sex outside of marriage. Enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to stay up-to-date.

If you are convicted of possession, use, or trafficking of illegal drugs in Indonesia, you may be subject to heavy fines, long jail sentences, and even the death penalty. Some prescription medications that are available in the United States are illegal in Indonesia. Some drugs used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are illegal in Indonesia. Marijuana, Cannabis, hash, “edibles,” and products containing CBD or THC remain illegal in Indonesia, including for medicinal purposes. A medical prescription does not make it legal. If you take such products to Indonesia or purchase or use them in Indonesia, you can be arrested and face imprisonment, fines, deportation, or the death penalty. Illegal drug convictions often result in lengthy prison sentences, even at the simple possession level. Indonesian prison conditions are harsh and do not meet U.S. standards. Many prisons are overcrowded and provide minimal services. The costs of basic services, including healthcare, often must be borne by the prisoner.

Individuals establishing a business or practicing a profession that requires additional permits or licensing should seek information from the competent local authorities prior to practicing or operating a business.

Furthermore, some laws are also prosecutable in the United States regardless of local law. For examples, see our website on crimes against minors abroad and the Department of Justice website.

Arrest Notification:  If you are arrested or detained, ask police or prison officials to notify the U.S. Embassy immediately. See our webpage for further information.

Counterfeit and Pirated Goods:  Although counterfeit and pirated goods are prevalent in many countries, they may still be illegal according to local laws. You may also pay fines or have to give them up if you bring them back to the United States. See the U.S. Department of Justice website for more information.

Faith-Based Travelers:  See the following webpages for details:

  • Faith-Based Travel Information
  • nternational Religious Freedom Report – see country reports
  • Human Rights Report – see country reports
  • Hajj Fact Sheet for Travelers
  • Best Practices for Volunteering Abroad

LGBTQI+ Travelers:  LGBTQI+ status or conduct is not illegal, but local authorities sometimes take legal action against, or tolerate harassment of people engaging in LGBTQI+ relationships or openly expressing LGBTQI+ identity. Some local governments have passed laws criminalizing LGBTQI+ relationships. Same-sex marriages or civil unions recognized as valid in other countries are not legally recognized in Indonesia. The Indonesian Parliament revised the criminal code to include penalties for cohabitation and sex outside of marriage. These revisions, however, will not come into force until January 2026, and how they will be implemented is unclear.

See our LGBTQI+ Travel Information page and section 6 of our Human Rights report for further details .

Sharia Law:   Sharia law is enforced in Aceh province and may exist unofficially or through local legislation in other areas. The law is intended for Muslims and should not apply to non-Muslims or foreign visitors. You should be respectful of local traditions, mindful of social norms, and seek guidance from local police if confronted by Sharia authorities. 

Earthquakes and Tsunamis:  There are approximately 4,000 earthquakes per year in Indonesia, or more than 10 per day on average. While most earthquakes are mild, some cause significant destruction and can trigger tsunamis. Tsunami warning systems may not be operable, or reports of tremors and tsunamis may be delayed. Local construction standards are lower than in the United States, and many structures including hotels and malls are prone to damage or collapse in an earthquake. Access to disaster-affected areas is often difficult and assistance from the U.S. Embassy may be limited.

If a major earthquake or landslide occurs close to shore, you should follow the instructions of local authorities, bearing in mind that a tsunami could arrive within minutes. The Indonesia Tsunami Early Warning Centre issues tsunami warnings when a potential tsunami with significant impact is imminent or expected.

Volcanoes:  There are 127 active volcanoes in Indonesia. Eruptions frequently cause travel delays, displace local populations, and disrupt economic activities. 

Environmental Quality:  Air quality in Indonesia’s major cities can range from "unhealthy for sensitive groups" to "unhealthy." Current air quality data for Jakarta can be found on the Embassy’s  Air Quality  page. Tap water is not potable throughout Indonesia and should not be consumed. 

Mountain Hiking:  When hiking in mountainous areas, obtain current information on local conditions, travel with a reputable guide, have overseas medical insurance, and carry a local mobile phone. Never go hiking or climbing alone. Particularly dangerous trails may not be clearly labeled as such. Hikers on Puncak Jaya in Papua should have realistic primary and backup plans for climbing down the mountain. Tour operators have abandoned climbers. Taking shortcuts through private property is considered trespassing and is not a safe or legal alternative to a proper plan. If possible, ensure your hiking plans are registered and known to local authorities and/or tourism operators, as this helps identify your presence in these areas in the event of an emergency. 

Dual Nationality:  Indonesian law does not recognize dual nationality for adults over 18 years of age. U.S. citizens who are also Indonesian nationals may be required to renounce their Indonesian citizenship and may also be deported.  Please visit our Dual Nationality page .

Travelers with Disabilities:  Persons with disabilities will face severe difficulties in Indonesia as most public places and transportation facilities do not accommodate disabled people. The law in Indonesia prohibits discrimination against persons with mental and physical disabilities, but the law is seldom enforced. Social acceptance of persons with disabilities in public is not as prevalent as in the United States. Expect accessibility to be extremely limited in public transportation, lodging, communication/information, and general infrastructure.

