Hi,
If you are going to be travelling to Indonesia and want to spend about 6 weeks there you will need to apply for a 60 day visa in your country or you can get one in Penang, easy-can do by yourself-170 RM ( make sure you have a photocopy of first page of your passport- a new rule recently.)Singapore, easy can do by yourself or get Hana Express agents to get for you, Kuala Lumpur(difficult from what I hear) and Bangkok.
Visa On Arrival is for only 30 days-$25US but not extendable under any circumstances.
Send me a PM if you want all the details of times etc for Penang and I have info' re doing it yourself in Singapore.
