Jakarta: Foreign citizens who enter Indonesia using an Electronic Visa on Arrival (e-VOA) now do not need to process an extension at the immigration office. To be able to stay in Indonesia for the next 30 days, they only need to apply for an e-VOA extension via the molina.imigrasi.go.idwebsite. No need to scan proof of entry (stamp) from the Immigration Checkpoint.
"Foreigners who use e-VOA to enter Indonesia have their data recorded in the immigration system. Thus, they do not need to upload proof of entry on their passport when applying for an e-VOA extension on the Molina (Foreigner Mobility Module) website," said the Public Relations Sub-coordinator of the Directorate General of Immigration, Achmad Nur Saleh, Monday (30/01/ 2023).
The e-VOA extension process is similar to an application made before a foreigner enters Indonesian Territory. E-VOA holders log in to the website molina.imigrasi.go.id, click the 'Extend' button, then follow the instructions listed. Make sure all the data entered is correct.
"Furthermore, payments can be made directly online using a Visa, Mastercard, JCB network, or debit card included in the Visa. After the payment is complete, the foreigner will receive an e-VOA digital document extended via an email address," he explained.
Electronic Visa on Arrival is valid for 30 days and can only be extended 1 (one) time for the next 30 days. Therefore, Achmad advised foreigners who have extended their e-VOA must leave Indonesian Territory before the expiration date.
"If you want to extend through this website, the foreigner concerned must already have an e-VOA and have entered Indonesian Territory," he said.
