11 More Countries Slated for Visa on Arrival

Addition of 11 New Countries to 52 Currently Eligible for Visa-on-Arrivals on Hold Pending Formal Confirmation Announcement.

(4/16/2007) The Jakarta Post reports that Indonesian is preparing to include 11 new countries to the list of 52 countries currently eligible to purchase wither a 7 or 30-day visa on arrival. [See: Current Visa Policy for Indonesia]

The countries reported likely to be added to the list of visa-on-arrival countries are Algeria, the Czech Republic, Fiji, Latvia, Libya, Lithuania, Panama, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Tunisia.

A Word of Caution

Nationals of the listed countries should not assume a visa is automatically available upon arrival in Indonesia until a formal announcement is made by the Indonesian government. According to Foreign Ministry sources, the final introduction of the new visa facility for the 11 new countries remains pending until reciprocity issues between Indonesia and two countries on the list can be sorted out.

Similarly, earlier announcements by ranking Indonesian officials suggesting longer visa periods were in the offing have failed to materialize despite the passage of many months since the initial fanfare.

Nationals of those countries eligible for a visa-on-arrival can pay US$10 for a seven-day visa or US$25 for a thirty-day visa upon landing at a major gateway in Indonesia. Visas-on-arrival are non-extendable and the recipient must have at least six-month's validity remaining in his or her passport.
