VOA queues nowadays are not that long generally and the process is quite simple when doing the process upon arrival.
Spending and additional $30 or 92.50 is quite excessive when often there is no queue depending on what time your flight is and which airport you arrive at. If you want to be organised and don’t mind spending the extra money which may or may not save you time, then this is okay, otherwise, we wouldn’t recommend spending the extra cash.
Please note, that this visa has a maximum validity of 60 days, 30 days upon arrival and a further 30 days if you choose to extend it. If you would like assistance with your extension, feel free to contact our team. If you plan to spend longer than 60 days in Indonesia, then maybe you would want to consider applying for a Single Entry Tourist Visa. Check out the link below to find out how to apply for one.
