The outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus has now been labeled a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO), and countries all around the world have begun implementing measures to help contain the spread of the virus. Depending on the country, the preventative measures against COVID-19 include travel restrictions, border closures, and the suspension of flights
Visa Requirements for Indonesian Citizens
Visa requirements for citizens of Indonesia are restrictions to enter the borders of other countries across the world, which authorities of these territories have placed on Indonesian nationals.
According to the Henley Passport Index, the Indonesian passport is currently ranked as the 72nd most powerful in terms of travel freedom, as travelers from Indonesia can visit around 60 states across the world without the need to apply for a visa or with a visa on arrival.
Visa requirements for nationals of Indonesia can differ depending on the destination state, the purpose of the visit, or how long the traveler is planning to stay.
Several visa-free countries for citizens of Indonesia allow travelers to cross their borders for short periods of stay simply by presenting a valid Indonesian passport.
The visa-free stay varies between 14 and 180 days, depending on the country of destination, and is usually permitted for purposes such as tourism, business, or to transit to another country.
Some other visa-exempt territories require Indonesian travelers to pre-register for an electronic travel visa authorization before departure, which permits the country to detect any possible health or security risks.
If travelers from Indonesia are planning to visit a visa-free country for other purposes, such as to study or work, or longer periods of time, it will be necessary to apply for an embassy visa to travel to these same countries.
Indonesian passport holders must also apply for a visa if they travel to a territory not listed as a visa-exempt country list, regardless of the purpose of the trip or the intended duration of the stay. This may be either an electronic visa, a visa on arrival, or a consular visa.
