There are two types of visit visa: 1) Visit Visa on Arrival, 2) Visit Visa
According to our Immigration and Ministry of Foreign Affairs regulation, students coming to Indonesia for exchange purposes MUST obtain VISIT VISA (Student Visa) which should be applied in Indonesian Embassy or Consulate (NOT visit visa on arrival, because visit visa on arrival is only for tourism purposes)
IMPORTANT: ACCORDING TO THE LAW, WE DO NOT ACCEPT VISA ON ARRIVALS
The Visa that you need to enter Indonesia for Student Exchange purposes is Visit Visa / Tourist Visa/ Sociocultural Visa, etc. (different embassies may call it with different term). The most important thing is all of those visa are visa with B211A index
Sometimes, you also may need TELEX in order to get the visa. We could get it for you from the Indonesian Immigration Office in Indonesia. But, you need to pay Rp. 100.000,- (according to the regulation, it may also change depends on the regulation). You will be asked to pay for us upon your arrival to Indonesia
Once you have obtained it, a holder of Visit Visa is given up-to 60 days stay and can be extended in Immigration Office for 5 (five) time, each extension will be given another 30 days stay.
