Certain nationalities need to obtain a visa to visit Indonesia. This depends on the purpose of visit and the length of stay. Some may obtain a visa upon arrival in Indonesia, and some will need to apply for a visa in advance, at the nearest Indonesian Overseas Mission.
Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the date of arrival and have a valid return ticket; please make sure that you have one entire blank page for the placement of your visa. If there is no page available, you run the risk of being turned away from Indonesia. The immigration officer at the port of entry may ask the passenger to produce any necessary documents (such as hotel reservation and proof of finance).
Prior to arrival, foreign passengers are normally given ‘arrival and departure’ cards and the ‘departure’ portion is necessary to be kept as it needs to be returned to the immigration officer upon leaving the country.
