(3/21/2005)

Despite a long-standing promise to announce revisions in the visa-on-arrival policy by late February, indications ate that changes are coming - even if the actual date of the promised changes remains elusive.

The State Minister for Culture and Tourism, Jero Wacik, was recently quoted in the Indonesian-language Bisnis Indonesia as saying that:

• 16 new countries will soon be added to the current list of countries eligible to purchase a visa upon landing at an international airport in Indonesia.

• Those countries from outside of ASEAN who currently enjoy visa-free visits to Indonesia on the basis of reciprocity will likely lose their special status, with only ASEAN citizens continuing to enjoy the privilege of the visa-free visits. Short on details, the Government is claiming the curtailment of the reciprocity approach to visas has been made necessary by "security considerations."

• Among those nations reported to soon be added to the purchasable visa-on-arrival facility are the Netherlands, Austria, Ireland, China, India, Kuwait and Egypt.

• The new policy will reportedly extend the 3-day validity period of the $US10 visa to one week and the 30-day US$25 visa to 60-days.

The Minister was unclear in his comments as to when the promised changes in the visa policy will actually be introduced.

The Minister of Culture and Tourism also repeated his promise that additional immigration booth would soon be operational at major gateways to speed visa processing procedures.

balidiscovery.com will immediately publish any changes in the visa policy as they are formally introduced by the Government.
