OFFSHORE indonesia B211 VISA - Regulation Updates Explained FAQs

1. Colour photocopy of your passport

We will need several photocopies of the key pages of your passport. This can also be a well-taken photo, rather than a photocopy.

We need a picture clearly showing:

  1. the front & back cover of your passport (open your passport and place inside pages facing down so the image shows the front and back cover in one)
  2. the page with your key information on it (photo, name, DOB, passport number, etc.)
  3. the page with stamps from your last visit to Indonesia, if you have them


2. Bank statement showing sufficient funds

We will need a copy of your bank statement. This can be a picture or scan of your paper statement, a downloaded version from online banking, or a screenshot from online banking.

It needs to show your name on the account and that you have at least USD 1,500 in your account.

The bank can be based in any country, even if it is not your home country.

If the application is being made for someone under 18 years old, we can use the statement of the parent.


3. Flight booking

We need details of your flight booking to enter Indonesia for the visa application process.

We suggest you book your flight at least 14 days from when you have sent us all your documents and the fee (so we will have everything ready to submit your visa application.)

You can book your flight all the way to Bali, or to Jakarta then get a domestic flight to Bali.

Many airlines have additional requirements at this time. We have detailed them below. Please print everything out and have it with you when you travel.

You are required to do 8 days quarantine in Jakarta. There are a selection of hotels to chose from for your quarantine. Please contact us for the up to date list.

2. Negative COVID test result

This is needed by airlines and Indonesian immigration. It needs to be a PCR test and has to be done within 7 days of when you will land in Indonesia.

3. Fit to fly letter

Many airlines are asking for a ‘fit to fly’ letter in addition to a negative COVID test result. You’ll need to contact your airline in advance to check their regulations and requirements.

4. Onwards flight

Like before COVID, many airlines will check you have an onward flight when checking you in, to ensure you don’t overstay your visa. These don’t have to be a return ticket, just one showing a journey outside of Indonesia. Make sure it is within 180 days of you landing in Indonesia. It may be fitting for you to get a flexible or refundable ticket.

Key Facts about the B211 Visa

The initial visa validity is 60 days.

You can then extend the visa 4 x for 30 days each time, so the maximum visa validity is 180 days (these days include the day you land and leave.)

Each extension needs to be applied for at least 4 business days before your visa validity expires and costs IDR 800k.

If you leave Indonesia before your visa is expired, your visa will be voided and you will have to get a new one if you wish to return to Indonesia.

For the first extension, you will need to go to the immigration office to get fingerprinted and photographed. We have an agent at the office to who will meet you and guide you through the process quickly.

After the first extension, all you will need to do is give us your passport and we will manage your future extensions for you.

You cannot work in Indonesia using this visa. If you would like to know more about living and working in Indonesia, do get in touch and we’ll talk you through the options.
