Indonesia’s Visa-On-Arrival Program Added 12 Countries

The Indonesian government recently broadened the eligibility requirements for its Visa on Arrival (VoA) program, which had previously been restricted to nationals of just 60 countries. On May 30th, the newly implemented expansion became active.

Bahrain, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kuwait, Egypt, Morocco, Oman, Peru, Russia, Serbia, Ukraine, and Jordan are some of the new nations that have joined the organization. Under the terms of the program, nationals from seventy-two countries are currently permitted to enter Indonesia via nine airports, eleven seaports, and four border posts.

To be eligible for a visa upon arrival, a traveler must first establish that they are a citizen of one of the 72 countries that are currently taking part in the program.

As it prepares to open its convention centers and event venues for these significant gatherings, the government of Bali will be eager to eliminate any possible hurdles that may be encountered by visitors, participants, and support teams.

It is important to take note that both Russia and Ukraine have been included in the Visa-on-Arrival program, and there has been a great deal of discussion regarding this decision on the internet. President Joko Widodo of Indonesia extended an invitation to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine, despite the fact that Ukraine is not a member of the G20.

Jokowi has also accepted the offer to attend the G20 conference that was extended to him by President Putin.

Even though the United States has made it abundantly clear that Putin and Russia are not welcome, the president of Indonesia was quoted as saying that he wants Indonesia to be able to unite the G20 and promote peace and stability. This is despite the fact that the United States has made it abundantly clear that Putin and Russia are not welcome.
