Indonesia Opens Online Onshore Visa Application Services

On 3rd August 2020, Indonesia launched Online Onshore Visa Application Services for foreign nationals currently residing in Indonesia. This means that foreign nationals holding Indonesian Immigration Stay Permits can apply for a visa without leaving Indonesia. The two types of visas that can be applied for are Visit Visas (Visitor’s Visa) and Temporary Stay Permits (VITAS).

To use this service, one must complete the following procedures:


  1. Visit http://visa-online.imigrasi.go.id
  2. A sponsor must create an account for sponsorship
  3. A sponsor must apply for a visa approval on http://visa-online.imigrasi.go.id and foreign workers on http://tka-online.imigrasi.go.id.
  4. After uploading required documents, a sponsor will receive a billing payment (in IDR or USD) and must complete the payment at banks.
  5. When a visa is granted, it will be sent to sponsors and applicants via email.
  6. The tariffs regarding visa telex and visa fees are in accordance with the Indonesian Government Regulation No. 28 of 2019 on Non-Tax Revenue and can be viewed here.


Kindly note that visit visa holders can apply for a stay permit extension in person at an immigration office. Temporary stay visa holders must also apply for a new stay permit in person at the immigration office after receiving a new visa by email.

Any foreign national residing in Indonesia can apply for a visa in person or individually without third parties. One should also watch out for a visa scam that is being run in the Directorate General of Immigration’s name and report to the Directorate General of Immigration in case of exposure to this scam.
