    Immigration, Visas & Work Permits.

    Among the most frustrating issues for foreigners of living in Indonesia are the obtaining and maintaining of visas and work permits.

    The amount of red tape and bureaucracy in involved in obtaining certain of these visas can be quite extraordinary.

    These are the most common types of visas currently available in Indonesia:

    &9702; Visa-On-Arrival (VOA)

    &9702; Tourist Visa

    &9702; Single Entry Social Visa (Sosbud)

    &9702; Single Entry Business Visa (Business)

    &9702; Multiple Entry Social Visa (MESV)

    &9702; Multiple Entry Business Visa (MEBV)

    &9702; Temporary Residence Visa (KITAS)

    &9702; Retirement Visas.

    &9702; Permanent Residence Visa (KITAP)

    Other specialised visas for diplomatic staff, NGOs, journalists and artists are also available.

    All of these visas have their own special requirements, however common to all of them is the requirement that passports have at least six month's validity past the expiry of the issued visa. Thus, a 12-month Temporary Residence Visa would require a validity of at least 18 months at the time of application.

    Laws, regulations, procedures and requirements for Indonesian visas and work permits change constantly. (You may wish to re-read that last sentence.) For qualified and up-to-date advice, consult a trusted and qualified agent that specializes in such matters.

    Visa-On-Arrival (VOA)

    As their name implies, Visa-On-Arrival (VOA) are issued directly upon arrival into Indonesia. They are mainly used by tourists.

    VOA can only be issued to citizens of the following countries:

    Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Canada, China, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Estonia, Fiji, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, India, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Laos, Lativa, Libya, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Maldives, Malta, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, Panama, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Suriname, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States.

    The VOA costs US$25 for a 30-day visa, and US$10 for a 7-day visa, which must be paid in cash.

    Having paid the fee for the visa, visitors can then proceed to a special immigration counter where passports will be stamped with the VOA. You may sometimes be asked to produce an onward or return trip ticket.

    It must always be remembered that a VOA cannot be extended under any circumstances. Before it expires, you must leave the country. Many people wanting to extend their visit to Indonesia simply get a cheap flight to Singapore and return to Indonesia often on the same day. There is no problem with Indonesian immigration authorities with you doing this, as long as they do not suspect that you are illegally working here.

    VOAs are only issued through these international gateways:

    By Air: Bali, Balikpapan, Jakarta, Kupang, Lombok, Medan, Makasar, Manado, Mataram, Padang, Pekanbaru, Solo, Sulawesi, Surabaya and Yogyakarta.

    By Sea: Batam, Bintan (Tanjung Uban) , Medan (Belawan) , Sumatra (Sibolga) , Dumai, Padang (Teluk Bayar) , Bali (Padang Bai) , Jayapura, Bitung, Semarang (Tanjung Mas) , Kupang (Tenau) , Pare Pare, Tanjung Pinang (Bintang Pura) and Makassar.

    Tourist Visa.

    Embassy-issued Tourist visas are valid for 60 days, and are not extendable.

    Citizens of countries that are not on the VOA or Visa Free lists are required to apply for a tourist visa at an Indonesian Embassy / Consulate before entry to Indonesia.

    Also, tourists from any country wanting to stay in Indonesia for longer than allowed by the VOA may also wish to consider this type of visa.

    Single Entry Social Visa (Sosbud)

    The Social Visa, or what was formally known in Indonesia as a sosial-budaya (social-cultural) visa, or sosbud, is issued for the purposes of:

    &9702; Visiting family members / relatives in Indonesia.

    &9702; Visiting social organization in the same field of endeavor.

    &9702; Exchange visits for education and training in Indonesia.

    &9702; To give a lecture or join a non-commercial seminar / conference in social, cultural or governmental fields, with permission of a related agency / institution / department.

    This visa is issued by an Indonesian embassy / consulate upon production of a letter from a sponsor from within Indonesia, and is for an initial period of 60 days upon entry. Unlike VOA or tourist visas, sosbud visas can be extended within the country. Four 30-day extensions can be obtained, giving a total possible stay of six months.

