Indonesia Social Visa: When Will You Need One?

Indonesian authorities grant social visas to eligible foreigners who wish to visit their friends and relatives or participate in social, cultural, or educational exchanges within its territory. In addition, an Indonesian social visa (visa sosial budaya) is also suitable for those who plan to stay in the country longer than a free-visa period of 30 days.

Are You Eligible For an Indonesia Social Visa?

The onshore social visa is valid for 30 days, whereas the offshore social visa is valid for 60 days upon the arrival date.

It is also important to note that social visa holders are not permitted to engage in any business activities. To do so, you are required to obtain an Indonesian business visa or work permit for income-generating activities.
