Jade,
There is an Indonesian Embassy here in Sydney at Maroubra.
Here are the details from a google search for you.
http://www.indonesianconsulatesydney.org.au/
and photo of buildinghttp://www.kjri-sydney.org/about.htm
I always get my 60 day visas from this consulate.
Quick trip out there, fill in forms, hand over two passport photos, passport, forms and money
and 3 working days later your visa is ready to pick up.

Hey pamela,

Cheers for this info, you are a star!! I will check that out this weekend.

Do you know if the 60 visa, is multi-entry? i.e. could i leave Indo after 30 days say, go to Singapore and then fly over to Borneo and entry on the original 60 day visa?

Thanks again.

JD.

Quoting jadeverell

What i was planning to do was to enter on a 30 day visa, see as much as possible then fly out to Singapore. I then planned to explore Singapore for a day or 2 before going over to Borneo and Sarawak - where i guess i would need another 30 day visa upon entry?

Is this possible? or do they limit the number of visas you can have over a certain time scale?

On the embassy and official tourism websites of Indonesia, there's no mention of limit of stay/visa like what Thailand used to have. So I guess it's fine for you to return after two days, pay the visa-on-arrival fee and get another 30 days.


Do you know if the 60 visa, is multi-entry? i.e. could i leave Indo after 30 days say, go to Singapore and then fly over to Borneo and entry on the original 60 day visa?

The visa is for single entry, but it's extendable.

Hi,

from Singapore you can fly to Kuching, Sarawak (Malaysia). Have a look at [snip] you can see all the low cost flights. You get 90 days on arrival for Malaysia. From there you can easily cross to Kalimatan (Indonesia Borneo) or proceed to Sabah (Malaysia Borneo) either per flight or by ferry to Sibu, bus to Miri, bus to Brunei, bus to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and from there to Indonesia or Philippines.

Have a good time.

Rudi

Hi Jade,

No you cannot fly out of the country half way through your 60 day visa and come back in to use the remainder. Once you leave it is finished.
You will need to return to Indonesia either with a new 60 day visa or get a 30 day Visa On Arrival at the airport.
A 30 DAY VOA is NOT extendable, but in some bigger cities one can extend a 60 day visa- but it is not 100% official and depending on the immigration you can pay more to get an extension than flyng out and getting a new 60 day visa and flying back.
In places like Manado in Sulawesi they charge about 2.5 million for an extension.
This is what was quoted on TT.

Well, you are "lucky" to get your visa extension in Bali fo "only" $100 for 30 days, up here in Manado I just paid Rp 2.5m (approx Australian $300) for 30 days. The attitude at immigration up here is, that if you don't like it, you can leave the country and come back! Knowing fair well that airfares, accommodation, plus the normal visa fee will work out to be more. Now with Air Asia flying into Manado, I am sure the fee will go down as a visa run works out cheaper.
