Visa-on-arrival can be extended as of January 26 JAKARTA - Good news for travelers to Indonesia that did not pick up a visa on beforehand. The immigration office in Indonesia has announced yesterday that foreigners can extend their visa-on-arrival starting today. Visitors from a number of countries across the world are granted a visa-on-arrival which used to be valid for only 30 days, without the option to extend this, thus being forced out of the country to get a new visa.

The seven-day visa-on-arrival will be scrapped from today, so only the 30-day 25 US dollar visa-on-arrival remains available for those visiting the country. It is not known however what the guidelines for extension will be. Most likely those who want to extend their visa have to find a local Indonesian sponsor, as is a standard requirement for most extensions of other visa as well.

interesting that they scrapped the seven-day visa-on arrival...of course there is a solid financial reason behind it: even though more tourists are coming to indonesia, the average length of stay has been falling...so now they can truly cash in on those record arrivals, everybody will have to pay for the full visa!

I think we have to wait for further details about it...this news came out of the blue, so I doubt if even immigration offices know more about it at this time!

my friend has just returned from immigration office today 28 jan at bali airport and was told that the new rule only apply to visa issued after 26 jan, also you have to have a sponsor to get extend 30 days ?. Yesterday he called immigration in Denpasar office and was told you just go to the airport at 30 day limit and extend for thirty days. It is just all a joke as the ones who make the rules dont understand what they have made. tommorow will be another explanation i think. Emoticon: Stupid

the website of the belgian embassy has already been updated:

I quote:
'Entry conditions for Indonesia : changes
Visa On Arrival
VOA valid 7 days Removed to prevent your adress from being spammed. Click this to go to the user profile. 10 US$ has been abolished VOA valid 30 days Removed to prevent your adress from being spammed. Click this to go to the user profile. 25 US$ can be extended once for 30 days'

so apparently there will be only one extension allowed
