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 Indonesian 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, as part of the Indonesia COVID-19 control strategy.

In an effort to stimulate economic recovery, the Indonesia visa online is first being made available to business travelers from select countries who have a Travel Corridor agreement with the Indonesian government, as well as as well as investors, skilled workers, and civil servants.

To obtain an electronic Indonesia business visa, eligible applicants are able to fill out the simple Indonesia visa application form online, which only takes a few minutes to complete with basic biographical, apssport, and travel information.

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

An approved e-Visa for Indonesia may be granted for different periods of validity and permitted stay, and as either a single or multiple entry visa, depending on the needs of the traveler.

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