Students:  See our Students Abroad page and FBI travel tips .

Women Travelers:   Women traveling alone may be subject to harassment and verbal abuse. Sexual assault, harassment, and rape occur. To minimize the risk, avoid travelling alone, especially at night; remain particularly vigilant in less populous areas; and be careful when dealing with strangers or recent acquaintances. Never leave food or drinks unattended or in the care of strangers. Be wary of accepting snacks, beverages, gum, or cigarettes from new acquaintances. These items may contain drugs that could put you at risk of sexual assault and robbery. While domestic violence is illegal in Indonesia, these laws are rarely enforced. Local authorities may not respond adequately to reports of sexual violence and harassment. If you are the victim of a sexual assault, you should report it immediately to local authorities and to the U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate General and seek medical attention. See our travel tips for Women Travelers .

The Government of Indonesia requires all non-Indonesian citizens entering the country to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. 

Medical Care:  For emergency services in Indonesia dial 112.

Sanitation and health care conditions in Indonesia are far below U.S. standards. Routine medical care is available in all major cities, although most expatriates leave the country for all but the most basic medical procedures. Physicians and hospitals often expect payment or sizable deposits before providing medical care, even in emergency and/or life-threatening situations. See our  Embassy's  website for a list of English-speaking doctors and hospitals, but keep in mind that even in large cities the quality of English-speaking medical personnel will vary and there are often communication difficulties. In remote areas there may be no English-speaking medical personnel. Psychological and psychiatric services are limited, even in the larger cities, with hospital-based care only available through government institutions.

Ambulance services are not widely available, and training and availability of emergency responders may be below U.S. standards. Ambulances are not staffed with trained paramedics and often have little or no medical equipment. Injured or seriously ill travelers may prefer to take a taxi or private vehicle to the nearest major hospital rather than wait for an ambulance.

We do not pay medical bills.  Be aware that U.S. Medicare/Medicaid does not apply overseas. Most hospitals and doctors overseas do not accept U.S. health insurance.

Medical Insurance:   Make sure your health insurance plan provides coverage overseas. Most care providers overseas only accept cash payments. See our webpage for more information on insurance providers for overseas coverage. Visit the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for more information on type of insurance you should consider before you travel overseas.

We strongly recommend supplemental insurance to cover medical evacuation, which can exceed over $100,000 per person.

Always carry your prescription medication in original packaging, along with your doctor’s prescription.  Be aware that Indonesian authorities may consider some prescription drugs as illegal narcotics. The Indonesian government does not publish a list of which pharmaceuticals are considered contraband, and these decisions may be arbitrary.

U.S. citizens are advised against mailing or shipping by courier any medications to Indonesia. Indonesian authorities pay close attention to packages containing pharmaceuticals and may detain or arrest recipients of both prescription and over the counter medications. Even if a medication is legal or has been prescribed in the United States, it may be considered an illegal narcotic in Indonesia. U.S. citizens are advised to only hand carry prescription medications into the country, in the original packaging with a copy of any prescription. The U.S. Embassy and Consulates cannot assist you with the importation and/or release of medications.  

Marijuana, Cannabis, hash, “edibles,” and products containing CBD or THC remain illegal in Indonesia, including for medicinal purposes.  A medical prescription does not make it legal.

Local pharmacies carry a range of products of variable quality, availability, and cost. Counterfeit pharmaceuticals are a significant risk; patronize only reputable pharmacies. Malaria, dengue, Japanese encephalitis, and  Zika virus  are mosquito borne diseases in Indonesia.  Prevention of mosquito bites  is strongly encouraged; malaria preventive medication is needed in some areas. Pregnant women should be aware that Indonesia is a  CDC Zika risk area  and that Zika can be spread by mosquitos as well as  sexual contact . Diarrheal diseases are very common throughout Indonesia and  food and water precautions  are recommended. Rabies is prevalent in animals and animal contact should be avoided.

Vaccinations:  Be up-to-date on all vaccinations recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Further health information:

  • World Health Organization
  • U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Air Quality:  Visit AirNow Department of State for information on air quality at U.S. Embassies and Consulates. See the OPTIONAL stock language below for additional suggestions.

The U.S. Embassy maintains a list of doctors and hospitals. We do not endorse or recommend any specific medical provider or clinic.

Medical Tourism and Elective Surgery

  • Visit the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website for information on Medical Tourism, the risks of medical tourism, and what you can do to prepare before traveling to Indonesia.
  • We strongly recommend supplemental insurance  to cover medical evacuation in the event of unforeseen medical complications.
  • Your legal options in case of malpractice are very limited in Indonesia.


  • Exercise caution when purchasing medication overseas.  Pharmaceuticals, both over the counter and requiring prescription in the United States, are often readily available for purchase with little controls. Counterfeit medication is common and may prove to be ineffective, the wrong strength, or contain dangerous ingredients.  Medication should be purchased in consultation with a medical professional and from reputable establishments.
  • U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Food and Drug Administration are responsible for rules governing the transport of medication back to the United States. Medication purchased abroad must meet their requirements to be legally brought back into the United States. Medication should be for personal use and must be approved for usage in the United States. Please visit the U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Food and Drug Administration websites for more information.

