For information, the free visa policy has been applied for a long time for fellow countries in the ASEAN region.

However, in 2020, the free visa, Visa on Arrival (VoA) and diplomatic visa-free policies were stopped due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Countries other than ASEAN still have to apply for a VoA when entering Indonesia

Meanwhile, Airlangga added, tourists from countries other than ASEAN countries are still implementing the Visa On Arrival policy. 

Tourists have to pay a tariff IDR 500,000 for a special tourist VoA, in accordance with Government Regulation No. 28 of 2019. 

In addition, prepare a passport that is still valid for at least six months, return tickets or tickets to continue traveling to other countries, as well as other documents required by the Covid-19 Task Force.