    Single Entry Business Visa (Business)

    Business visas are issued for the following purposes:

    &9702; To discuss matters within the framework of trade transactions.

    &9702; To make on the spot observations and to discuss trade terms for import-export business.

    &9702; Any business activity where person is not engaged as an employee.

    &9702; To attend international shows / exhibitions.

    &9702; To attend meetings held by a head office or representative in Indonesia.

    &9702; To discuss with Indonesian enterprises matters related to capital or commodity production by overseas enterprise.

    &9702; To investigate commercial possibilities within the framework of capital investment with prospective partners in Indonesia.

    &9702; To make a journalistic visit with the permission of a related agency / institution / department.

    &9702; To make a film for non-commercial purposes with the permission of a related institution.

    This visa is issued by an Indonesian embassy / consulate upon production of a letter from a sponsor from an Indonesian company, and is for an initial period of 60 days upon entry. Unlike VOA or tourist visas, sosbud visas can be extended within the country. Four 30-day extensions can be obtained, giving a total possible stay of six months.

    Multiple Entry Social Visa (MESV)

    Although Multiple Entry Social Visas are a theoretical possibility under current regulations, in the past year the immigration has made obtaining such visas difficult or impossible.

    Normally, they are valid for 12 months from the date of issuance at the embassy, and are for visits of a maximum 60 days duration.

    Visas such as these must be processed by the Immigration Office in Jakarta. Once processed. Usually taking three to five working days. A "telex" of the visa approval letter is sent to the Indonesian embassy where you wish to pick up the visa. You then take a copy of the telex, your passport and passport photos to the Indonesian embassy on the approval letter, where the pre-approved visa will be stamped into the passport. This process can take up to three working days, and from the Embassy varies from US$100 to US$150.

    Multiple Entry Business Visa (MEBV)

    Multiple Entry Business Visa (MEBV) are commonly used by people backwards and forwards doing business in Indonesia. It is strongly stressed that the MEBV does not entitle you to work in Indonesia. The term "work" is defined very broadly by immigration officials, thus great care should be taken when describing your activities while here. The word "work" should be temporarily expunged from your vocabulary.

    MEBV are valid for 12 months from the date of issuance at the embassy, and are for visits of maximum 60 days duration.

    Visas such as these must be processed by the Immigration Office in Jakarta. Once processed. Usually taking three to five working days. A "telex" of the visa approval letter is sent to the Indonesian embassy where you wish to pick up the visa. You then take a copy of the telex, your passport and passport photos to the Indonesian embassy on the approval letter, where the pre-approved visa will be stamped into the passport. This process can take up to three working days, and from the Embassy varies from US$100 to US$150.

    Thanks to the people at Okusi for assistance with this section.

Regardless of location in Indonesia. According to the Economists at the Sharia ministry, this should introduce 900 billion rupiah of new money to the economy next year.

    So If papasan or mamasan or that winsome looking girl in CJ's are quoting you some astronomical bule price. You just look for the nearest police post and they will be able to assist you with this. Just look for the green PSK priceaware sticker on the window that the ministry has printed up. It looks a little bit like a penis with a question mark around it.

    Hope that helps.

    OS,

    Unfortunately the economists just did another study and found that the injection of new money into the country will leave just as quickly as the girls buy new mobile phones and other assorted electronic devices. They are now suggesting that the amount be paid by purchasing local Indonesian goods as oleh oleh plus a balance as real taxi money. Oleh oleh in the form of imported goods will be deemed an incomplete and illegal transaction, even if accepted by the girls.

    Look for the nearest police post? Man you're evil. LOLOLOLOLOLOL followed by ROTFLMFAO.

    Hi Matthew 4004.

    Indonesia is now making a push to standardise prices, the Sharia police have recently been tasked with enforcing this.

