Indonesia Visa


  1. Thanks for much for this bit of information! Not only am I set for more than 30 days in Indonesia ???? but I got to skip multiple extremely long airport lines since I knew what I needed to do.

  2. Hi thanks for the information! We are going to Sumatra in a couple of days, and want to to go for 2 months. Do you think its possible to get a visa extension right away in medan? First couple of days of arival? Then we’re al set for our trip.

    1. Hi Dennis and Suuz!

      You are going to LOVE Indonesia – assuming you haven’t already been 🙂 We spent two months in Indo and could have stay for two more!

      As for the Visa extension in Sumatra, we’re not to sure on this one. When we were here in 2017, we focused our efforts on getting our extension in Yogyakarta or Denpasar, solely because we were not going to be in Sumatra long enough to get it taken care of. We definitely say if you have the time, it’s worth the try! Let us know how it goes and good luck!

    1. Hi Jose!

      We can’t answer questions specifically regarding KITAS visa as we ourselves have not gone through this process. If you want more information, we did a quick google search and found this blog post that has some useful information:

      In regards to a visa on arrival, it depends what country you are from. For instance, we’re from the USA and are eligible for a free 30-day visa on arrival for Indonesia. It’s best to check with ahead of your arrival to ensure you are compliant for whatever visa you are trying to get. Here is a link to what countries are eligible for a free visa on arrival:

      Good luck!

  4. Hi, we got 2 months visa from Bangkok, but we’re planning to stay longer, can we extension at Sarong? We didn’t applied for visa on arrival????

    1. Hi Brett,

      We’re assuming you’re from the UK based on your email address 🙂

      The UK is eligible for a free 30-day visa on arrival for Indonesia. If you are wanting to stay in Indonesia longer than 30 days you can apply for a visa head of your arrival or…

      1) pay a $35 entry fee and you can extend while in Indonesia (not sure where Sarong is or if visa extensions are a possibility there)
      2) Prior to your 30 day visa expiring, booking the cheapest round trip flight out of Indonesia so you when you fly back in, you’ll get another 30-day free visa on arrival.

      Hope this helps!!
