The thebalisun portal reports on the Indonesian government’s decision to launch a program for 5-year multiple-entry visas for visiting Indonesia.
The new visa is called D1, issued for a period of 5 years, allowing its holders to visit Indonesia multiple times for up to 60 days per trip.
The category of the new visa includes tourism, family visits, or transit. This visa does not permit employment or any work activities with local companies. The frequency with which a tourist can use the 60-day periods is not specified. In other words, it is currently unclear whether one can use this visa to come to Indonesia for two months, then briefly leave for another country, and return.
In any case, this visa is not intended for residing in the country. How much does the new visa cost? A multiple-entry visa to Indonesia with a validity of 5 years costs 15 million Indonesian rupiahs, which is approximately $960 USD based on the current exchange rate at the end of 2023.
You can apply for a visa to Indonesia online, and the visa fee can also be paid online on the official website https://molina.imigrasi.go.id/ This is the same website through which applications for visa on arrival or the “second home” program are submitted.
What documents are needed to obtain a long-term visa to Indonesia?
- Passport, valid for at least 6 months from the visa application date.
- Color photo.
- Proof of financial capability amounting to at least $2000 USD.
- Additional documents may include an invitation letter from friends, relatives in Indonesia, or organizations that can confirm the purpose of your visit.
If you do not have friends or relatives in Indonesia, corresponding invitation letters can be provided by relevant agencies in Indonesia, through which it is recommended to process such a visa. I would like to remind you that citizens of Ukraine can obtain a visa on arrival in Indonesia, the validity of which was resumed in May 2022. The cost of the visa on arrival is $30 USD.
