Until mid of 2015 the Visa on Arrival regulation applied to most countries. In order to increase visitors coming to Indonesia the ministry of tourism decided to change the rules boldly. Indonesia hopes that by waiving the visa fee for so many countries, more tourists will come. Whether a visa cost of Rp. 500.000,- was truly a deal breaker for tourists to come to Indonesia will have to be seen. So far, the income Indonesia lets go of, (35US$ for around 3mio foreign tourists every year) is quite substantial for this country.

Penghitungan Hari - Tinggal Melebihi Jatah Hari di Indonesia

Berapa hari Anda bisa tinggal dengan Visa on Arrival atau cap gratis?
Anda tidak akan menjadi orang pertama yang mencoba untuk meninggalkan Indonesia dengan asumsi bahwa Anda terlihat, tapi karena ternyata, petugas imigrasi mengejutkan Anda dengan senyum meminta Anda untuk beberapa uang ekstra - Anda tinggal lebih lama.

Baik untuk mengetahui:
- VoA dan cap bebas TIDAK VALID UNTUK SATU BULAN. Ini 30 hari - Hari kedatangan dianggap sebagai hari pertama
- Hari keberangkatan juga dihitung
Bahkan jika Anda meninggalkan atau tiba 5 menit setelah tengah malam , yang "baru" hari akan dihitung sebagai sehari penuh . Contoh: Jika Anda tiba pada tanggal 15 Maret di 0:20 pagi hari, Anda harus meninggalkan Indonesia paling telat pada 13 April sebelum tengah malam.

Kelebihan waktu tinggal
Jika Anda kelebihan waktu tinggal Anda akan harus membayar denda Rp. 1.000.000 per hari . Hingga 3 hari biasanya tidak ada masalah, Anda hanya akan membayar biaya di konter imigrasi tanpa mendapatkan dipersulit (tetap sopan setiap saat dan katakan Anda salah perhitungan atau mengalami kesulitan mendapatkan bus dari Jawa, dll).
Banyak wisatawan yang ingin memaksimalkan liburan mereka "pada hari terakhir" berakhir membayar biaya tambahan (denda) karena mereka salah berasumsi, bahwa visa berlaku selama satu bulan. Jadi hati-hati khususnya bulan yang memiliki 31 hari.
Alasan yang baik untuk tinggal melewati jatah hari? Jika Anda memiliki alasan yang baik dan tinggal lebih dari 3 hari (misalnya rawat inap, pembatalan penerbangan karena abu vulkanik, pemogokan, dll) maka Anda masih membayar hukuman tetapi Anda tidak akan dipersulit bahkan jika Anda tinggal dengan tambahan selama 2 minggu (Yang Maha Kuasa sedang bekerja). Namun, pastikan untuk membawa dokumen yang diperlukan dengan Anda, yang dapat membuktikan alasan sah Anda.
