foreign visa

The Ministry of Law and Human Rights of the Republic of Indonesia ( Kemenkumham RI ) has decided to temporarily suspend the visa-free visit policy ( BVK ) for 159 countries, as stated in the recently approved Minister of Law and Human Rights of the Republic of Indonesia Decision Number M.HH-GR.01.07 of 2023 on June 7, 2023.

According to Anggiat Napitupulu, the Head of the Regional Office of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights in Bali Province, Kemenkumham RI has confirmed the temporary suspension of the visa-free visit policy.

He clarified that the “visa-free” policy had already ceased to exist since March 2020, although protocols were followed at that time to ensure the implementation of national and international health regulations due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Initially, the BVK was granted to 169 countries before the Covid-19 pandemic, but various regulations were subsequently introduced to restrict both inbound and outbound movements of individuals to and from Indonesia, resulting in the limitation of foreign visitors and the absence of flights.

However, as the Covid-19 situation improved in March 2020, foreigners were gradually permitted to enter Indonesia through the visa on arrival (VoA) and visa-free facilities, specifically for the 10 ASEAN countries.

Anggiat further explained that circulars were issued, and as the conditions continued to improve, more countries were granted the visa on arrival privilege. By April 2023, a total of 92 countries were eligible for the visa on arrival facility. Consequently, this reinforced the notion that the visa-free facility was no longer in effect.

It should be noted that the previously mentioned 159 countries were originally part of the 169 countries listed in Presidential Regulation (PP) Number 21 of 2016, which granted visa-free visits along with the 10 ASEAN countries.

This new regulation serves to reiterate that the visa-free facility, which was initially extended to 169 countries, has now been revised to apply to only 159 countries, while the visa-free privilege for the 10 ASEAN countries remains intact.

Anggiat emphasized that the visa-free facility still applies to the 10 ASEAN countries, while the other 159 countries are no longer eligible for this benefit. Additionally, he clarified the distinction between the visa-free visit policy and the visa on arrival system, emphasizing that the visa on arrival policy remains in effect.

In conclusion, the recent decision by Kemenkumham RI to temporarily suspend the visa-free visit policy for 159 countries has been made in accordance with the evolving circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic. This step reaffirms the government’s commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of its citizens and foreign visitors while regulating the entry and exit processes in Indonesia.

End of visa-free facility for 159 countries will not hurt tourism: Sandiaga

The tourism minister claims that Indonesian tourism will not suffer from the end of the visa-free facility for 159 countries because of the government’s paradigm shift to “quality tourism”, but an industry scholar disagrees.

End of visa-free facility for 159 countries will not hurt tourism: Sandiaga

he end of a facility that allowed visitors from dozens of countries to enter Indonesia without a visa will not hurt the tourist industry and will instead improve the quality of tourism, the tourism minister has said.

A Law and Human Rights Ministry Decree signed on June 7 has suspended the visa-free facility for 159 countries, though it remains in place for the country’s 10 ASEAN neighbors.

“The visa-free visits for those 159 countries turned out to be ineffective,” Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Uno said on Monday.

In 2016, the government issued a regulation that waived visa requirements for the nationals of 169 countries for short stays, but the exemption was temporarily suspended during the pandemic as it sought to curb the spread of COVID-19.

The visa-free facility was due to be reinstated now that the COVID-19 emergency and certain restrictions for cross-border travel have been lifted, but the facility was reinstated only for 10 ASEAN countries instead of all 169.

Visitors from 92 countries, however, are still eligible to apply for the visa-on-arrival (VOA) facility after arriving on Indonesian soil, which is relatively hassle-free compared to predeparture visa processes.

On 17 June 2023, Indonesia suspended the visa waiver for 159 countries. Travellers from these countries now have to apply for a visa for Indonesia. Travellers from some of these countries are eligible for an e-visa or VOA, while other travellers must apply for a visa through the embassy.

Indonesia changes visa rules

On 17 june 2023, Indonesia suspended visa-free travel for 159 countries. This is a temporary measure implemented to safeguard Indonesia’s public health. Citizens of only 10 countries are now allowed to travel visa-free to Indonesia. These are the ASEAN countries, namely members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nation (ASEAN): Brunei, Cambodia, the Philippines, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and East Timor. Travellers of other nationalities must apply for a visa to travel to Indonesia. The visa they can apply for depends on each traveller’s nationality.

E-visa, VOA or visa via embassy?

