Indonesia – Visa

Please note

that the visa application process and the list of required documents may change at any time. Make sure to get the latest information on Indonesian visa regulations directly from the Indonesian embassy in your home country. Getting a visa to a foreign country should never be taken for granted and cannot be guaranteed by Asia Exchange in any way. Please also refer to our terms and conditions. All students accepted to study abroad at Udayana University, Warmadewa University, and UNDIKNAS need to get a student visa. We recommend all students start the application process for the visa as soon as they get the required documents.

Applying for a student visa

In Indonesia, a student visa belongs to the Social-Cultural visa category. The Indonesian Embassy grants single-entry Social-Cultural visas to study in Indonesia (Index C9). However, not all embassies issue Social-Cultural visas for study purposes.

With the Social-Cultural visa, you can stay a maximum of 60 days in Indonesia. The visa must be extended at the destination according to the instructions given by the host university.

Below, you will find a summary of the application process for the Social-Cultural visa and other visa options. However, please note that visa regulations may change at any time and without prior notice. Therefore, we recommend all students consult their local embassy websites for the most up-to-date information.






  • Official Acceptance Letter and Embassy Letter

    The student visa application process goes hand in hand with issuing your official acceptance letters (OAL). Therefore, you do not need to wait for an OAL to start your visa application. The host university will support you throughout the entire steps of your visa application together with a Visa agency appointed and trusted by the host university.

  • Visa Expenses

    The Visa Index C9, sponsored by your host university and handled by the university’s recommended visa agency, costs roughly 6 million IDR (approximately 368.50 Euros). The cost includes the following services:

    • e-Visa fee
    • Arrival visa frees of 60 days (2 months)
    • A visa extension of another 60 days (2 months). Please note that the total duration of your semester is 4 months. However, you can extend your C9 visa for a second time if you wish to stay longer in Bali after your semester ends. The cost that applies for the second extension is roughly 2.8 million IDR (approximately 170 euros).
  • Arrival in Indonesia

    Once you receive your e-Visa confirmation via email, you may travel to Indonesia and be granted 60 days (2 months) of stay. After 60 days, the Visa agency will help you to extend your visa to receive another 60 days of stay.
