Tourist Visa Free Facilities are valid for 30 days, are non-extendable and cannot be transferred into any other type of stay permit.
The visa exemption facility can be used for tourism, family visit, social visit, art and cultural, government duty, to deliver a speech or attend a seminar, international exhibition, meetings with head office or representative office in Indonesia, or transit.
Citizens from ASEAN countries (Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam), Timor-Leste and Papua New Guinea are entitled of visa exemption for 30 days.
Before departure, be sure you have all the necessary travel documents that you will need to bring along on your trip. It will also be wise if you are well aware of all the policies regarding immigration and visas to Indonesia from your home country to avoid all the unnecessary inconveniences.
Upon your arrival, you will need to complete a Custom Card before passing through Customs Passport Control. A passenger arrival card will be given to you during your flight; if not, cards are available in the arrival area. Customs prohibited restricted goods and bio security risk goods. After you’ve cleared passport control, you should collect your baggage and proceed through customs and bio security checks. In order to protect Indonesia and its environment, certain items are not allowed to be brought into the country.
