    I am an older guy from the you S living in Thailand for the last few years. I don't live in BKK but get there on a regular basis for a bit of enjoyment.

    Posting here instead of the BKK forum as I am planning a trip to Indonesia in a couple of months and am sure I will have some questions as the time gets closer.

    I know the proper etiquette says to post a couple of trip reports before asking specific questions. However having never been to Indonesia no reports to post but can post a bit about.

    Thailand if anyone is interested or should I just post in the BKK forum.

    Regards
    Yes you should post in the BKK forum. At least get something down. Incidentally most of us are older guys, although that is a very subjective term. I'm 50 to give you a benchmark.

    The USD 15 (until recently USD 10) s / t visa is only available for certain locations such as Bintan or Batam Islands. For Jakarta and Bali you need to bite the bullet and buy the 30 day one.

    Jakarta. The Indonesian immigration office on Wednesday announced an increase in fees for some of its services, including visa-on-arrival application fees for foreign nationals and new passports for Indonesians.

    "The price for immigration charged on the public will change starting July 3, 2014, in line with the issuance of the 2014 government regulation. On the types of non-tax revenues and the tariffs imposed on them as regulated by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights," the immigration office said in a statement signed by its spokesman Heriyanto.

    The price for a seven-day visa-on-arrival has been set to $15 from the initial $10, while the price for a 30-day visa-on-arrival will be increased to $35 from the initial $25.

    There's a way around this

    Good luck all.
    I've been turned away myself after doing the visa run thing 5 months in a row with the normal Visa-on-Arrival + 30-day extension. It's worth noting though that I am still in my early 20s and they may have a bigger reason to suspect I am working than a 50 year old.

    Some guys go from one country to another to evade this issue. But I like to keep my base in one country only.

    Fortunately I did find an agent in Jakarta who got me a bogus KITAS with 12 months validity renewable once every year and I've not had any trouble with the immigration guys since then. It's not cheap though but it gives me peace of mind I won't be refused entry.

    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.
    Thanks for posting this for the guys. However VOA's are easily and legally extendable, for another 30 days. A couple of things to take care of. Start the process about 10 days before it expires. Cost is 25 USD.

    It involves 2-3 trips to the immigration office so easier to pay a bit more and use an agent thus more time for mongering.

    In Bali you can often extend illegally for another month depending on your agent but cost rises.

    Also another possible trap, if you are doing the one day turn around you should hold an onward ticket back out because the immigration can and will turn you back on those grounds if they are suspicious that you are working.

    Good luck all.

    Most excellent summary Pete, thanks for offering the info. One final comment on the VOA.

    Garuda now offers VOA as an in-plane service on its popular international routes. I think SYD-DPS, SYD-CGK, Tokyo-CGK etc.

    All this does is saves you the line-up time at the airport, so saves an hour sometimes, an hour that could be better used for other purposes of course.

    Before I got my Kitas I flew Garuda purely for this purpose (well plus the hostesses are much better than Qantas old ugly women).

    This might help short-stay tourist mongers, makes immigration a breeze when you arrive.

    Cheers HHM.
