Purposes of Visits which no longer require a Visa

Previously, citizens of most countries could only visit Indonesia without a visa for leisure / tourist purposes. Only ASEAN countries could visit Indonesia without visa for other purposes, such as business meetings. Under the New regulation, the following purposes of visit are allowed for the 169 countries:

1. Leisure / tourism
2. Family visits
3. Social
4. Art and cultural
5. Government visits
6. Giving lectures or attend seminars
7. Meetings held by the Head Office or Representative Office in Indonesia
8. Transfer flights

A major positive point for businesses in Indonesia is that the new Regulation now allows business meetings without the requirement to obtain a business visa in Indonesia.
