Indonesia e-Visa Information

The government of Indonesia launched the Indonesian e-Visa in October 2020.

The primary motive for the launch is to streamline the Indonesia visa application process, and remove the need to wait in long border queues to obtain an Indonesia visa on arrival.

The Indonesian online visa has also been implemented to eliminate the need for in-person visits to submit a visa application at a diplomatic mission.

There are 2 types of online visa available for the country: the Indonesia e-VOA and the Visitor Visa for Indonesia:

  • The Indonesia e-VOA allows a stay of up to 30 days and is valid for tourism, business, or transit travel.
  • The Indonesia Visitor visa permits a 60-day stay for tourism purposes only.

Both visa types are single-entry permits and valid to enter Indonesia from 90 days from the date of approval.

An approved Indonesia e-VOA or electronic Visitor Visa also functions as a visa for Bali, meaning you can use it to travel to the popular tourist destination as well.

To obtain an electronic Indonesia visa on arrival or visitor visa, eligible applicants are able to fill out the simple Indonesia visa application form online. It only takes a few minutes to complete with basic biographical, passport, and travel information.

It is also necessary to provide some supporting documentation, and pay the online  Indonesia visa fees before submitting the form.

Those who wish to visit Indonesia or Bali for purposes not permitted with an e-Visa, such as to undertake permanent employment, must contact their nearest Indonesian embassy or consulate for further visa information.
