Visas

  • PDF

For language learners planning to stay in Indonesia for less than 30 days, a visa upon arrival can be obtained at the airport of entry.

For those planning on staying for a longer period, the Language Center can assist in obtaining a Social Cultural Visa (Visa Sosial Budaya) through providing a Sponsorship letter. People in this category need to first contact their country’s Indonesian Embassy or Consulate to find out the current requirements in applying for a Social Cultural Visa. This visa enables an initial stay of 2 months, which can then be extended a month at a time, up to 6 months stay in the country. After this time learners need to exit the country (usually to a neighbouring country) to commence the process again.
