Everything You Should Know About the Indonesia Tourist Visa

If you wish to explore the beauties of the Emerald of the Equator, you should find out whether you need an Indonesian tourist visa. DoNotPay provides valuable info on current travel requirements for this country.

Can You Get a Tourist Visa for Indonesia During the COVID-19 Pandemic?

The Indonesian government does not issue typical tourist visas during the COVID-19 global pandemic, and current rules will be implemented until further notice. Here is what you should know:


  • The Indonesian government is suspending the visit visa exemption (Free Visa) and visa on arrival regime for the time being
  • Multiple visit visas are also not available during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • You will need visa approval from the Directorate General of Immigration of Indonesia to obtain an Indonesian visit visa or limited stay visa
  • Visitor and limited-stay visas will only be issued to tourists in specific situations during the pandemic, such as a family reunion or retirement travel

Unless you need to go to Indonesia, it’s wiser to wait for better times to have a trip you’ve always dreamed of.

How To Apply for an Indonesian Visa During the COVID-19 Pandemic

If the Directorate General of Immigration of Indonesia approves your visa, you can obtain the electronic visa or e-visa. You will need to:

  1. Visit the visa-approval page
  2. Fill out the form with the required information
  3. Submit your application

You should always check for any updates regarding the travel requirements before your trip because the situation can easily change.
