Visas for Indonesia

Hi all, I have read that to obtain a visa for Indonesia visitors can apply for one in the airport when they land in Denpasar Bali. Is this true, and if so do I still need to bring passport photos. Also is it eaiser to get visas while in the U.S. instead of when I land. Thanks.

Yes, you can get a visa in DPS.
The cost is US $25 per person. Better to pay in US dollars.
No you don't need any photo.
Don't forget that there is also an Departure tax of 100000 Rupiah.

100000rp is $10 by the way or less...

have your fee in us dollars....no credit cards...cash...we had to wait in line for over an hour as about 4 flights arrived all at the same time...it was a pain....i would not do it again...i would get mine before i left home...others have reported not wait at all or only a few minutes...it was a mess the day we were there...i think it was a friday which may account for it...the a/c did not work well either...

no pictures needed...its all done by a 100 year old computer which is held together with scotch tape and luck...

$25 for > 3 days and $10 for < 3 days. We just got back from Bali last month and you can use your credit card to pay for the visa. No need to get them in advance as it does not take too long when your at the airport.

You can get a visa in Jakarta or Denpasar (Bali) and several other entry points. Last I heard visas were not available in Lombok.

The waiting time for a visa varies widely (like everything in Indonesia). Usually it's a fairly painless process, but things happen . . .

In the long run even with a wait, it's easier and cheaper than getting a visa at an Indonesian Embassy or consulate abroad.

Photos are not required.

They accept Mastercard and Visa but not Amex.

Some countries are not on the visa on arrival list (Sweden for example). Be sure to check before you leave home.
