Options to obtain visa authorization

Obtaining visa authorization prior entering Indonesia

Applicant may contact one of the listed authorized travel agencies in Indonesia and convey the intention to apply for a retirement visa. The appointed travel agencies will assist applicant in processing the authorization from the Indonesian Immigration Office, provide that the applicant fulfill all the requirements. Once an authorization is granted, applicant can apply the visa at the Indonesian Embassy in Bern through usual procedure (for information on how to organize a Limited Stay Visa at our Embassy, please click here).

Obtaining visa authorization when already entering Indonesia

The procedure is mostly the same as above, however, after obtaining an authorization, applicant must leave Indonesia and apply for the retirement visa at the nearest Indonesian Embassy abroad (e.g. in Singapore or Kuala Lumpur). However, we strongly suggest that applicant has already organized the visa authorization before travelling to Indonesia.