Water Quality

  • Tap water is not potable. Bottled water and beverages are generally safe, although you should be aware that many restaurants and hotels serve tap water unless bottled water is specifically requested. Be aware that ice for drinks may be made using tap water.

Adventure Travel

  • Visit the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website for more information about Adventure Travel .

General Health Language

The following diseases are prevalent:

  • Tuberculosis
  • Chikungunya
  • Use the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended mosquito repellents and sleep under insecticide-impregnated mosquito nets. Chemoprophylaxis is recommended for all travelers even for short stays.
  • Visit the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website for more information about Resources for Travelers regarding specific issues in Indonesia.

Air Quality

  • Air pollution is a significant problem in several major cities in Indonesia. Consider the impact smog and heavy particulate pollution may have on you and consult your doctor before traveling if necessary. People at the greatest risk from particle pollution exposure include:
  • Infants, children, and teens
  • People over 65 years of age
  • People with lung disease such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema
  • People with heart disease or diabetes
  • People who work or are active outdoors

Travel and Transportation

Road Conditions and Safety:  Traffic in Indonesia is hazardous, congested, and undisciplined. Traffic signals are frequently ignored and often in disrepair. Motor vehicles share the roads with other forms of transportation such as pedicabs and pushcarts. Buses and trucks are often dangerously overloaded and travel at high speeds. Accidents between a car and a motorcycle are viewed as the fault of the driver of the car. Consider these risks before driving your own vehicle, especially if you are unaccustomed to Indonesian road conditions.  When an accident results in personal injury, Indonesian law requires both drivers to await the arrival of a police officer to report the accident.

Public Transportation:   Air, ferry, and road accidents that result in fatalities, injuries, and significant damage are common. While all forms of transportation are regulated in Indonesia, oversight is spotty, maintenance may not be properly performed, and rescue and emergency capacity are limited. Indonesia has experienced several fatal plane crashes and non-fatal runway overruns in recent years. Also in recent years, several ferry accidents and a train collision resulted in dozens of fatalities and even more injuries because of over-crowding and unsafe conditions.

See our  Road Safety page  for more information. Also, visit  Indonesia's national tourist office  online for road safety information.

Aviation Safety Oversight: The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has assessed the government of Indonesia’s Civil Aviation Authority as being in compliance with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) aviation safety standards for oversight of Indonesia’s air carrier operations.  Further information may be found on the FAA’s safety assessment page .

Since 2014, several private pilots have inadvertently crossed into Indonesian airspace and have been detained and paid heavy fines. If you intend to fly on private aircraft through Indonesian airspace, get clearances from Indonesian aviation authorities before you depart. 

Maritime Safety and Security:   Inter-island travel by boat or ferry can be dangerous: storms can appear quickly, vessels may be over-crowded and lack basic safety equipment, and safety standards vary. Ferries have sunk, resulting in loss of life. The Indonesian Search and Rescue Agency records boat and ferry accidents resulting in injuries and deaths yearly. Boats and ferries used in tourism or general transportation frequently break down, stranding passengers or capsizing; not all boats are equipped with adequate life vests. Make sure you are satisfied with safety equipment and life jackets before travelling. 

Piracy:  Maritime piracy and other related crimes in and around Indonesian waters continue. Recent reports include thefts of valuables or cargo from boats that are in port and out at sea. Before traveling by sea, especially in the Strait of Malacca between Riau Province and Singapore, and in the waters north of Sulawesi and Kalimantan, review the current security situation with local authorities. Be vigilant, reduce opportunities for theft, establish secure areas on board, and report all incidents to the coastal and flag state authorities.

Maritime Travel:  Mariners planning travel to Indonesia should also check for U.S. maritime advisories and alerts on the  Maritime Administration website . Information may also be posted to the websites of the  U.S. Coast Guard  and the  National Geospace Intelligence Agency  (select “broadcast warnings”).

In recent years, private vessels have inadvertently anchored in Indonesian waters, especially near Singapore, and have been detained and paid heavy fines.

Visa policy of Indonesia

By Twofortnights – Own work , CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link

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.

  • A passport that is valid for at least 6 months from the day you enter Indonesia.
  • A passport that has at least one complete blank page.
  • Proof of a return flight or onward flight out of Indonesia.

If the immigration officer has a suspicion that you may abuse the free visa you might also be asked for proof of sufficient funds to stay in Indonesia for the duration of your visa.

The Indonesia Visa is counted per day, not per night. Your first day and last day are included in the 30 day calculation. Even if you enter Indonesia at 23:55h (11:55pm), the last 5 minutes before midnight will still be considered a full day. The same for your departure.

This visa is for a single entry visit. Every time you exit and re-enter Indonesia you will get a new 30 day free visa.

2. Indonesia Visa Free Entry for 169 countries

Nationals of 167 countries and 2 special regions can get a free 30-day non extendable visa.

67 Visa On Arrival countries (click to view)

  • United States

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.

