Formalities to enter and stay in Indonesia

If you are traveling on a Luxembourg Citizen passport, you don't need a visa to enter Indonesia for visits of up to 30 days. A return ticket or other proof of exit from the territory will be required by the Indonesian authorities. For Luxembourg citizens who have benefited from the visa exemption, it is not allowed to extend the stay beyond 30 days during being in the country.

According to the regulations in force, only people who travel for the following reasons benefit from visa exemption: tourism; family visit; social; art and culture; official mission (holders of official passports or a mission letter for an official trip); participation in a seminar / conference, international trade fair / fair, meetings with the parent company or the subsidiary of a company in Indonesia; transit.

If you’re traveling to Indonesia and intend to stay for more than 30 days (up to a maximum of 60 days), you should apply for a visa before you travel, or apply for a visa on arrival at a cost of US$ 35, or the equivalent in Indonesian rupiah, at the visa on arrival desk within the airport. These types of visa are valid for 30 days, and can be extended once (for a maximum of 30 days) by making an application for an extension to an immigration office within Indonesia. Ensure that you extend your visa within the initial 30 days to avoid an overstay fine.

The Indonesian embassy in Brussels has introduced a new e-visa system. You should submit your visa application online .

Travelers must have a passport valid from the date of your departure from Indonesia and blank pages to affix the visa. The passport must be in very good condition: a damaged passport (torn pages, cover in poor condition, etc.) may result in refusal to access Indonesian territory.

Any foreigner staying in Indonesia after the expiration of their visa (overstay) is liable to a fine of 1,000,000 rupiahs (about US $ 90) per day for the first 60 days of visa overrun. Beyond these 60 days, the maximum fine is 500 million rupiahs (approximately US $ 52,590). A foreigner in a situation of overstay will not be allowed to leave the country if he has not paid the amount of the fine and may be placed in detention if he is unable to quickly regularize his situation.
