The Indonesian government has reduced the extensions available for certain single-entry visit visas.

Key Points:

  • Single-entry visit visas, including business visas, which were issued before April 16 can now be extended one time for 60 days. Previously, such visas were extendable four times for 30 days per extension.
  • Single-entry visit visas that were issued after April 16 can no longer be extended.
  • Those who hold single-entry visit visas can apply for a new visa while in Indonesia instead of an extension.

Additional Information: The cost of the one-time 60-day extension for those who received a single-entry visit visa before April 16 will cost two million Indonesian Rupiah.

BAL Analysis: Foreign nationals who hold a single-entry visit visa issued after April 16 will have to apply for a new single-entry visit visa to extend their stay in Indonesia. Those eligible for the 60-day extension will have to apply for a new visa after the extension expires.