4. Extend your Indonesia Visa

There are some options to extend your 30 day tourist visa although it depends what country you are from. 67 Visa on arrival country  can extend their visa once. The extension costs USD 35 so in total you are paying USD 70 for a 60 day stay. After 60 days you will need to leave the country. Alternatively any of the above countries can do a “visa run” to extend their visa. A visa run is usually done in one day. You leave the country on a budget flight to the nearest overseas airport. You can leave on a morning flight and return on an afternoon flight.

5. Other countries

If your country is not listed above then you will need to apply for a visa at the nearest Indonesian Embassy before travelling to Indonesia.

6. Overstay penalty

If you overstay your visa then the official penalty is Rp 1,000,000 per day you have overstayed (previously 300,000 per day).

The maximum allowed time you can overstay is 60 days. If you have overstayed your Indonesia visa for more than 60 then you are in the country without valid visa. The punishment for not having a valid visa is a maximum 5 years sentence or maximum Rp 500,000,000 penalty. (article #119 of UU 6/2011).

Hey, we are thinking of visiting Indonesia from Norway, can you without having a visum, get in 30 days and then get out of the country and then come back the next day to get new 30 days? If so how many times can you do this?

I have now KITAS and shall retire soon. I do not want to leave country when my work ends but stay 30days. How can I get tourist visa without leaving Indonesia? I am not going to apply retirement visa.

I got overstay with six days and I payed the fees After that I applied for new visa Is the overstay will effect to my applying ?

Hi, im from Philippines and right now im in Thailand, is ut possible to enter Bali?

Hi, if I live in the UK but have a Thai passport, do I need a visa for a 3 week holiday in Bali?

Is it possible to apply for the visa extension on arrival eg if you plan to stay for 35 days and will be in a remote area at the end of 30 days?

Yes you can extend as early in your first 30 days as you like. The 30 day extension will start when you have used up your first 30 days. Please note that you cannot apply for your extension at the airport. You can only apply for the visa extension at the immigration office. When you do arrive in Bali you will want to make sure you choose to pay for the USD 35 Visa On Arrival as the Free Visit Visa cannot be extended.

Good day and thank you for your help. I am lebanese passport holder and I would like to know if I can get a visa on arrival or I need to submit tourist visa application before traveling. Also, it will be great to know what are the options to renew the visa after 30days.

Many thanks again.

Dear Ketut I’m looking to travel to Bali for healing and I don’t know how long will it take my question is if I don’t have proof of a return flight or onward flight out of Indonesia will they let me pass or not ? also ive read you need one photo too ?im from greece

Hello, My plan is to go to Bali for 55 days and I was thinking that visa on arrival is the best option and easier than arranging a visa at the embassy in my home country because of all the requirements. However, I wish to book my flight for the period i intend to stay and the flight out of Bali will then be within 60 days (so visa on arrival+extension of the 30 days) and not within 30 days, as the visa on arrival is really for initially when I enter the country. My question is if it is fine to book a return flight that is within the 6o days upon arrival and explain to immigration that I will extend my VOA with the extra 30 days or does the flight have to be within the initial 30 day VOA day limit? I don’t understand how people book their flights to stay in Bali for more than 30 days if it is not ok to book flights this way. I haven’t found an answer to this question and would appreciate the answer if you know it. Thank you Caroline

Although it is a requirement to show that you have a flight that leaves within the time of your visa stay, the immigration officers do understand that this is not always the case. If they make a fuss then you can book a flight out of Indonesia from your smartphone so that at least you can enter the country. Having said that, in some cases it is not the immigration officers blocking entry, it may be the airline that makes a fuss when you check-in for your flight to Indonesia and they notice you don’t have a flight out of the country. If immigration refuses entry then the airline will be liable to get you out of the country.

Hi im a 22 year old Australian male, just wondering about the Free Visa, does this mean i can just arrive in Indonesia and go to Immigration and get a visa for free no worries? is there any chance of me being declined? Im a little confused

If you meet the requirements in chapter one then you should be allowed to enter on the free entry visa.

I am Kenyan citizen and is planing to come to Jakarta for leisure for just 4 days. Even Kenya was listed as 169 Visa Free Country but is it necessary to apply Visit Visa as I am confused.

Looking forward for your reply soon.

If you have a passport from Kenya you are eligible for a free 30 day visit visa on arrival providing you meet the requirements.

Hi my wife and I are from Canada and we have already purchased the VOA at the airport as we will be staying 32 days in Indonesia. I understand now we need to visit an immigration office to pay the other half of the fee and extend this. I have heard that this process can take 2-3 weeks sometimes. Is this true?

The extension process takes 5 working days. You can start the extension process at any time during your first 30 days. The latest you can start the extension process is 1 week before the end of your fist 30 days. Regardless when you extend, the extension will start from day 30 so in total you will have 60 days (30+30).

Hi! My partner (australian) and I (argentinean) will travel to Indonesia soon on tourist visas, and want to stay for 60 days. I wonder if we can directly pay the 70 usd at once when we arrive to the country, or we need to pay the 35 usd, and then do the paperwork for the extra 30 days? I hope you can clear my doubt. Thanks!!

You cannot extend it at the airport. You will have to visit an immigration office and do it there.

