Single Entry Visas (B211A) are back! Here’s everything you need to know! | LetsMoveIndonesia

Single Entry Visas (B211A) are back! Here’s everything you need to know!

On the 13th October an announcement was made by The Minister of Law and Human Rights of the Republic of Indonesia Number M.HH-03.GR.01.05 Year 2021 advising Single Entry Visas (B211A) would be available again of for shore applications.

Please note that the free visit visa, commonly known as the visa on arrival is still not available, so if you are planning on visiting Indonesia for tourist activities, then the B211A visa is the one for you!

Additionally, as of 15th October, despite the announcement being made, Indonesian Immigration still has not made it possible to apply for this visa using the Immigration Application Portal. We do not know why authorities released the news this visa is available without applying it to their application portal. Additionally, we do not know right now when we will be able to submit applications – hopefully soon!

How the Single Entry Visa (B211A) visa works

The visa works much in the same way as the Single Entry Business Visa, in the fact when you arrive in Indonesia you are permitted a 60 day visit with the option to extend the visa again up to 4 times, each time providing a further 30 days. In total the maximum validity of the Single Entry Visa is 6 months.

This visa requires a sponsor, whether that be a company or an individual. We will list the requirements further below for both entities.

Please note, that if you chose to extend your visa after the initial 60 days, you sponsor must assist you.

Activities permitted with the Single Entry Visa (B211A):

  1. Tourism
  2. Visit family
  3. Social activities

  5. Duties of government

Important Notes & Common Questions

Can I work using this visa?

This visa does not allow you to work in Indonesia or earn any income. Failure to do so, could result in fines and deportation.

Using this visa, can I enter Jakarta?

Presently, this visa type is only allowed to enter 2 official international ports: Bali & Riau. Presently it would appear you cannot fly into Jakarta or Manado just yet.

Which nationalities can apply for this visa?

Not all nationalities can enter using this visa. On Friday 15th October, yet another announcement was made by SATGAS (Satuan Tugas Penanganan) advising of a list which includes 19 Countries that can apply for the tourist visa. Below is the official announcement and the list of countries:

Can I fly into any airport in Indonesia using this visa? 

From the recent circular, they advised tourists using this visa could only fly into 2 international airports, Bali & Riau. Will this change? We assume so, but it depends on the authorities.

Is Bali or Riau actually accepting flights yet?

The airports do not seem to actually be officially open/receiving international flights yet. We do not know when they will actually receive flights.

Do I need to quarantine?

You are subject to quarantine yes. On the 13th October another announcement was made reducing the number of quarantine days from 8 – 5. This is applicable to all nationalities, check out our article on this below:

Indonesia reduces quarantine to 5 days effective immediately!

Where can I quarantine?

Once again, no official list has been released for Bali or Riau although Bali airport did make a list recently; however, we cannot confirm if this is approved by the government and still credible. When the government actually releases full information we will update this article.

Can I apply now?

As of Friday 15th October there is still no way to apply for this visa. Unfortunately, Indonesian authorities have a habit of releasing news and not implementing the actual protocols. When will this be ready? We do not know, lets hope soon.
