In accordance with Regulation of Ministry of Law and Human Rights Number 26 Year 2020 Indonesian Immigration replaced the Visa Sticker/Label which was previously stamped in the applicant’s passport at Indonesian Embassies/Consulates with E-Visa. Indonesian E-Visa is now issued in form of a PDF file and directly sent to the applicant and sponsor of the visa via E-mail upon approval. This procedure eliminates the hassle of visa stamping at Indonesian Embassy/Consulate amidst COVID-19 pandemic. Upon receiving the E-Visa applicant can directly travel to Indonesia within the validity of the E-Visa which is 90 days.
E-Visa will be issued with all kind of Indonesian visas which require approval from Directorate General of Immigration, namely:
- Social/Business visa (Index 211 & 212)
- Temporary Stay Permit/ITAS (Index 312-319)
During COVID-19 Pandemic the E-Visa will be categorized as:
- Onshore – Foreign Citizen currently in Indonesia
- Offshore – Foreign Citizen outside Indonesia.
