Emiratis and select UAE residents eligible for visa on arrival in Indonesia – Business traveler

Earlier this week, VFS Global introduced Indonesia’s first fast-track Visa on Arrival service for Emiratis, as well as citizens of 75 countries residing in the UAE.

Eligible travelers can apply for both business and tourist visas online prior to departure through VFS Global.

For this initiative, VFS has signed an agreement with TLP, the Immigration Department of the Republic of Indonesia and Bank Mandiri, to provide online fare prepayment, fast access and concierge services to international passengers arriving in Jakarta.

Once these travelers submit their application online, a confirmation will be emailed to them and the visa will be processed in advance to be stamped upon arrival.

Upon arrival, these passengers can switch to a fast track lane which will expedite the process of having their visa stamped in their passport.

VFS said it will offer Standard and Express service options to those who apply online. Applicants opting for the Standard service may submit their applications up to 72 hours before the departure date. Those who opt for the Express service may submit their requests up to 24 hours before the departure date. The Express service also provides personalized end-to-end assistance from the arrival gate to immigration, baggage claim and customs.

In addition, citizens and residents of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, who are eligible for this service and prefer to apply for the visa in person before their departure rather than online, can visit the Indonesian Visa on Arrival kiosks located outside the VFS. Global Visa Application Centers located at Wafi Mall in Dubai as well as WTC Mall in Abu Dhabi where you will be assisted by VFS staff.

“Indonesia is a popular destination for travelers from all over the world, and we are pleased to introduce a service that will make your visa application process faster and easier. With technology-driven Do It Yourself solutions becoming increasingly popular, this first rapid visa-on-arrival service is sure to offer applicants a more relaxed experience on arrival,” said Jiten Vyas, Chief Commercial Officer of Global VFS.
