What is VOA (visa on arrival)
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, there were 2 ways to enter Indonesia as a tourist. One possibility was to enter without any type of visa, which allowed you to stay in Indonesia for a maximum of 30 days. The other possibility was to purchase a “VOA”. Currently, you can only enter Indonesia as a tourist with a VOA.
You do not have to apply for a VOA in advance. You can purchase a VOA upon arrival at any airport in Indonesia (Jakarta, Bali, etc.).
The VOA costs $35 and allows you to stay in the country for 30 days. It is possible to extend the VOA and stay in Indonesia for another 30 days, which would be a total of 60 days.
If you already know that you are going to stay in Indonesia for more than 30 days, I recommend going to a visa agency during your first week in the country, so that they can start processing your visa extension.