Hi I am from Philippines. Do I still need to have anti Polio vaccine if I will just travel around Bali for 4 days? I am not sure as well if I was injected with the vaccine when I was a kid.

No vaccines are required by law when visiting Indonesia.

I am flying to bali, then traveling to other islands, planning to pay 35 on arrival and then extend but I do not know where or what locations would that be possible, i might be in borneo or maybe papua, but I am not sure since I am worried about the extension. Please advise

Hello Sir, I am Indian passport holder with Kuwait Residency stamped on passport do i need to apply visa in advance or i can get it on arrival?

You are eligible for a free 30 day visa upon arrival.

Can I travel to Bali with a USA green card holder and refugee travel document?

The deciding factor is your passport nationality, not the permit you have to live in the USA. What is your nationality?

Hi there, I’m coming to Bali on the 18th February. Am I aloud to book an exit flight back that is over the 30 days and then on arrival extend my Visa?

Hello! I have a US passport but live in the Philippines. My two nieces and I are visiting Indonesia from Nov 28 thru Dec 3. Because of the recent polio vaccination certificate requirement by certain countries including Indonesia, do we still need to present such certificate? If there is a vaccination counter at the airport, what is the fee? Thank you.

Hello, I am not familiar with any legally required proof of vaccinations when traveling to Indonesia. Can you share the source of your information?

Regarding my query on November 14, 2019 — This info is from the news telecast about two weeks ago in light of some polio patients found in the Philippines.

Hi I am a Filipino and I currently work in Singapore my friend is coming in Singapore by December 21st and I am planning to take her to Bintan island for a 3 day stay from December 26-28, afterwhich both of us will go back to Singapore since her flight back to Philippines is on the 29th of December. Would it be okay? Is there possibility that we’ll have problems at Bintan and Singapore Immigration? Looking forward for your response.

Yes that will be fine.

Assalamu’alaikum Saya punya kerabat yang berasal dari Bangladesh, dia bekerja di Singapura. Dia ingin mengunjungi Indonesia untuk beberapa hari. Pertanyaan saya adalah, haruskah dia mengajukan permohonan pembuatan visa untuk pergi ke Indonesia? Dimana alamat kantor untuk pembuatan visa di Singapura?

Hi I’m a Filipino citizen I visited my wife a week ago I arrived..I just want to know I supposed.,to finish my free visa stay on march 1 and I’m going to leave the country. then how many days do i need so i can enter again here in indonesia.


You can return the same day. There is no minimum time.

I am Malaysia citizen and is planing to come to Jakarta for leisure for just 4 days. Even Malaysia was listed as 169 Visa Free Country but is it necessary to apply Visit Visa as I am confused.

If you have a passport from Malaysia then you do not need to apply for a visa if you stay for less than 30 days.

Hello. I am a US citizen. I want to go to Bali, pay for the $35 VOA visa, leave the country and come back either same day or next to apply for the same visa again, so that I have a total of about 4 months there. Is this possible still?

Yes that is still possible.

is it really not possible to get an extension for Filipino passport holders?

Hi Ketut Just confirming it is still ok, to depart and re-enter bali on the same day. Many thanks STEFANIE Please forgive if this has posted twice.

Hi Stefanie, yes this is allowed. Please note that if you do this very often this may raise a red flag with Indonesian Immigration and they may ask questions why you are using the tourist visa so often.

HI Ketut, just confirming its still ok, to leave and re-enter bali on the same day. Many thanks STEFANIE

Hi there. When doing a “visa-run” do I need to exit the the other airport in Malaysia to get a stamp in or is it enough just to stay in the other airport and fly back to indonesia (in this case landing in another airport than the one I left)?

Hello, I am not sure if I understand your question. The important part is that you exit Indonesia through immigration and then you enter again. Where you fly to doesn’t matter.

Indonesia Visa on Arrival (VOA): Eligibility and Requirements

Published: May 13, 2024

Indonesia Visa on Arrival (VOA) is available for most countries in the world. Eligible nationalities can obtain VOA at many of Indonesia’s airports, seaports, and land borders.

The procedure to obtain VOA is very easy. The requirements for VOA are also quite relaxed. Moreover, it has recently become possible to extend VOA online just like Indonesia’s other tourist visas.

Quick summary:

  • Eligibility: 97 countries
  • Duration of stay: 30 days
  • VOA Fee: 500,000 IDR (~30 USD)
  • Extension: Once for 30 days more

If you haven’t already, read the Indonesia Visa Guide for information on various visa types for tourists, their eligibility and requirements.

Understanding indonesia visa on arrival.

Indonesia Visa on Arrival (VOA) Sample

VOA validity

Indonesia VOA is valid for 30 days . 

You pay and receive your VOA. But once you pass immigration, a “Stay Permit” is issued in your passport which allows you to remain in Indonesia for 30 days.

Any extensions of your visa are technically extensions of your “Stay Permit”. We will look into stay permit extensions later in this article. 

Duration of stay

The maximum duration of stay for Indonesia VOA is 30 days .

The day you land is considered Day 1. The last day you are allowed to stay in Indonesia will be written on your “Stay Permit” passport stamp next to “Valid Until”.

For example, if you land on 01 April 2024, you must leave Indonesia on or before 30 April 2024. 