Travellers from 92 out of these 159 countries may apply for a Visa on Arrival . The same travellers may also apply for an e-visa for Indonesia, also known as e-VOA . Travellers who may not apply for an e-visa or VOA will have to apply for a visa via the embassy. The removal of several countries from the list of countries allowed to travel visa-free to Indonesia appears to be a temporary measure, but it is not clear if and when these countries will be re-added.

Reason for suspending visa-free travel

In an official statement, Indonesia's Ministry of Law and Human Rights claimed that the visa waiver policy was harming Indonesia’s public health and safety. Indeed, by admitting travellers from countries that suffer from diseases that are no longer present in Indonesia or that have not been declared clean of these diseases by the WHO, Indonesia’s public health has deteriorated. Thus, the visa-free admission of travellers from numerous countries is no longer in line with Indonesia’s needs in terms of safety and public health. For this reason, the number of countries allowed to travel visa-free to Indonesia has been reduced. Reducing the number of countries that can enter Indonesia without a visa is also expected to improve the country’s security.

Visa waiver might be restored for certain countries

It is not yet known if and when the countries in question will be able to travel visa-free to Indonesia again. The visa waiver might be re-introduced for some countries, but under certain conditions. Silmy Karim, director-general of immigration at the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, states that reciprocity is a key condition for countries to re-gain their visa waiver. In other words, Indonesian travellers should also be able to travel to the respective country visa-free.

Applying for the Indonesian visa

This decision made by the Indonesian government changes a lot for British travellers, since they will no longer be able to travel visa-free to Indonesia. Travellers from the UK will now have to apply for an Indonesian visa , namely an e-visa (e-VOA) or a Visa on Arrival .

Both visas allow stays of up to 30 days, which may be extended by 30 more days. If you have obtained either of these visas, you can stay in Indonesia for up to 60 days. However, your passport must still be valid for at least 6 months from the moment you quit Indonesia. You must also prove that you will leave the country after the maximum length of stay, by showing a ticket to another country.

As a result, it added, the number of policy recipients has been reset.

Currently, only 10 Asean countries, Brunei Darussalam, the Philippines, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, Timor-Leste, and Vietnam are exempted from the visa requirement, the newspaper reported.

Indonesia Suspends Visa-Free Entry For 159 Countries: What It Means For Bali Visitors

According to recent reports, Indonesia has made key changes in its visa-free policy. Approximately 159 nations have been suspended with only the exemption of 9 Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

The suspension is temporary and seeks to alleviate some concerns linked to disease transmission and disruptions in public order. Some of the exempted nations include Myanmar, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Philippines, Timor-Leste, Vietnam, Thailand and Laos.

The Ministry of Law and Human Rights issued the order, which was then reported by the English daily Bali Times. The order seeks to prevent disease transmissions from nations that are not certified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as disease-free.

Visitors coming from ASEAN nations are permitted stay in Indonesia for a period of 30 days with only a passport and a verified ticket of departure. If the visitors want to extend their stay in the country, they will be required to apply for Indonesia immigration visas like Visit Visa, Limited Stay Visa and e-VOA (Electronic Visa on Arrival).

indonesia visa free visit program (temporary suspended)

The government officials have not confirmed the length of the visa-free suspension. However, they have reported that they are open to reopening borders for international travelers; it’s still unclear when this will happen.

There have been concerns that the suspension will significantly affect Indonesia’s tourism industry which is still in the post-recovery stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. Visitors to Indonesia have been urged to confirm travel to the country before making any travel arrangements.

International travelers from the 159 countries are required to make visa applications and they can only be allowed entry to the archipelago once their visa documents are approved. It is possible that entry conditions to Indonesia will change and regular monitoring is essential.

Visitors from the ASEAN nations can familiarize themselves with the procedures related to visa applications if they are looking to extend their duration. The timely application will be key if they want their applications to go through.

Indonesia Pauses Visa-Free Policy, ASEAN Exempted

Indonesia Pauses Visa-Free Policy, ASEAN Exempted

Indonesia has temporarily suspended its visa-free visit policy for approximately 159 nations due to concerns regarding public order disruptions and the potential transmission of diseases, as reported by Anadolu citing local media on Sunday.

Ministry of Law and Human Rights Issues BVK Suspension

The Ministry of Law and Human Rights has issued an order to halt the visa-free visits policy (BVK). This means that citizens of countries that were previously eligible for visa-free visits to Indonesia will now need to obtain a visa before travelling to the country.

The following countries were previously eligible for visa-free visits to Indonesia:

  • New Zealand
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

In addition to the above countries, the suspension of the visa-free visits policy also affects 10 ASEAN nations:

  • Philippines

The Ministry of Law and Human Rights has not yet provided a reason for the suspension of the visa-free visits policy. However, the Bali Times has reported that the move may be due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19.

