Social Visa Indonesia: How to Get One

The Indonesian social Visa has grown in popularity among foreigners due to its ease of use. However, obtaining one alone can be difficult if you are unfamiliar with the country’s complex bureaucratic processes. Please consult us to ensure a smooth Indonesian visa application process and avoid unnecessary burdens.

A. Indonesia Social Visa: When Will You Need One?

Indonesian authorities grant social visas to eligible foreigners who wish to visit friends and relatives or participate in social, cultural, or educational exchanges within its borders. Furthermore, an Indonesian social visa (visa sosial budaya) is appropriate for those who intend to stay in the country longer than the free 30-day visa period.

B. Are You Eligible For an Indonesia Social Visa?

The onshore social visa is valid for 30 days upon arrival, whereas the offshore social visa is valid for 60 days.

It is also worth noting that holders of social visas are not permitted to engage in any business activities. To do so, you must obtain an Indonesian business visa or work permit for income-generating activities.

C. Requirements for Social Visa Applications in Indonesia

To ensure your Indonesian social visa application runs smoothly, you are required to provide documents such as a valid passport with a minimum validity of 12 months from the date of entry, and a bank statement with a minimum ending balance of USD 2,000 to show sufficient funds to cover travel expenses in Indonesia.
