Anyone got the extended 60 day Indo visa before ?
Is it true that you just pay Rp 500,000 at the kiosk before you hit immigration and they will grant the extension ? Or do you have to deal with a visa extension crew once you are inside Bali ?
I usually just do a visa run somewhere else but can’t be arsed this time.
I had it, and it did involve getting it extended as the end of the 30 days came up, though it was an easy enough affair to do in Bali, only an hour or so waiting each time. Was a few years ago now so it may have changed, but I do remember thinking that it was a lot easier and cheaper than flying in and out.
PS Thought I’d met you last time I was there . Obviously if your real name is Dan it wasn’t you. But the bio seemed to fit from what I’ve gleamed of your life from on here.
Why don’t you just get a 60 day visa before you leave Australia ? Costs $70 AUD and you don’t have to line up with everybody getting voa
Don’t have the time.
If you pay for VOA you can extend 30 days but you will need to go to immigration office in Denpasar or jimbaran , it requires you going 3 times and can be 2-6 hours each time or get a agent pay them 750,000 to for service and extension ,you may have to go once for fingerprints and photo , from memory VOA if paying is $35 USD and if you go to renew yourself 250,000 rp , there prices are always changing but if you value your time get a agent and just pay
Yeah , I’ve been told $50 VOA and then get an agent to do the paperwork for $80 and go to immigration for fingerprints. I just normally do the visa run.
Sounds shit , but what can you do ?
Got a cheap exit ticket to Singapore to appease immigration, but more than likely will be shooting on a sub- national mission which wouldnt have been much more expensive with a Singapore link regardless.
Whatever.....I just want my minimum two months in country.
I’d bolt to Japan for a look except it’d be fucking freezing and I’d rather get pitted than break my wrists on a snowboard.
Brunei would be a different visa run..stay a day or two...Royal Brunei Air out of DPS...
As much as I’m open to cultural diversity, Shariah law can suck my cock. Fuck those Muzzie supremacist shitbags.
Why would you when you can enjoy Borneo without the shitfight ?
There is always the option of a social visa get 60 days out of those and can extend i think to 90 days or maybe even longer, i think they are about $50USD little bit of a hassle as got to go to an Indonesia embassy.
I think you might need a Indo sponsor though, they dont do anything just has their name on it etc
Ive had them before probably do another this year, little bit of hassle but not that bad would work out cheaper and less hassle than doing a visa run, and just free's up your trip for example if your somewhere remote and a swell is hitting last thing you want to do is waste time and money doing a visa run.
BTW. was less than an hour at Indo embassy last time i did it.
If you dont live in striking distance of a Indonesian Embassy in Oz though might not be an option though as think you need to actually go to the embassy but not 100%
Would all be online somewhere.
It sux big time that indo only gives 1 month voa , l can’t understand why they don’t give a 3 month voa like other countries. Indo is 4000klms long and that’s pretty hard to do in 1 month. Joko wants to open another 5 Bali’s for tourism but a 1 month visa even if its free doesn’t work in my opinion. I know they are worried about people abusing extended visa by working illegally ( mainly Chinese and Korea tour guides ) but if they seriously want to improve tourism they need a longer visa. There is plenty to see besides surf and 3 months would have people spending more money. I’ve had tourist , social and kitas visas in the past and think I’ve been photographed and fingerprinted about 15 times , I’ve always used agents as I value my time and going to office 3 days in a row to play the game is fucked.
I've gotten the 60 day visa from the Wellington Embassy a few times, but it's a wee while ago. Didn't have to do anything once in Indo.

1. Obtain a 30 day visa exemption when you arrive (commonly and incorrectly called a free VOA or free visa), maximum stay is 30 days. After that time, you must leave the country (no extension is possible).
2. Purchase a Visa on Arrival (VOA) which is valid for 30 days (IDR 500,000 or equivalent in foreign currency) and can be extended for another 30 days by visiting immigration office and paying for an extension OR by using an agent to apply for the extension. At the end of 60 days you must leave the country and start again, as this visa cannot be extended beyond 60 days.
3. Apply for a 60 day tourist visa or social visa in an embassy or consulate in another country. Near the end of your first 60 days in Indonesia, apply for the first of 4 x 30 day extensions, up to a total stay of 180 days. Both these visas can only be issued outside of Indonesia. The social visa requires a letter of sponsorship from an Indonesian citizen.
4. Apply for a multiple entry business visa in an embassy in another country. This visa is valid for 12 months in total, but maximum stay for each visit during the 12 months is 60 days. This visa requires a sponsorship letter from an business in Indonesia.
