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

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 90days. 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 USD 50-60.

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 else do I need to know beforehand? What could go wrong? What are your terms and conditions?

We live in uncertain times, and rules and regulations can change unfortunately quickly, which is beyond control. So here are two main risks when applying for a visa and planning your trip to Bali.

The government could technically change the regulations any day, and deny the arrival of anybody coming to Indonesia, even if they have a valid visa. Also, the immigration can deny your application, without giving any reasons, this happens extremely rarely, but it is heard of. 

Therefore please check our terms and conditions before you apply:

  1. Once the visa application is in process, it cannot be cancelled, and no refund of the fee can be granted (no refund provided).
  2. Only once you completed the payment, we can start to process of your visa application with the immigration officials. 
  3. The immigration has the right to decline your application without giving any reason. In such as case no refund can be given.
  4. We adhere to Indonesian immigration rules and regulations. We are not responsible if there is any sudden changes published by the immigration, which may cause a delay or rejection for your application or entry into the country(no refund policy).
