Hi Again,
Please be careful with agents- check the price because sometimes it will be cheaper to fly out and get a new 60 days visa and return to Indonesia.
Travellers like derekinasia did it himself and it only cost 250,000 rupiah- that is the legal price.

I hope to return in May next year and I will probably try for at least one extension and then probably then fly out and get a new 60 day visa and another extension so I can stay at least 6 months.

So Hien, are you able to supply any more info regarding this visa extension? or is it just a case of visiting an agent and paying the fee? how did you come to hear of it?

It's here:

Visa - Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia, Kuala Lumpur

As I understand it, that 60 day extendable visa (the "Visit Visa") is only applicable to visitors from countries which are not on the list of 49 countries that qualify under the terms of the Visa Waiver program. Or at least, that's what it says here

However, bearing in mind the level of corruption in Indonesia, it wouldn't surprise me if you could pay somebody to look the other way when you apply for an extension.

Do bear in mind though that you'll have to change the date of your return flight which, if you're travelling Economy, will add £90 to the cost of the ticket.

Excerpt from the visa information page of the Indonesian Embassy in KL:

Visa-on-arrival
... Visa on arrivals can be obtained for nationals of these countries:

Tourist Visa
A Visit Visa shall be issued to a foreign national to visit Indonesia for the purpose of...



Note that the 60-day Tourist Visa (Visit Visa), only available from the Indonesian Embassy, is a regular visa for anyone who wants to visit the country. The 7- or 30-day Visa-On-Arrival is just a special service provided to the nationals of the selected 52 countries. They still have to apply for the visa when they arrive at the border. The only difference is that they get instant approval if they meet the requirements and pay the fee. There is nowhere on the page that says nationals from these 52 countries do not qualify for a regular 60-day Tourist Visa that's available from the embassy.

OK, then murphc will be our guinea pig then. If we don't hear from you in three months time murph, we'll know you're languishing in some Indo jail somewhere sucking on something other than a Pina Colada.

Thanks for that Pamela.

It's very hard to find any info on the visa extension let alone getting the visa! so like you said I can imagine it being a nightmare. Bali is my second stop after a month in thailand and 2 weeks in loas so if I apply for the visa a few weeks before leaving the UK I'll still be well within the 90 days before it expires.

thanks again :D

Sorry, didn't see the other replies, cheers everyone for their input.

ohhh one more thing, say I wanted to stay for 4 months, would it be best to have my flight out of bali within the 60 days when landing then get it changed to 4 months. That way when I land I've got proof that I'll be leaving within my 60 days or doesn't that matter?

cheers!