Allowed number of entries

Indonesia VOA is single-entry only. Once you leave Indonesia, your VOA is void. If you want to reenter later, you will need to obtain a new VOA.

Allowed ports of entry

You can obtain an Indonesia Visa on Arrival at almost any international airport, seaport, and overland border, including Bali, Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Medan, Makassar, etc.

Here is the full list.

International Airports in Indonesia

International seaports in indonesia, land border crossings with neighboring countries, voa extension.

Indonesia VOA is extendable one time for an additional 30 days .

You will receive a “Stay Permit” of 30 days when you obtain VOA. This stay permit can be extended for an additional 30 days for a total of 60 days stay in Indonesia. 

The extended duration is added to the original duration. Even if you extend early, you will get 60 days in total.

For example, if you enter Indonesia using VOA on 01 April 2024 and extend your stay permit on 15 April 2024, you will receive your extension until 30 May 2024. That means you must leave Indonesia on or before 30 May 2024.

Indonesia Visa on Arrival Requirements

Indonesia Visa on Arrival (VOA) Eligible Countries

Who is eligible for Indonesia VOA

In total, 97 countries are eligible for the Indonesia Visa on Arrival This includes the 9 ASEAN countries plus Timor-Leste that are visa-exempt.

Visa-Exemption is non-extendable where as VOA is. Therefore, if you come from a Visa-Exempt country, you can still obtain a VOA if you plan to stay longer than 30 days. 

This is the full list of eligible countries:

  • Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • Liechtenstein
  • Netherlands
  • New Zealand
  • Papua New Guinea
  • Philippines
  • Saudi Arabia
  • South Africa
  • South Korea
  • Switzerland
  • Timor-Leste
  • United Arab Emirates
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

These 97 countries are also eligible for Indonesia eVOA , whose requirements are identical to VOA and the only difference is that it’s obtainable online.

Those not on the above list are eligible to apply for an Indonesia tourist visa (called Single-Entry Visitor Visa) whose requirements are somewhat stricter than VOA or eVOA.

Documents required for VOA

The following documents are required for Indonesia VOA.

Boarding pass

Return or onward ticket.

VOA is issued either when paying for the VOA or when clearing immigration. You will be asked to present these documents wherever the VOA is issued. 

Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months when entering Indonesia. Your passport must also contain at least one blank page. The VOA and Stay Permit stickers take at least half a page. 

You may or may not be asked to present your boarding pass for the flight you have arrived from. This depends on the airport and immigration officer. 

Personal experience

While paying for my VOA at Bali airport, I somehow lost my boarding pass for the flight I arrived on. Luckily the immigration officer did not ask for my boarding pass. I cannot guarantee whether or not a boarding pass is required for VOA. But if it is, make sure to hold on to it till you clear immigration.

You may be asked to present proof of onward travel . You can present your ticket out of Indonesia within 30 days.

If you have plans to extend your visa and have a ticket out in 60 days, you may have to do some explaining especially at the flight check-in. Immigration is aware so they may understand. To be on the safe side, you can get an onward ticket within 30 days to avoid questions.

The Visa on Arrival fee is 500,000 IDR (around 30 USD). You can pay in IDR or another common foreign currency like the USD, EUR, or AUD.

At some airports, for example, Jakarta and Bali, you may pay by credit or debit card.

There are ATMs just beside the Visa on Arrival payment desks.

Visa on Arrival Process at Bali Airport

Indonesia Visa on Arrival (VOA) at Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali

Obtaining VOA at Bali Airport (Ngurah Rai International Airport – DPS) is a 2-step process.

Step 1: VOA Payment

Step 2: voa issuance.

When you arrive at the Ngurah Rai International Airport, follow the signs and walk towards immigration. 

Near the immigration, you will see the signs for “VOA Payment”. Approach a VOA payment desk and present your passport. 

You will be asked for your preferred currency for payment. Tell them your preferred currency and they will tell you the exact amount you must pay in that currency.

For Indonesian Rupiah, it’s 500,000 IDR. But for other currencies, it varies depending on the exchange rate. 

In March 2024, it was 33 USD. 

After processing your VOA payment, they will return your passport with 2 copies of the VOA payment receipt. 

At Ngurah Rai International Airport, VOA is issued at the immigration. So after paying the VOA fee, head to the immigration and join the lines. 

When it’s your turn, present your passport, boarding pass and the 2 copies of your VOA fee to the immigration officer.

The immigration officer will stick VOA and Stay Permit stickers in your passport. They will retain one copy of the VOA fee. The immigration officer will give your passport and one copy of your VOA fee back to you.

The immigration officer may or may not ask for your onward ticket. They also may or may not ask any questions. 

Personal Experience I was asked how many days I plan to stay in Bali and a copy of my onward ticket.

After receiving your passport, check your stay permit to make sure all information is accurate including your “date of entry” and “valid until”. 

After immigration, fill out the electronic customs declaration and scan the QR code to clear the customs and enter Indonesia

How to Extend Indonesia VOA

Extend online.

Indonesian Immigration is moving toward a complete digitalization of its visas, including making the Visa on Arrival extendable online.

