If you would like to travel to Indonesia you will need to obtain an offshore B211 visa before you arrive. This is unless you:
- Have a resident visa, working KITAS or investor KITAS
- Plan to stay in Indonesia for less than 60 days AND are a citizen of one of the 72 countries that can apply for Visa on Arrival
If none of these applies to you, we can obtain your B211 visa with the following:
1. Colour photocopy of your passport
We will need 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:
- 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)
- the page with your key information on it (photo, name, DOB, passport number, etc.)
A formal passport-style photo.
3. Flight booking
We need details of your return flight booking.
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.) We suggest you make a flexible booking.
You will also need a return or onward flight booking showing you intend to leave Indonesia within 180 days of arriving. This can just be a booking, it doesn’t need to be a paid for ticket. It can be to any country.
4. Bank statement
Showing you have sufficient funds for your stay in Indonesia.
5. A Covid-19 vaccination certificate (completed doses) OR a letter from your doctor;
Needs to be a full dose vaccine. If you cannot take the vaccine we need a letter from your doctor stating the medical reason why you cannot have the vaccine.
6. Health insurance or Travel insurance
You will need to get appropriate health or travel insurance to cover your stay in Indonesia and ensure the policies cover COVID and at least USD 25,000 medical expenses. The easiest provider we have found is Safety Wing.
For the visa application process, we will need to know the name of your insurance provider and your policy number.
7. Declaration letter and statement
We have drafted a declaration for you that you simply need to fill in your details, sign and send us a copy of. You can download the letter here.

Process of arriving in Bali as a tourist in 2022 with the B211 visa
Once you arrive in Bali you will need to go to have your temperature checked and if it is above 37.5 degrees celsius you will need to take a PT-PCR test.
If it is below 37.5 you can go to the immigration counters for inspection of immigration and customs documents to enter Bali, Indonesia.
Next, you can pick up your baggage and proceed through customs.
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 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.
