Starting from November 9, 2022, electronic visas (e-VoA) have become available for citizens of 96 countries to apply for.
The cost of the e-VoA is 500,000 Indonesian Rupiah, plus a small fee for credit card payment.
Please note that there is only one official website for applying for the visa. Recently, there have been increasing cases of fraud through fake websites pretending to be official. Please carefully verify the website's address before applying for the visa.
You can find the link to the official website here.
The validity period of the e-VoA is 30 days, and it can be extended once for the same duration by visiting the immigration office.
According to the recommendations of the Indonesian Immigration Authority, you can submit your e-VoA application no less than 14 days and no later than 48 hours before your trip.
Detailed instructions for e-VoA registration
For your convenience, we have provided screenshots of each step. The credit card used to pay for the visa does not necessarily have to be in the traveler's name; you can seek assistance from friends. So, let's go to the Molina website.
Click "Apply" and get to the login page to your personal account.
If you don't have a personal account, you need to create one. To do this, click on "Create account" on the right at the very bottom of the page. Next, select the purpose of the visit - Tourism.
Then select the country that issued your passport.
In the next step, you'll be prompted to choose the type of visa. In your case, select "Visa on Arrival 30 days." If you want to know how to apply for a tourist visa for 60 days, you can find information in our article.
Click on Detail & Apply below.
The following page provides information about the visa, its cost and the possibility of extension. Click on Apply.
Next, you'll be directed to a page where you need to provide your personal information. Here, you'll need to upload the front page of your passport (the page with all your information and photo) by clicking on "Upload." The image should be clear, without glare, and in JPEG, JPG, or PNG format.
Some of the data will be filled in automatically, but we recommend double-checking everything carefully. You'll need to manually fill in the Birth Country and Phone Number fields.
Section "Photo" - here you need to upload your photo. It should be in color, in portrait style, with dimensions of 4 x 6 cm, a resolution of at least 400 x 600 pixels, and in JPEG, JPG, or PNG format. Click "Upload" and select the prepared photo.
Then enter the following information in the empty fields:
- Document Type: Select "Ordinary Passport."
- Document No.: Enter your passport number without the symbol "#" and without spaces.
- Date of Issue
- Date of Expiry
- Issuing Country
The next section is "Arrival Information":
- Mode of Transportation: Select the mode of transportation by which you arrived in Indonesia (AIR, SEA, LAND).
- Flight/Vessel Number: Enter the flight or vessel number of your arrival.
- Arrival Date: Specify the date of your arrival.
Next, you need to provide your address in Indonesia:
- Residence Type: Select the type of residence in Indonesia (house, hotel, villa, apartment, other).
- Address: Enter your address in Indonesia. You can copy this address from Google Maps. After entering the address and postal code, the other fields should fill in automatically. If they don't auto-fill, follow the instructions below.
- Postal Code.
- Province (most likely Bali for you).
- City, District, Village: It's more convenient to fill these based on the address you copied from Google Maps. For example, if your address is Jl. Bypass Ngurah Rai Jimbaran No.88A, Nusa Dua, Kec. Kuta Sel., Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, start from the end: 80361 is the postal code, Bali is the Province, Kab.Badung is the City, Kuta Selatan is the District, and Jimbaran is the Village. The Immigration Office field should fill in automatically.
Next, enter your email address and phone number. Below, agree to the terms and conditions by checking the box. Also, check the "I'm not a robot" box, and then click on Save.
Then, you will be directed to a page with your pre-filled data. Click on Submit. In the window that appears, you'll be asked whether you want to continue applying for the visa as a guest or as a registered user. If you are visiting for a couple of weeks and don't plan to apply for visas later, you can continue as a guest by clicking on "As Guest." If you plan to stay in Indonesia and will be applying for visas later, we recommend continuing with registration by clicking on "With Register." In our example, we will choose the second option. However, the only difference is that you will need to enter your email in the provided box, and below that, you'll need to create a password. The password should consist of a minimum of eight Latin letters, one capital letter, and at least one number.
Next, click on Submit. The "Success" message indicates that your account registration was successful. However, you still need to activate your account. To do this, go to the email address you provided during registration and click on "Activate" in the email sent by DIRECTORAT JENDERAL IMIGRASI. Now you can log in to your account, remembering to check the "I'm not a robot" box.
Next, you will be taken to a page with your details (similar to the registration process as a guest). Double-check all your information. Now, all that's left is to make the payment. Please note that you have 7 hours to complete the payment. Click on "Make a Payment" at the bottom left of the page.
Fill in your card details and click on the red button Bayar Sekarang.
We confirm the payment with an SMS code (here the window may be different – it depends on your bank).
Congratulations! The payment was successful.
Now, in your provided email, you will find three emails. Two of them will be payment confirmations, and the third one will contain your long-awaited visa! It's a good idea to print it out. At the Bali airport, look for the e-VoA sign and proceed to the designated passport control counters for electronic visa holders.
Now you can easily and very quickly apply for a visa.
We hope that our instructions will help you.