It should be possible to extend VOA online in a manner similar to the extension process for the eVOA.


When you land, you will be asked to register an account with one of the visa websites: Evisa or Molina . Make sure to use a valid email address.

Shortly after passing immigration, you will receive an email from “DIREKTORAT JENDERAL IMIGRASI REPUBLIK INDONESIA”  saying that “Your ITAS has been activated”. What this effectively means is that you now have a valid stay permit.

The email may also contain a PDF attachment of the stay permit.

How to Extend Online

To extend the VOA, you should go to the Home Page of either visa website and click on “Extend My Visa”. This will bring you to the Retrieve Page .

After you enter your personal details, a list of your past and current visas will show up. Click the “Details” button next to your most recent one, then click the “Extend” button. Then just follow the procedure.

You will have to submit a PDF of your passport, an onward flight ticket and complete the application form, then pay. The extension is issued automatically and sent to your email as a PDF attachment.

Extend In Person (Offline)

If you encounter any problems with the online extension, you can extend by visiting the Immigration Office (Kantor Imigrasi) in person.

You can do so independently by going to the nearest office. You will have to visit 3 times in total:

  • On the first visit, you will hand over your passport and pay.
  • A few days later you will have to go back and complete biometrics – fingerprints and a photo.
  • When the extension is ready you will be notified via email. Go back one last time to collect your passport with the visa extension stamp.

Alternatively, you can use one of the many visa extension agents. They will charge you a premium (usually around 800,000 IDR instead of the standard 500,000 IDR for extending) but you will only have to go to Immigration once for the biometrics. The agent will take care of the whole process for you. Some will even pick you up and drive you to the Immigration Office when it’s time.

Do not leave doing the extension until the last moment. The whole process takes about a week.

Entry requirements

This advice reflects the UK government’s understanding of current rules for people travelling on a full ‘British citizen’ passport from the UK, for the most common types of travel.

The authorities in Indonesia set and enforce entry rules. If you’re not sure how these requirements apply to you, contact Indonesia’s embassy in the UK .

Death from COVID-19 in Indonesia

If COVID-19 is given as cause of death and you would like to arrange a local cremation and repatriation of ashes, you will need to make contact with a local undertaker within 4 hours of the death registration to give your instructions. If you do not do this, it is likely that a local burial will take place.

You will also require a letter of no objection from the Embassy. This will be issued on the next working day.

Passport validity requirements

To enter Indonesia, your passport must have an ‘expiry date’ at least 6 months after the date you arrive and have at least 2 blank pages.

Check with your travel provider or the nearest Indonesian Embassy or Consulate to make sure your passport and other travel documents meet the requirements.

Dual nationality

Indonesian law does not allow dual nationality for those aged 18 and older. If you are a British national who has retained Indonesian nationality, you could have difficulties with immigration in Indonesia. You might have to renounce your nationality or hand in your Indonesian passport.

Visa requirements

You can apply for an e-visa before arrival on the Indonesian immigration website .

Visas on arrival

British nationals who visit Indonesia for the following reasons can also apply for a visa on arrival at a cost of 500,000 Indonesian rupiah:

  • official visit or government duties
  • business or official meeting
  • procurement of goods

The visa is valid for 30 days. It can be extended once (for a maximum of 30 days) by making an application to an immigration office within Indonesia. Make sure you extend your visa within the initial 30 days to avoid an overstay fine of 1 million rupiah a day.

KITAS extension (stay or work permit)

KITAS holders with expiring stay permit but currently outside Indonesia can apply for an extension through a sponsor. The sponsor must submit the application to the immigration office attaching a copy of the passport and proof of leaving Indonesia. The application is submitted without biometric sampling. The sponsor must report the foreigner’s arrival within 30 days.

Beware of visa scams by fake visa agents who, having taken your money, may fail to provide a visa or supply the wrong visa. This could result in your overstaying and a fine of 1 million Indonesia rupiah per day, detention, deportation and possible re-entry ban. Use the Indonesian Immigration self-service portal.

Visa scams are increasing in Indonesia. Some travellers have lost significant amounts of money. Others have been deported despite paying large fees to an agent to get the correct visa or extension.

If you choose to use to use an agent check they are reputable.

Overstaying your visa

Visitors who overstay without the proper permissions can be held in detention or refused permission to leave the country until a fine of 1 million Indonesian rupiah per day is paid.

If you have overstayed your visa for less than 60 days, you must pay your fine at the airport. After 60 days, you will be detained until the fine is paid.

If your visa will expire during a period of hospitalization or detention, contact Indonesian Immigration before your visa expires to avoid any overstay fines. The British Embassy Jakarta can assist with this.

Immigration officials in Indonesia may ask you for proof of onward travel (such as a return or onward air ticket). Make all reservations before leaving for Indonesia. Some airlines have refused to board passengers without evidence of onward travel.

Airport tax

Airport tax is included in the cost of all domestic flights within Indonesia. For some international flights departing Indonesia, airport tax might not be included in the price of the ticket. Check with your airline or travel agent before you travel.

