Indonesia Visa on Arrival News 2023
As of now, foreign visitors who want to visit Indonesia must download the Electronic Visa on Arrival application. The only thing needed is for foreigners to register their visa requests on the Indonesian e-VOA official website. They can then immediately use a credit card or debit card with the Visa, Mastercard, or JCB logo to make payments online after that.
Following payment, the officer will verify the e-VOA application and, if authorized, will send it to foreigners via the application. Additionally, when entering Indonesian territory, foreigners only need to download the authorized e-VOA and present it at the immigration checkpoint.
By luring tourists or the upper class from different countries, global talent, and billionaire business people to come and develop their investments and businesses in Indonesia, the e-VOA service is anticipated to welcome more opportunities for foreign nationals who have the potential to enter the country and support the tourism industry, increase foreign investment, and create jobs.