Reasons Behind the Decision

The decision to suspend the visa-free policy for 159 countries is based on two main reasons:

Public order disturbances: The government is concerned about the potential for public order disturbances caused by visitors from countries with a history of civil unrest or political instability.

Potential transmission of diseases: The government is also concerned about the potential for the transmission of diseases from visitors from countries that are not certified as disease-free by the World Health Organization (WHO).

The suspension of the visa-free policy is a temporary measure, and the government has stated that it will be reviewed periodically and updated accordingly.

In addition to the two main reasons mentioned above, there are a few other possible factors that may have contributed to the decision to suspend the visa-free policy:

Economic concerns: The government may be concerned about the potential for economic problems caused by an influx of foreign nationals, such as increased competition for jobs and resources.

Security concerns: The government may also be concerned about security threats posed by foreign nationals, such as terrorism or drug trafficking.

Political pressure: The government may be under pressure from domestic groups to restrict immigration.

It is important to note that these are just possible explanations for the decision to suspend the visa-free policy. The government has not officially released a statement explaining its reasoning.

Impact of the decision

The suspension of the visa-free policy is likely to have a significant impact on Indonesia, both economically and socially.

Economic impact

Tourism: Tourism is one of the most important sectors of the Indonesian economy, accounting for around 10% of GDP and employing millions of people. The suspension of the visa-free policy is likely to lead to a decrease in tourist arrivals, which will have a negative impact on the tourism industry and the wider economy.

Investment: The suspension of the visa-free policy could also deter foreign investment in Indonesia. Foreign investors may be less likely to invest in a country where it is more difficult for their employees and business partners to travel to and from the country.

Trade: The suspension of the visa-free policy could also have a negative impact on trade between Indonesia and the affected countries . It could be more difficult for businesses to send and receive employees and business partners, and it could also make it more difficult to transport goods and services.

Social impact

People-to-people ties: The suspension of the visa-free policy could also have a negative impact on people-to-people ties between Indonesia and the affected countries. It could make it more difficult for families and friends to visit each other, and it could also make it more difficult for students and academics to exchange ideas and collaborate on research.

Cultural exchange: The suspension of the visa-free policy could also have a negative impact on cultural exchange between Indonesia and the affected countries. It could make it more difficult for artists, performers, and athletes to travel to and from Indonesia, and it could also make it more difficult for people to learn about and experience Indonesian culture.

Exemption for 10 ASEAN Countries

The ASEAN Free Trade Area (AFTA) agreement allows the exemption of visa requirements for citizens of 10 ASEAN countries in Indonesia, promoting free movement and enhancing trade, investment, and cultural cooperation. This eases travel for individuals, saving time and money while fostering spontaneity.

Overall, the exemption of ASEAN citizens from the visa requirement in Indonesia is a positive development for both Indonesia and the other ASEAN countries. It promotes free movement within the region and has a number of benefits for both businesses and individuals.

Additional points:

  • The exemption of ASEAN citizens from the visa requirement in Indonesia is a reciprocal measure. This means that Indonesian citizens are also exempt from the visa requirement in all 10 ASEAN countries.
  • The exemption of ASEAN citizens from the visa requirement in Indonesia is a sign of the close ties between ASEAN countries.
  • The exemption is also a sign of Indonesia's commitment to regional integration.

Why has Indonesia suspended its visa-free visit policy for 159 countries?

Indonesia has suspended this policy due to concerns related to "public order disruptions and the potential transmission of diseases." The decision aims to address these issues.

Which Indonesian authority issued the order to halt the visa-free visit policy?

The Ministry of Law and Human Rights in Indonesia issued the order to suspend the visa-free visits policy, as reported by local media.

Were these 159 countries previously eligible for visa-free visits to Indonesia?

Yes, these countries were previously part of a group of 169 countries eligible for visa-free visits to Indonesia, along with 10 ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries.

What specific concerns are being addressed by this decision?

The decision is intended to address concerns related to both public order disruptions and the potential transmission of diseases, particularly from countries that are not certified as disease-free by the World Health Organization.

How have the exemptions changed as a result of this policy?

The exemptions now apply only to 10 ASEAN countries: Brunei Darussalam, the Philippines, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, Timor-Leste, and Vietnam. These nations still enjoy visa-free visits to Indonesia.

What is the duration of the stay for visitors from exempted ASEAN countries?

Visitors from these 10 ASEAN countries can stay in Indonesia for up to 30 days with a valid passport and a confirmed departure ticket.