Tourist levy

On 14 February 2024, the Bali Provincial Government will introduce a tourist levy of 150,000 Indonesian rupiah per person (approximately £8) to all foreign tourists arriving in Bali. Payment can be made online or on arrival at designated payment counters at Bali’s airport and seaport. Further information can be found on the Bali Provincial Government’s official website .

  • yellow fever

Indonesia to give visa-free entry to people from 20 countries

  • Oops! Something went wrong. Please try again later. More content below

Already eyeing up a winter break in the sun? Indonesia could soon be an easier destination to reach, as the government there plans to ditch holiday visa requirements for nationals of 20 countries.

"We are proposing visa-free entry for tourists from countries that provide the greatest economic impact," said Sandiaga Uno , the country's tourism minister.

France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Russia, Spain and the UK are the European nations on the list, according to state news agency Antara, which reported that the relaxation is to take effect in October.

Australia, China, India, Japan and the US are among the other countries whose passport holders are to get easier access to the 5,000 kilometre-wide, 13,000-island Indonesian archipelago.

Among those islands are Bali, popular for its beaches and party scene, and Komodo, home to the fearsome eponymous lizard. Also popular is the world’s most populous island, Java, which is home to 150 million people and to sights such as Borobudur, the world’s biggest Buddhist temple and Jakarta, the sprawling capital city.

Indonesia’s government is aiming for 17 million tourists in 2024, with 5.2 million recorded during the first 5 months of the year. Such an influx, if attained, would top the pre-Covid lockdown visitor number for 2019.

Of the 16.1 million foreign visitors recorded that year, more than a third landed on Bali, where - similar to sentiments seen in Europe’s big visitor draws such as Amsterdam, Barcelona and Venice - there have been grumblings about so-called overtourism.

In response, Bali’s local authorities earlier this year imposed a tourism tax. There have long been calls for tougher punishments for what Antara labels "problematic foreigners," a designation used in the wake of a British national being arrested last month for stealing a truck and colliding with motorists, while allegedly "under the influence."

In April, Indonesian airline TransNusa added routes from Bali to Manado, a diving spot on the island of Sulawesi, east of Borneo and south of the Philippines, and from Manado to Ambon, the regional capital of what were once known in Europe as the "Spice Islands."

The government aims to make it easier to get around the vast archipelago and to attract more tourists to areas other than Bali and Java.

Indonesia to Offer Visa-Free Travel to 20 Countries

Jakarta . Indonesia is set to grant visa-free visits to 20 countries by October, according to the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy. The proposal is now in its final stages.

"The process is almost complete, and the list of 20 countries has been submitted. We are proposing visa-free entry for tourists from countries that provide the greatest economic impact," said Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno in Jakarta on Monday.

Sandiaga noted that the implementation of visa-free visits will be evaluated over a six-month period.

He added that the proposal, submitted in December last year, is expected to be implemented before the end of his tenure in October.

"We have received signals that our visa-free visit target will be realized before the end of the current administration," he added.

In December 2023, the ministry proposed that 20 countries be granted visa-free entry to Indonesia to increase the number of international tourists and generate significant economic impact.

The list of 20 countries includes Australia, China, India, South Korea, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, the Netherlands, Japan, Russia, Taiwan, New Zealand, Italy, and Spain. Two additional countries are from the Middle East.

"These countries are major contributors to international tourism in Indonesia, including several Middle Eastern countries related to investment," said Sandi.

He believes that adding these 20 countries to the visa-free list will increase the number of international tourists, boost domestic consumption, attract investment, and create opportunities for digital economy development.

According to the Central Statistics Agency (BPS), the number of foreign tourists in Indonesia surged to 5.2 million travelers in the January-May period. Data showed that Indonesia recorded almost 3 million foreign tourists in January-May 2020, and the number dropped to 604,471 travelers in 2021, and 997,432 tourists the following year. It then eventually grew to 4.2 million foreign tourists in the first five months of 2023.

Indonesia is aiming to attract 17 million foreign tourists this year.

Indian tourists can now visit this country with a free-entry visa, check details here

W ith implementation in progress, Indian tourists will soon be able to visit Indonesia with a free entry visa. The move comes in response to Indonesia's efforts to boost the tourism sector and, hence, the nation's economy. The Asian nation is thus planning to allow tourists from 20 nations, including India to enter Indonesia with a free-entry visa.  

Tourism minister of Indonesia, Sandiaga Uno, made the announcement last week that the initiative to relax and grow the visa-free policy is in the works. The strategy will be finalised "before the change of government in October 2024," he promised reporters.

Free entrance visas to these 20 nations, according to Minister Uno, are anticipated to boost international visitor arrivals, which would have a multiplier effect on the economy. The objectives of this project are to encourage investment, increase domestic consumption, and aid in the growth of the digital economy.

The 20 countries are: 

  • China (PRC)
  • South Korea
  • United Arab Emirates
  • Saudi Arabia
  • The Netherlands
  • New Zealand
  • 2 unspecified Middle Eastern countries

The ASEAN member nations who at present qualify for visa=free entry to Indonesia are:

Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Laos PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. 

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, any Indian tourist travelling to Indonesia had to spend about Rs 75,151 per person. Now, they are spending approximately Rs 1,33,601.
