Visa On Arrival (VOA) Extension – Who is it for and what are the benefits?
When entering Indonesia with no prearranged Visa, there are 2 options when you arrive at the airport. One option is the free 30-day Visa on Arrival (non-extendable), the other is the paid 30-day Visa on Arrival (extendable).
If you have selected the paid Visa on Arrival ($37 USD) you can extend it; one time, for an additional 30 days.
You will need to start extending your visa 7 working days prior to the expiration date, which involves going to the immigration office in person. Please note that when attending the visa office, you must dress formally as to respect the culture. It is not uncommon for the immigration office to deny entrance based on clothing (or lack thereof).
Trips to the immigration office, can be time consuming and you may be required to do this over 3 trips. 1. To fill in forms (Please remember to bring a pen with black ink) 2. To pay for the visa, take photos and provide fingerprints 3. To pick up the passport.
To make your life simpler LetsMoveIndonesia can process this for you, eliminating the need to go to the Visa office 3 times. By using our service, you will only be required to go one time for photos and finger prints where you will be met by one of our colleagues who will be available on hand to help speed up the process.
