Indonesia Expands Visa-on-Arrival Facility to 17 More Countries: Full List Here


The Visa on Arrival facility for Indonesia has returned in full, possibly the most significant change for foreign travel to Bali since the reopening of Ngurah Rai airport in February.

Jamaruli Manihuruk, the Head of the Bali Law and Human Rights Ministry, announced that the central government has resumed the VOA programme for a total of 60 qualifying countries.

This recent announcement adds 17 additional countries to the programme, which will begin on April 28, 2022. This is all part of the relaxation of Covid-19 travel restrictions and preparations for the hosting of the G20 Conference in November 2022.

Jamaruli Manihuruk said at a press conference that he thinks the changes to the visa on arrival programmes will “make it easier for delegates and participants to attend international events held in Bali.”

The visa on arrival programme is available to all visitors entering in Indonesia. Across Indonesia’s 17,000 islands, international passengers can access nine international airports, eleven seaports, and four cross-border entry sites.
