You know it, we know it, everybody who is a travel enthusiast is very familiar with this four-letter word. It is a little piece of document every international traveler must have or else they will find themselves not traveling at all.

For those of you who don’t know, that document is called the visa. Visa is a form of legal entry permit for anyone traveling to another country. Depending on the country you are visiting, they might have different laws and processes on how to get these documents.

In today’s article, EVisa Bali will share with you things you need to know about Indonesia visa requirements. So, if you are traveling to Bali or any other locations in Indonesia, read along because it might just save you from any visa troubles that might come up.

Indonesia Visa Requirements: Your Eligibility Depends On Your Travel Needs

First things firsts, visas are different. As mentioned by the Indonesian Foreign Affairs Ministry, Indonesia visa requirements and requests are handled by Indonesian Immigration and governed by Indonesian regulations.

Whether you are eligible for getting an Indonesian visa depends on three things:

  • Country of origin or where do you come from?
  • What is your purpose for travel?
  • Which specific visa are applying for?

This is because depending on your country of origin, you may be eligible for certain facilities that are otherwise unavailable for other nationalities. Your purpose of travel may also influence the types of visas you can and cannot apply for.

Documents required to apply for an Indonesia visa are mostly similar to other countries’ visa application requirements in general. The list of documents needed includes:

  • Passport. Valid passport for at least 6 or 12 months to get a single-entry visit permit with a duration of stay of up to 60 or 180 days.
  • Proof of capacity to afford living costs. In Indonesia, you need to have proof of owning at least 2000 US dollars or equivalent.
  • Travel Tickets. A copy of your travel tickets to Indonesia. 
  • Official Photo. Two copies of a 4 cm x 6 cm photo of you in color.

However, one thing to know about an Indonesian visa is that there is one more document that is required for traveling to Indonesia which is a Guarantee letter from a guarantor.

A guarantor is an individual or a company (agency) that will take full responsibility for your stay in Indonesia. They could be your travel agent, visa agent, or other authorized institutions that provide visa and entry permit applications to the Immigration office.

Without a guarantor, it would be impossible to stay in Indonesia for more than a month and you will not be able to get any extensions in case you want to stay in Indonesia longer.

So, how many kinds of Indonesian visas are there? Which visa are you eligible to apply for? Here are some short summaries of currently accepted visas and permits in Indonesia.

Indonesia Single-Entry Visitor Visa (B211)

The B211 is the most common Indonesian visa. It is primarily designed for any tourism-intended travels to Indonesia and adapted into three types of visas for specific needs.

The first type is the Indonesian Tourism Visa (B211A) which covers any travel which involves tourism, social, business, transit, and sports activities. Another type is the Indonesian Business Visa (B211B) which covers industry-related travel needs, like business emergencies.

Lastly is the Indonesian Journalist Visa (B211C) which is meant for any media-related travels like for journalism purposes (conducting interviews, reporting news from Indonesia, etc.) or filmographic needs (making a documentary or shooting a movie).

All of these visas are valid for up to a maximum stay of no longer than 180 days.

Indonesia Visa on Arrival and Visa Exemptions Facilities

In contrast to the official visa application like B211 visas, visitors may also be eligible to get a visa on arrival in Indonesia or are exempted from any visa requirement at all.

As per 9 June 2022, the Indonesian Foreign Affair Ministries explains that there are 9 airports in Indonesia where you may apply for Special Visa on Arrival (VOA). They are:

  • Soekarno Hatta, Jakarta
  • Ngurah Rai, Denpasar, Bali
  • Kualanamu, Medan, North Sumatera
  • Juanda, Surabaya, East Java
  • Hasanuddin, Makassar, South Sulawesi
  • Sam Ratulangi, Manado, North Sulawesi
  • Yogyakarta, Yogyakarta
  • Hang Nadim, Riau, Kepulauan Riau
  • Zainuddin Abdul Majid, Lombok, Nusa Tenggara Barat

To apply for the VOA, you would need to pay a fee of Rp.500.000 and vaccination certificates aside from the typical documents like passport and travel tickets. Currently, Indonesia is opening its Visa on Arrival services for 72 countries around the world. The list can be checked here at the Indonesian Foreign Affairs Ministry’s website.

However, not only Visa on Arrival, but Indonesia also have a visa exemption facility for a few selected countries, which are ASEAN countries. This means that foreigners from Brunei Darussalam, Philippines, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam are free to travel to Indonesia without a visa.

However, while Visa on Arrival and Visa Exemptions are very convenient, it is worth noting that they do not last forever. Both of these services would only be valid for up to 30 days and they cannot be extended.

Thus, if you are planning to come to Indonesia with these visas, please be careful not to overstay in Indonesia.
