Indonesia Visa

All U.S. citizens need an Indonesia visa for entry into the country. In general, you should secure your travel visa before you arrive in Indonesia.

However, in some circumstances, you can get one on arrival. Thirty-day tourist and business visas are issued upon arrival in Indonesia at certain airports and seaports. The cost for these visas is $25.

Please Note: They are not issued at land border crossings. To secure a visa on arrival, you must present your passport with at least six months validity remaining and a round trip ticket or proof of travel beyond Indonesia.


Below is a list of common requirements for visas to Indonesia. You may be required to provide additional documentation depending upon the type of Indonesia visa for which you are applying.

  • U.S. passport valid for at least six months after scheduled date of entry. NOTE: If you are applying for a multiple entry visa, your passport must be valid for at least one year from the day you enter Indonesia. If you arrive in Indonesia with less than six months validity remaining, you will not be allowed to enter the country. If you are entering the country through Bali, your passport must have at least two blank visa pages. If you’re entering through another port, it must have at least one blank visa page.
  • Two copies of the visa application form
  • Two passport photos
  • Itinerary or letter from the appropriate authorities (e.g. travel agent) confirming your purchase of a round trip ticket
  • This list is not meant to be all-inclusive. Consular officials have the right to request additional information of anyone who applies for an Indonesia visa. Visas must be used within 90 days of being issued.

    Some regions in Indonesia cannot be visited with a visa alone. If you are traveling to one of these regions, you must obtain written permission. For the most current visa and other entry requirements, visit the website of the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia.

    Submitting Your Application

    After you have completed your application and gathered the supporting documentation, you can submit your application materials in person at the Indonesian Embassy or Consulate or by mail.

    Applications submitted by mail must include a prepaid, self-addressed Express Mail return envelope from the U.S. Postal Service. Return envelopes from other mail services will not be accepted.

    Processing time for Indonesia visa applications submitted in person is three days or longer, and processing time for applications submitted by mail is five days or more.


    Visa fees vary based on the type of visa for which you are applying. All visa fees are payable by money order from the U.S. Postal Service, company check or cash if applying in person. Other forms of payment, including credit cards, debit cards or personal checks will not be accepted.
