Question: What is the current process with quarantine?
Answer: (Currently, from 28.12.2020) At present, every foreigner who enters Indonesia (at his own expense e.g. 300.- € ) must be quarantined for 5 days. – Up to Date: 25.02.2021 –
So far, none of our guests have had to be quarantined. We are also not aware of any case in which an in-arriving tourist had to be quarantined. As long as you can show a negative PCR test when entering Jakarta, there are no problems. Self-quarantine (private house quarantine) is recommended if you have cold symptoms. However, this is not checked, it is the responsibility of the person.
Question: If my visa is not approved, or the operation is canceled by me, will I receive a refund?
Answer: Yes, we will refund the transfer amount minus 90 EUR. Unfortunately, we cannot refund the full amount, as some of the fees paid to the Indonesian Government are non-refundable even in the event of rejection.
Question: How often is it that a visa application is rejected?
Answer: We have not yet had a case where the visa has been refused. As long as the above conditions are met, the visa should be approved. The reason for refusal would be, for example, if there is an entry on the Indonesian blacklist due to previous violations of the law in Indonesia or because an international arrest warrant is pending.
Question: Is this visa also suitable for children?
Answer: Yes, the B211A visa can be used for the whole family.
Question: Do children, toddlers and babies also need a negative corona test?
Answer: Yes, all people who want to enter Bali currently need a negative Corona test.
Question: I don’t have 10,000 USD in my account. Is there still a way to get a visa?
Answer: The bank balance will only be checked once upon application. Full bookings for the whole month do not need to be disclosed. It is possible to borrow the shortfall from someone or at an additional cost of approx. 60 EUR the sponsor (the inviting company) issues a separate statement for the government. However, we strongly advise not to travel to Bali or Indonesia if there is insufficient monthly income.
Question: How does this work with the extension if I want to stay longer than 60 days?
Answer: Depending on the sponsor, there is the possibility to carry out the extension on site in the Immigration Office. This incurs a cost of IDR 250,000 for copies of the inviting company’s business records (plus renewal costs). Alternatively, the inviting company can take care of renewing your visa. The current cost is IDR 1,500,000 (90 EUR) for the first extension (3. months). 1,000,000 IDR (60 EUR) for each additional visa extension.
Question: Who is my sponsor?
Answer: We work with several companies in the field of tourism and legal advice. Depending on the request of the application, we will choose the best sponsor for your case. If someone needs, for example, the visa as soon as possible we take the company which can currently deliver the fastest at the best price. If someone wants to stay longer than 2 months we take the company where the visa extension is most straightforward. We draw on our experience over the last few years as well as the experience of the past week in terms of processing time.
Question: How does this work with the payment? When do I have to pay how much?
Answer: After all documents have been checked by us and have been checked by the agency, you will receive the invoice from us. After payment, your data will be loaded into the Indonesian immigration system. As standard, we provide an invoice with bank details. If you want to pay by PayPal (additional fees) this is also possible, we can issue the invoice as it is easiest for you to pay.
Question: What documents are required for the visa application?
Answer: In order to apply for a visa, we need a colour copy of the passport (main page with picture and cover), a bank statement on which account holder, balance, bank and account number are recognizable, as well as proof of a foreign health insurance.
Question: Do I have to show a return ticket and within what time do I have to return or leave?
Answer: There is a possibility that the airport will ask for a return or departure ticket when departing for Indonesia. It may also be that you will be asked about it on arrival in Indonesia. A flight reservation is sufficient. This must be within 180 days of arrival in Indonesia. This means that even if the visa is only valid for 60 days from entry, it is possible to extend the visa for up to 6 months.
