Holidays in Indonesia: Entry via e-Visa-on-Arrival is now possible, making it significantly easier for foreign tourists from 25 countries to enter via Bali and Jakarta airports.
Since November 10, 2022, tourists from Germany, Switzerland, Denmark and some other countries have been able to enter Indonesia using an e-Visa-on-Arrival. However, for the time being only via the two international airports in Jakarta and Bali. Nevertheless, the innovation is a great advantage, and most holidaymakers from Germany have either Bali (or the surrounding islands) or the capital Jakarta as their destination anyway. As has been the case in many other countries for some years, the electronic visa can now be conveniently applied for online and paid for by credit card. Long queues on arrival in Bali will probably be a thing of the past. Or when you arrive in Jakarta. On the other hand, if you enter Indonesia at another airport, you cannot (yet) use the electronic visa.
Otherwise there are few surprises with the newly introduced e-Visa-on-Arrival (eVOA). Anyone who has already applied for an electronic visa online will not encounter any problems with the visa for Indonesia. The passport must be valid for at least 6 months, you need an e-mail address and a valid credit card for the payment of around 30 euros. Application and payment is made through a secured government website. Oh yes, proof of an existing return flight ticket or a ticket for an onward flight to another country must of course also be attached.
Tourists can stay in Indonesia for up to 30 days with the electronic visa, but it can also be requested for business trips.
