Indonesia Visa Information!
All travellers to Indonesia must be in possession of a passport valid for at least six months after arrival and (return) tickets proving onward passage. Some immigration officials will require six blank passport pages, so it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Visitors from countries not approved as either visa-free or eligible for visa-on-arrival must obtain a 30-day tourist visa from their local Indonesian embassy or consulate before entering Indonesia.
Visa-free: Visitors from the following countries automatically receive a 30-day visa permit free upon arrival in Indonesia: Brunei, Chile, Ecuador, Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR, Malaysia, Morocco, Peru, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
Visa-on-arrival: Regulations are constantly changing. At the present time, 65 countries have been approved for visa-on-arrival (voa). Currently the fees are US$10 for 7 days or US$25 for 30 days. It is recommended that you check with your local Indonesian embassy or consulate in advance of travelling for current regulations.
The visa-on-arrival can be extended one time for a maximum 30 days and cannot be converted into a different visa. The only way to stay longer than the allotted time of your visa is to leave the country and come back in again.
The nearest place for doing so is Singapore. Alternatively, it may be wise to apply for a 60-day visa at an Indonesian embassy or consulate before arriving in Indonesia. For further information, check the
