Latest visa on arrival (VOA) changes starting 1st of August 2005

The Indonesian government has extended the list of countries eligible for Visa on Arrival (VOA) and has included another 14 countries, in an effort to attract more tourists to Indonesia and to streamline the entry process.

The following additional 14 countries being granted to the VOA facility are:

Austria, Belgium, China, Egypt, India, Ireland, Kuwait, Luxemburg, Maldives, Portugal, Qatar, Russia, SaudiArabia, and Spain

The 21 countries who are already eligible for VOA are:

Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, South Africa, South Korea, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States of America

The facility has yet to be extended to the Netherlands and Sweden.

The minister refused to explain why the two European countries were not included on the list. But however a source said, the government was worried about the possible entry of South Maluku Republic (RMS) separatist members living in the Netherlands.

Exiled leaders of the Free Aceh Movement (GAM) rebel group are living in Sweden as asylum seekers and Indonesia has left Sweden's ambassadorial post vacant since last year.

The VOA is for 30 days.
The 30-days visa has a new price,  now  35 US $
