Questions & Answers

If I am travelling to Indonesia right now on a Single Entry Visa (B211) can I still enter Indonesia?

Yes, but the grace period is only until 23rd July.

How long will this last for?

It says it will apply during the national lockdown. The original end date was end of July, then a few days ago, they brought this forward to 25th July – pending the situation. It seems incredibly pointless to disrupt the foreign nationals from entering Indonesia for 4 days, so assume the lockdown will continue or there will be more updates.

UPDATE: On Sunday 25th July President Jokowi made an official announcement that the social restrictions  have been extended again until 2nd August. Single Entry Visas may still not enter Indonesia and applications for foreigners oversea are still closed.

Can I apply for any offshore visas at this time?

You cannot apply for any offshore visas at this time.

If I already have submitted my offshore visa application, will it still be processed?

It appears that visa applications will be on hold at this time, although we are still investigating this

If I have an E-VITAS, but not converted it to KITAS yet, may I still enter Indonesia?

Only KITAS & KITAP holders can enter Indonesia during PPKM. If you still hold E-VITAS, you are not permitted entry at this time.
