What are the differences between e-VOA and regular VOA mechanisms?
Unlike the usual Visa on Arrival extension mechanism which is carried out at the immigration office, Electronic Visa on Arrival (e-VOA) can be directly extended online through the website molina.immigration.go.id. Simply with a smartphone and internet network, Foreign Citizens (WNA) e-VOA users can take care of the extension, anytime and anywhere.
Foreigners who use e-VOA do not need to show the entry permit attached to their passport at the Immigration Checkpoint (TPI) in the arrival area of the airport, port or land crossing. The foreigner’s data is automatically recorded in the immigration system.
Meanwhile, ordinary Visa on Arrival applied for by foreigners on the spot at the airport/port arrival area can still be obtained. The availability of this facility is intended to facilitate foreigners who urgently or suddenly have to come to Indonesia and do not have internet network access.
For foreigners who use ordinary/conventional VoA who want to extend, the requirements that must be prepared are the entry mark in the passport and show the ticket to leave the area at the immigration office. Foreigners can extend their VoA at any immigration office throughout Indonesia.
