Procedure and Applications

Posted on by


  1. Applicants must hold a full passport which must be submitted upon request for inspection when applying for a visa.
  2. Passport must be valid for at least 6 (six) months from date of entry into Indonesia.
  3. Non-passport documents (such as Travel Documents, Certificate of Identity, Certificate of Registration, etc.) will not be accepted. Visas on British Travel Documents in Lieu of Passports can only be issued upon approval from the Immigration Authority in Indonesia.
  4.  Applicants should fill in the correct visa forms according to the purpose of their visit, as once a visa is issued (stamped in the applicant’s passport), it cannot be cancelled or transferred to another type of visa under any circumstances.
  5. Please write clearly in capital block letters. Illegibility may prevent your application from being processed.
  6. All questions must be answered, and all documents in support of an application submitted. Failure to do so may result in delay.
  7. Application forms must be original and personally signed by the applicant. Forms downloaded from the Embassy’s website must be printed double-sided as only a double-sided completed application is accepted.
  8. One recent passport-sized colour photograph of the applicant must be submitted with the application.
  9. All applications are subject to approval. Submission of a visa application does not necessarily mean that a visa will be granted.
  10. Applicants whose applications need referral to the Authorities in Indonesia should NOT purchase their travel tickets (plane, boat or otherwise) before the approval for their visa application is received.
  11. All visa applications must be submitted between 09.30am and 12.30pm on Monday to Thursday and between 09.30am and 12.00pm on Friday (except on Indonesian and British public holidays) through the Visa Section of the Indonesian Embassy at 30 Great Peter Street, London SW1P 2BU.
  12. If granted, visa can be collected within three to six working days, between 2.30pm and 4.00pm.
  13. The granting of a visa is, in effect, only a form of pre-entry clearance. It does not grant permission to enter Indonesia. The Indonesian Immigration authorities at the port of entry reserve the right to refuse entry into Indonesia.
  14. All applicants must reside in UK / Ireland.
  15. All visa regulations are strictly adhered to for the good of each and every individual who wishes to visit Indonesia, in order to prevent any problems and complications with regard to their entry into Indonesia.
  16. Due to the fact that Indonesia and Israel do not, at present, share diplomatic relations, nationals and passport holders of Israel are unfortunately unable to enter the Republic of Indonesia as a tourist or otherwise without special authorisation from the Immigration Office. Therefore, all such applications have to be sent to the Immigration Office in Indonesia.
  17.  It is most desirous that any traveller to Indonesia understands and duly respects the Indonesian Immigration’s regulations as well as the Embassy’s rules.
