Visa-Free Travel to Indonesia Approved for an Additional 30 Countries

Destination Asia Indonesia is pleased to confirm that the Indonesian government has formally introduced visa-free travel for citizens from an additional 30 countries, stating that visa-free arrivals are valid for 30 days (with no extensions allowed), effective immediately.

Those countries eligible for visa-free travel to Indonesia include:
Singapore, Thailand, Myanmar, Brunei, Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Philippines, Chile, Morocco, Peru, Ecuador, Hong Kong, Macau, China, Russia, South Korea, Japan, United States, Canada, New Zealand, Mexico, United Kingdom, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium, Sweden, Austria, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, and South Africa.

The new facility is available to citizens from those countries entering for touristic purposes and while the Visa-On-Arrival fee has been waived, standard immigration entry and clearing procedures remain in place.

The five international airports through which citizens of the now 45 countries and territories can enter Indonesia visa-free are, Soekarno-Hatta in Jakarta, Ngurah Rai in Bali, Kuala Namu in Medan, Juanda in Surabaya and Hang Nadim in Batam.

While we can confirm that the visa free policy for visitors from the above countries is already in place at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport, we expect the other entry ports in the list to take a few days to streamline the process.

Currently visitors arriving through entry ports not in the above list, such as Lombok’s Bandar Udara Internasional airport or Yogyakarta’s Adisucipto International Airport will still have to pay the USD 35 Visa-on-Arrival fee. Sri Bintan and Tanjung Uban seaports in Bintan Island and Sekupang and Batam Center ports in Batam will also provide the Visa-on-Arrival facility.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any queries regarding this new policy.
