The Indonesian government transitioned to a new e-visa website for all future visa applications.

‌Key Points:

  • The previous electronic visa application system service has transferred to a new website.
  • The new platform is designed to simplify the visa application process and attract more tourists and business interests.

Additional Information: The government launched a new electronic visa on arrival (e-VOA) platform in 2022. The e-VOA is designed for foreign nationals to complete applications pre-departure or during transit and includes online payment options. The government is undertaking measures to create more accessible visa application options.

BAL Analysis: The new website should benefit employees and employers by simplifying and expediting the visa process. Employers should re-register their existing online account into the new system as soon as possible. Visa processing delays may occur initially due to the transition to the new website.
