What is a Visa?
A visa is a document issued by an Indonesian Embassy or Consulate upon approval from the Immigration Office in Jakarta. A visa entitles the holder to travel to Indonesia and apply for admission; it does not guarantee entry. An immigration officer at the port of entry determines the visa holder's eligibility for admission into Indonesia.
