Temporary Indonesia Visas

Indonesia Tourist Visa 

An Indonesia tourist visa has a maximum validity of up to 3 months, but permits a stay of no longer than 60 days within this 3 month timeframe. although longer stays are also possible.  This tourist visa (also known as the 'visitor visa' or 'visit visa') allows the holder entry to Indonesia, but strictly forbids them from engaging in any work while they are in Indonesia.  Indonesian tourist visa holders are also not allowed to extend their stay beyond the limits of the visa.

Transit Visa

Indonesia also offers a transit visa (which is also known as the short visit tourists visa issued on arrival).  Essentially this permits applicants to transfer through Indonesia for a period of up to 7 days while they are en route to another destination. Again, this visa class is strictly for travel purposes only, and holders cannot engage in any work or extend their stay while on this visa. As such, they must demonstrate that they have travel tickets for onward travel set before the transit visa's expiry.  

Please note: The transit visa is only available on arrival via a set number of airports and seaports in Indonesia.

Indonesia Business Visa  

The Indonesia business visa is designed to allow business travellers to come to Indonesia in order to pursue business activities, such as attending meetings and conferences.  However, it excludes holders from seeking employment in Indonesia.
