All visitors to Indonesia are required to obtain a travel visa, either prior to arrival or upon arrival in Indonesia. Holders of a regular passport who are traveling for tourism, business or social purposes may apply for a 30-day visitor Visa-on-Arrival at airports in Jakarta. A VISA ENTITLES THE HOLDER TO TRAVEL TO INDONESIA, BUT IT DOES NOT GUARANTEE ENTRY. AN IMMIGRATION OFFICER AT THE PORT OF ENTRY DETERMINES THE VISA HOLDER’S ELIGIBILITY BEFORE ENTERING INDONESIA. For details on Visa-on-Arrival and other visa information please visit the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia website http://www.embassyofindonesia.org.

This visa can be obtained directly when you are landed at the certain airports and seaport in Indonesia regardless of the purpose of your visits (Business, Tourist, Social). The Visa on Arrival is not a work visa nor a visitation visa.

If you plan to stay longer than 30 days, you need to mention your intention to stay longer. Visa on Arrival can be extended for another 30 days.


If you are entering Indonesia, you must have two fully blank passport pages in your passport. Indonesian immigration inspectors do not consider amendment pages in your passport to be blank pages. If your passport visa pages are nearly full, consider applying for a new passport or adding extra visa pages to your passport before you travel. If you don't meet Indonesian entry requirements, you may be denied entry with no recourse and put on the next available flight departing Indonesia.
