The U.S. Embassy cannot obtain entry permission for U.S. citizens whose passports do not meet this requirement. Your passport must also have two blank pages, not including endorsement pages. If you arrive with a passport that is valid for fewer than six months or does not have two blank pages, Indonesian authorities will require you to depart Indonesia immediately to obtain a new U.S. passport or extra pages; you will not be allowed to enter Indonesia. Also, if your passport does not have the required validity, you may be denied boarding at your point of origin or at a transit point en route.

You are required to have a visa to enter Indonesia. The visa may be obtained either before you arrive or upon arrival. Holders of a regular passport who are traveling for tourism, business or social purposes may apply for a 30-day visitor Visa-on-Arrival at airports in Jakarta, Bali, Surabaya, Banda Aceh, Medan, Padang, Pekanbaru, Manado, Biak, Ambon, Balikpapan, Pontianak, Kupang, Batam, and South Sumatra. Visa-on-Arrival is also available at a limited number of seaports, including the Batam and Bintan ferry terminals opposite Singapore, but they are unavailable at any land border crossing. An onward/return ticket is required to apply for a Visa-on-Arrival at these ports of entry. Visa-on-Arrival is only for tourism, temporary business, or visits to Indonesian family, friends or social or educational institutions Visa-on-Arrival is valid for 30 days, and costs 35 USD. A Visa-on-Arrival may be extended one time only for a period of 30 additional days.

Travel for other purposes requires the appropriate Indonesian visa that must be obtained before arrival. The Indonesian Embassy website indicates that Visa-on-Arrival is not available to government travelers who want to enter Indonesia on a diplomatic or official passport for an official purpose or mission. For details on Visa-on-Arrival and other visa information please visit the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia website.

If you are entering Indonesia, you must have two fully blank passport pages in your passport. Indonesian immigration inspectors do not consider amendment pages in your passport to be blank pages. If your passport visa pages are nearly full, consider applying for a new passport or adding extra visa pages to your passport before you travel - go to How to Add Extra Pages to Your U.S. Passport. If you don't meet Indonesian entry requirements, you may be denied entry with no recourse and put on the next available flight departing Indonesia.

Please be advised that Indonesian entry and visa procedures may be inconsistently applied at different ports of entry, and when faced with making a decision, Indonesian authorities usually make the more conservative, restrictive decision. Entry requirements are subject to change at the sole discretion of Indonesian authorities, a process over which the U.S. government has no control.

You may apply for a visa at the Indonesian Embassy in Washington, D.C., or at an Indonesian consulate elsewhere in the United States. In some cases, you may also apply at Indonesian embassies and consulates in other countries. If you are traveling overseas and wish to apply for an Indonesian visa, you should inquire with the local Indonesian embassy in the country where you are currently traveling. For up-to-date information, travelers may contact the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia: 2020 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington D.C. 20036, phone: (202) 775-5200, or at Indonesian Consulates in Los Angeles (213) 383-5126; San Francisco (415) 474-9571; Chicago (312) 920-1880; New York (212) 879-0600; and Houston (713) 785-1691.

Indonesia strictly enforces its immigration/visa requirements. Travelers who overstay the date stamped in their visa, including their Visa-on-Arrival, are subject to a fine of 250,000 Rupiah (IDR), approximately 30 USD, per day, as well as other sanctions. Westerners, including U.S. citizens, have been jailed for visa violations, including for overstays. Violators may also be subject to substantial fines and/or deportation from Indonesia for immigration violations. Immigration officials have also detained foreigners for working, studying, or engaging in other non-tourist activities while in visitor status. Even gratis volunteer work with local or international NGOs is not permitted in visitor status. Penalties for such immigration/visa violations have included a prison sentence of up to five years and a fine of 25 million IDR (2,077 USD). Travelers should contact an Indonesian consular office to determine the appropriate visa category before traveling to Indonesia. Please also consult the Criminal Penalties section below for further information.

All airline passengers, including children, diplomats, and other public officials, are subject to a departure tax, which must be paid in Rupiah, cash only. The international departure tax as of October 2014 is 150,000 IDR (12.48 USD). The domestic departure tax in Jakarta is 40,000 IDR (3.32 USD) and varies elsewhere. .
