In my previous trips to Indonesia or Bali, I never need a visa. But
policy has changed.
New Indonesia Visa Policy (commencing 1 Feb 2004)
If we had found out about this new visa requirement before we left, we would
not have to queue up for an hour at the immigration to get the visa on arrival (VoA)
It is said that visitors from the following countries can get a visa on
- New Zealand
- South Africa
- South Korea
- The United Arab Emirates
A 3-day visa costs US$10 while a 30-day visa costs US$25. You have to
pay the visa fee from a separate counter before you proceed to the Visa on
Arrival specific immigration desks.
If you are from the following countries, you have a visa-free status and you
don't need to purchase a VoA:
- Brunei Darussalam
- the Philippines
- Hong Kong
If you don't come from any of these countries then you have to apply for a
visa at the nearest Indonesian embassy or consulate.
