Wisma Bahasa

VoA (Visa on Arrival)

A STUDENT VISA is not required to take a short-term language course or training in Indonesia. Indonesia only issues STUDENT VISAS to foreigners registered as full-time students at Indonesian universities.

Students enrolled in short-term educational programs (less than 60 days) such as Indonesian language course in Wisma Bahasa are welcome to study under a 30-DAY VISA-ON-ARRIVAL (VoA) or 60-DAY TOURIST VISA. For visits of 30 days or less, foreigners DO NOT need to make advance arrangements to visit Indonesia. Upon arrival at Indonesian airport or seaport (or another official gateway in Indonesia), a 30-day VISA-ON-ARRIVAL (VoA) is available to many countries (see the list below). Then, simply follow the signs to the VISA DESK, where your 30-Day VISA-ON-ARRIVAL will be issued. At the VISA DESK, you will be asked:

  • A PASSPORT; The Passport must be valid for a minimum of 6 months from your date of arrival in Indonesia. The Passport must contain at least one blank visa page.
  • A RETURN (OR ONWARD) AIRLINE TICKET; with a departure date within 30 days of your arrival in Indonesia.
  • THE FEE FOR THE VoA; Visa Approval Telex to Indonesia Embassy/Consulates Rp 100.000 and Visit Visa on Arrival USD 35.00**
