Indonesia Visa Requirements
British citizens visiting Indonesia for up to 30 days do not need a visa for their stay. If you travel to Indonesia without a visa, you cannot extend your stay or transfer to another type of visa. There are a number of passports where, if you enter through these ports, are visa-free: Bali, Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Lombok, Medan, Makassar and Manado.
For a list of all the airports, seaports and land border crossings for entering/exiting Indonesia under the visa waiver scheme, visit the website of the Indonesian Embassy in London or head to an Indonesian embassy. Here you can also receive more information about entry requirements.
If you intend to travel in Indonesia for more than 30 days, you need a visa and you can apply for one before your stay. You can also purchase a visa on arrival for $35 USD, or the equivalent in Indonesian rupiah. This type of visa is valid for 30 days. It can be extended once up to a maximum of 30 days with an application to an immigration office in Indonesia. The visa waiver scheme and visas on arrival are not available for British Overseas Citizens, British Subjects, or British Overseas Territory citizens.
If you’re travelling to Indonesia for journalistic purposes these options are also not available. Instead, you must apply for a visa ahead of your stay.
Passport Validity for Indonesia Travel
Your passport should be valid for at least six months from your date of departure from Indonesia. At least one double-page spread is required in your passport. On arrival, you may be asked to provide proof of your onward travel.
