(May 2019)

The Director General of Immigration has announced that effective immediately a very substantial increase in the fine imposed on foreign national who overstay the validity date on their visa is now in effect.

In a circular memo issued on behalf of the Director General of Immigration dated April 29, 2019, the former fine of IDR 300,000 per day for overstaying a visa issued to a foreigner has been increased to IDR 1,000,000 per day, effective May 3, 2019.

The daily fine scheme will be applied against foreigners who have overstayed the original visa for less than 60 days. Overstays of more than 60 days cannot be resolved through the payment of the daily fine and are handled by immigration as a criminal violation of immigration law with penalties, including possible jail time, decided by an administrative court.

Overstays of less than 60 days can normally be settled by paying the applicable fine at the departure point to immigration authorities.


Please find a copy of the customs forms (it is only one page back and front) that you will be asked to fill out. Please fill them out on the plane (when the flight attendant passes them out) in order to facilitate your passing customs quickly. We have always found the customs officers quite friendly (no hassle types) so a quick smile goes along way. We are a leisure destination, so they are used to seeing a lot of camera equipment for all those divers that want to take underwater shots back home. Remember – NO DRUGS!
