Hello people,

Just need some help with a quick question...

I'm due to fly into Indonesia (Bali) on February 14th 2013 and have a flight booked out of Indonesia (Medan) on March 30th 2013.

Because of the time I arrive and the time I leave Indonesia is longer than 30 days, will I still be allowed to get a 30 day visa on arrival and extend it whilst i'm their, as I have proof of a flight out of the country even though it exceeds the visa date?

Or do I need to book a cheap flight that i won't use within the 30 day period to be safe?

Please help ASAP


Leon :)

Hello Leon,
To be sure why not get a 2 months visa in an indonesian embassy.?
When asking for a visa on arrival nobody asked me to show a return flight ticket at Denpasar airport, when arriving here in december. So i assume it will be no problem to come in.
But extension of the visa will cost you some time.
Have a nice trip.

I didn't get asked to show my return ticket on entering Indonesia (in Jakarta) either but a guy on my tour did, so it probably just depends on the person you get at immigration. I agree with the previous poster though that it might just be less hassle to get your extended visa before you enter the country.
