What e-Visa am I applying for and how long is it valid for?

You are applying for a VISIT VISA – type BUSINESS VISA with the code B211A. SInce you are applying from outside of Indonesia it’s often also called OFFSHORE Business Visa (not its official name), while any visa now issued while visitors are already in Indonesia are called ONSHORE Visas.

It’s a Single entry e-VISA for the purpose of

  • Humanitarian activities
  • Volunteering
  • Family reunion
  • Business or Investment visit
  • attending trainings, seminars, workshops, exhibitions or meetings 

Even though the visa is called a business visa, it’s NOT A WORK PERMIT and does not entitle you to take or have a job in Indonesia, that pays you a salary or provides an income.

You can however have business meetings, do networking, explore investment opportunities, sourcing products…and of course, chill at the pool or beach.

After the e-Visa is issued, you need to arrive in Indonesia latest within 90 days. Otherwise it will be void. The initial visa is valid for 60 days (count the days including your day of arrival and day of departure).

EXTENSION:

This Visa can be extended four times for 30 days each while you remain here on the island. The you can purchase the extensions also here on Bali.com soon. The expected cost per extension will be around IDR 1,000,000.

There is another VISIT VISA which is called SOCIAL VISA (Visa Budaya), which is very common and very similar, but cannot be issued these days.

What documents do I need?

Actually you don’t need much.

  • scan of your passport cover (yes, cover!)
  • scan of your main passport page (the one with the photo)