    This means big savings for you, the punter. In the bad old days, when you were salivating over the apple of your eye in the fishbowl and papasan invented a number. You had to negotiate. Fortunately now. These things are standardised. Presidential decree number 46097/225 last week stated that bules, local's, Chinese, korean's and germans must now pay the gazetted PSK (sex worker) price of 450 000 per pop. Regardless of location in Indonesia. According to the Economists at the Sharia ministry, this should introduce 900 billion rupiah of new money to the economy next year.

    So in answer to your perceptive question. You now do not need to worry about minor details like price. It is standardised across the country. Even in the high end clubs like CJ's where you can buy quality English speaking aromatic pussy for the same price as a piece of rather beaten up pussy in Kalijodo. The Sharia ministry have advised police posts nationwide of this policy. So If papasan or mamasan or that winsome looking girl in CJ's are quoting you some astronomical bule price. You just look for the nearest police post and they will be able to assist you with this. Just look for the green PSK priceaware sticker on the window that the ministry has printed up. It looks a little bit like a penis with a question mark around it.

    The detractors of this project are saying in the media that it is socialising pussy. I will leave you to make up your own mind on this for you are obviously an intelligent fellow

    Anyway. Thanks for your valuable input, the sharia ministry monitor these pages and questions like yours are particularly helpful for them to guage public response. Please post more. I personally really appreciate these brave fighters for transparency at the Sharia ministry. That they would take a concept as old as mankind itself IE "I have a part of me that I want to put in a part of you and I am not thinking clearly just now because I want you so badly" and then strip all of the variables out of the market to standardise the price. Which for you now and inthe foreseeable future will be 450 000 RP. A great step forward.

    Hope that helps.

    Regards.

    Hi guys,

    From what I've read Jakarta seems to be more expensive for girls than Bali, would you agree?

    What about other big cities in Indonesia, how do they compare, what would the average price be for ST and LT?

    I'm pleasantly surprised to read your response. Good luck with your upcoming trip, look forward to reading some detailed posts of your experiences.

    A friendly comment for you and all newbies. New members will get more respect and more feedback if they post at least one informative report instead of just asking questions (assuming that they've mongered before and are not virgins).

    In your case, a report or two about your mongering experiences in Thailand would add a lot of credibility. For example, have you ever been to the Kangaroo Bar in Patpong? I went twice during the same evening (8 pm and again just before closing), around 15 years ago, and still have fun memories. Same girl both times, then I ended up treating her to a snack at the nearby McDonalds after the Patpong bars had closed down. She wanted to come back to my hotel with me, but at that point I was drained for the night and said no.

    I'm new here just joined in. I've been to Thailand several times but never to Indonesia. Just wanted to have a quick info reply and thanks for the reply I appreciate honestly. I'm sure I`ll come on this website frequently since very much interested in mongering travel around the world.

    RTFF! You don't need to read very far to discover that the Hotel Mulia (CJs) and Hotel Shanfrei-La (BATS) have busy night clubs inside of them, or that the Ambhara Hotel is located near the Blok M clubs on Jalan Fatahillah. A well-known disco / club in Bali is the Sky Garden in Kuta (and there are many others).

    Now start reading!

Well any kind of suggestions / ideas would be really appreciated since this is my first time to this country. Would like to know what are the best areas to stay for nightlife since I'm into discos mostly along with other girly activities. Would be nice to know which are the best discos at the moment with a good crowded atmosphere. I like to find nightlife areas for my hotel and obviously the hotel should be girl friendly. So that's about it and thanks in advance for any replies, much appreciated!

    I'll adjust my profile bro. Thanks for the tip. They might be attracted now because where else do one turns to to curhat than to a lansia? (wink)

    03. Ofcourse, one most always remember the very famous sentence of Richard Gere,"I pay woman NOT for the sex, but for leaving my hotel room".

    04. Just remember, always, that "You can take the girl out of the bar, but you can not take the bar-mentality out of the girl".

    05. Enjoy Indonesia, Land of Paradise, whilst you can.

    thanks Pete, for the encouraging words. Thing is, in real life I never have a problem. Hmm, I suppose in IC they don't know how charming I am.
