Visa

I. GENERAL INFORMATION

According to the Indonesian Government Regulation No 32 Year 1994, there are five main types of visa issued by the Government: namely, Diplomatic Visa, Service Visa, Transit Visa, Visit Visa and Limited Stay Visa.

The Diplomatic Visa is only intended for holders of a Diplomatic Passport traveling to Indonesia for Diplomatic purposes. The Service Visa is given to holders of Service/Official/Special passports, intending to visit Indonesia for an official business arrangement of the respective governments or international organizations, which is not for a diplomatic purpose. Duration of stay in Indonesia for these two kinds of visa is 30 days maximum, which could be granted for single or multiple entries, depending on the nature of the visit.

The Transit Visa is specialized for travelers coming to Indonesia for transit and having a connecting journey to another country or on the way back to their countries of origin. The Visit Visa includes those visiting Indonesia with the purpose of governmental business (if not holding Service/Special/Official passports), tourism, social and cultural matters, as well as for other business purposes. For a Transit Visa, holders are allowed to stay in Indonesia no more than 14 days from the date of entry and this is not extendable. The period of stay for a Visit Visa could be for 30 days or 60 days, based on the purpose of visit. The duration of stay can also be extended for another month to be arranged through the immigration office in Indonesia. For some cases, one could be given a Multiple- Entry Visa; as long as it has been approved by the immigration office in Indonesia

The Limited Stay Visa is issued if the applicant would like to stay in Indonesia more than 90 days and could only be granted if the purpose of journeys is one of the following activities, namely: investing, working, teaching or training, researching, celebrating religious activities, or joining husband or parents for wives or children of mixed marriages to Indonesian nationals, or of foreigners who have previously been granted the Limited Stay Visa, and for repatriation. This visa can only be attained upon the approval of the immigration office in Indonesia and is valid for single entry for a maximum stay of one year/365 days. Within 7 days after their entry into Indonesia, holders of a Limited Stay Visa are obliged to apply the conversion of Limited Stay Visa into Limited Stay Permit Card through immigration office in Indonesia.

Diplomatic and Service visas will be issued in the form of a stamp on the passport and in the meantime the other types of visa will be in form of sticker visa. All issued visas must be used within 90 days from the date of issue.

Some conditions and exceptions apply to holders of passports of certain nations; particularly for requirements and ways of obtaining the visas (see Section V below).
