Do you need a visa for Indonesia and how do you apply for it?

Yes, in most cases you need a visa to Indonesia depending on the length of your stay and your nationality. There are several ways to apply for a visa for Indonesia, here are some of the main options.

Visa-free stay

Some nationalities, including Dutch nationals, can enter Indonesia visa-free for a limited period of time (usually 30 or 60 days), provided they are obtained upon arrival. This visa is non-extendable and not for business purposes.


Indonesia now also offers an e-visa for a number of nationalities, including Dutch citizens. This visa you can request through the official website, it is often cheaper than a visa on arrival and you will receive it directly via email. This visa is valid for 60 days.

Visa at the embassy

If you prefer to apply for a visa at the Indonesian embassy or consulate in the Netherlands, please contact the embassy or consulate to find out what documents you need and how to apply.

Please note that visa requirements are subject to change, so it is best to get the most up to date information and check with the Indonesian embassy or consulate in the Netherlands or the Indonesia e-visa website. Furthermore, it is also important to know whether or not a COVID-19 PCR test is required to enter the country, so inform yourself well about the current situation and requirements of the country.
