3. Single Trip Visa

To obtain a single entry visa, formerly visa social cultural (sosial budaya), you need to have a sponsor who applies this Visa for you from Indonesia and then you need to send your passport to the Embassy of Indonesia in your country to get your visa stamped on your passport. The initial cost is USD 50 excluding the wire-fee paid by your sponsor (IDR 100,000). It will grant you 60 days of the first stay and then you can extend up to four times with maximum duration of stay of 180 days. Extension cost USD 35/extension.

The extension of this visa needs to be done in the same immigration district of your sponsor, so for example if you have sponsor with identity card (KTP/KITAS) registered in Jakarta, you need to extend the Visa in Jakarta immigration office.

4. Multi-Trip Visa

Multiple trip visa validity is one year with maximum duration of stay of 60 days only. It will cost you USD 110 and you can obtain it at the Embassy of Indonesia in your country. When applying for this visa, you also need a sponsor.

You may check the list of immigration office (kantor imigrasi) for each district/province on following official link from Indonesian Immigration here.

Once you get your visa stamp, it is highly advisable that you respect the validity and the maximum stay. Overstay will lead you to pay IDR 200,000 per day before being deported and it is not nice to be deported, no?
