Longer Visa Will Soon Be Available
February 20th, 2007

Indonesia is to grant foreign visitors visas for up to 120 days compared to the current
30 days in a bid to boost tourism, Vice President Jusuf Kalla said.

“It is now being processed, that tourists get four months,” said the vice president.

This policy is a part of the government’s drive to attract more foreign visitors besides the soaring arrival target and extra funding for tourism promotion.

At present, tourists from 54 countries can obtain a 30-day visa on arrival at a
cost of 25 dollars, or free for most Southeast Asian nations.

Kalla said the 54 countries — which include most of Europe, China, India, the US, Canada,
Australia and New Zealand — accounted for about 90 percent of Indonesia‘s foreign tourists.

Visitors especially the backpackers and retired travelers have complained that 30 days is far too short a time to take in the vast archipelago, which stretches for thousands of kilometres.
