All About the Indonesia eVisa
Travelling to the Indonesian island of Bali? Or maybe you’re heading to Jakarta, the Republic’s capital and economic hub, to do business. Whatever your travel plans in Indonesia, you will first need to investigate if you require a visa to enter the country.
Many nationalities can travel visa-free to Bali and elsewhere in Indonesia, including Indians, Americans and Brits. This is provided you are visiting as a tourist.
For those visiting for business purposes, there is an eVisa available, and the government will be releasing more information about this soon. You will be able to apply for this directly from us using any internet-connected device. The nation’s economy is the largest in Southeast Asia and there are many opportunities available in this emerging market that those with an entrepreneurial mind can take advantage of.
On this page, we’ll guide you through how to apply for a business visa for Indonesia online and the supporting documents and information you need. Filling in our online form takes just a few minutes and you’ll receive your approved documentation straight to your email inbox!
We’ll also explain how to acquire an Indonesia tourist visa at the embassy if you’re heading here to hit the beaches, rather than on a business trip.

Indonesia Visa Application Process
Byevisa can help you apply for your Indonesia business visa today. This will enable you to visit the country to negotiate contracts and forge new partnerships, attend conferences and more.
To make your application, click ‘Apply Now’ to navigate to the form to enter your details. You will need to input some personal and passport details as well as the dates you intend to enter and exit the country. Applicants must provide evidence that they have sufficient funds to cover their stay.
Important: To obtain the electronic Indonesia business visa, you must have a letter from a guarantor (your Indonesian business contact). This could be someone from the company’s Board of Directors, or an authorised HRD (Human Resource Development) manager.
We run you through the full list of details to enter into the online form in our ‘Indonesia Visa Application Form and Documents’ section.
Once you have entered all your details, you must select your preferred processing speed.
We offer 3 different services depending on how soon you want to get down to business.
- Standard – your travel pass in 3-5 business days for 23.00 USD.
- Rapid – get it in 1-3 business days for 27.00 USD.
- Highly Rapid – in 1 business day for 30.00 USD.
You will then need to pay for your application using a debit/credit card or PayPal account and then sit back and relax while we process your eVisa!
The tourist pass is applied for via the government site. We will let you know if this changes as the Indonesian government is planning to introduce an electronic pass for tourists in the near future.
Indonesia Visa Requirements and Eligibility
To be eligible to apply for the business visa for Indonesia, there are specific requirements you must meet. The government is set to release more information about the eVisa in due course. We summarise the requirements for you below:
- You must be visiting the country for business purposes, like to negotiate, attend conferences or meet with partners but not to undertake employment.
- You must hold a passport valid for a minimum of 6 months.
- You must provide a bank statement in English (with a minimum amount of 1500 USD).
- You must show evidence of travel bookings.
Remember, this type of paperwork is not suitable for those looking to work here or undertake permanent employment in the country. You must visit the embassy to obtain travel authorisation for these purposes.
Similarly, if you aren’t visiting for business but are going on holiday to Bali or elsewhere in the country, then you may need to apply for a tourist pass (either Single or Multiple Entry) at the Indonesia embassy nearest to you. In some cases, a sponsor letter may be required.
Some nationalities are eligible for a VoA which can be obtained at the airport on entering the country. Other citizens can visit Indonesia without requiring travel authorisation; they just need an up-to-date passport. More on this below.
