New Indonesia Visa Updates 2024: Website, Index and More

Effective 9th January, 2024, the Indonesian government implemented a brand new visa system that requires all visa applications to be submitted online. This change introduces new visa codes for different visa sub-types, which will be used by immigration authorities and appear on issued visas. For example, the former B211 A/B visa is now known as the Business Visa, while the B213 visa has become the Visa-on-Arrival.

While transitioning to the new system, foreign nationals and employers should expect delays of approximately five business days in visa adjudication during the first week. This temporary processing lag is understandable as authorities adapt to the updated online platform.

 

What are the key changes in Indonesian visa regulations?

  • New visa codes: All visa sub-types now have new codes for clear identification and processing.
  • Revised visa types and durations: New types of visas and lengths of stay have been introduced for tourism and business needs.
  • Golden Visa program: A new “Golden Visa” (ITAS) option is available for retirees and investors, offering extended stays of up to 10 years.
  • EVOA updates: Visa-on-Arrival (EVOA) now comes in two categories: Tourist and Business.

Here is a breakdown of the specific changes:

  • Single-Entry visa:

    • Tourist Visa (60-180 days): Transferred from B211A to the new 211A index.
    • Business Single-Entry visa: Now has the index C2.
  • Multiple-Entry visa:

    • Tourist Multiple-Entry visa: Now has the index D1.
    • Business Multiple-Entry visa: Now has the index D2.
  • Retirement Golden Visa (E33E):

    • Available for those aged 60 and above, offering a 5-year stay with the possibility of extension.
    • Requires a deposit of at least USD 50,000 in a government bank.
  • Investment Golden Visa (E28B/C):

    • Available for investors starting companies or purchasing bonds/shares.
    • Investment amounts range from USD 350,000 to USD 5 million, with corresponding stay durations of 5-10 years.
    • Purchasing property worth USD 1 million also qualifies for a 10-year stay.
  • EVOA:

    • Now categorized as Tourist (B1) and Business (B2).
    • Still limited to 97 eligible countries with a 30-day validity period.

Moving forward, all visa applications must be submitted through the official online platform: evisa.imigrasi.go.id. Remember the temporary processing delays during the initial transition period.
