Indonesia Visa in Bangkok
10th August, 2007
The wife and I just got our Indonesian Visas in Bangkok and I thought I'd summarize the process asI couldn't find anything already out there.
Visa application is 9-12 M-F. Pickup is 1400-1500, two days later.
We arrived Tues morning about 855am, nobody waiting out front, the door opened 5 minutes later and we submitted our application, copy of itinerary showing flight out of Indonesia,2 photos each, a copy of each passport and $45 each (1 CAN & 1 USA passport).
Embassy website says bank statement is required which we had but the lady didn't seem too interested. We don't look like "backpackers" so not sure if that was the reason or if they just don't care.
We returned Thursday afternoon at 2pm again no line, received our passports and were on our way.
Very painless, no lineups. Take the skytrain to Ratchathewi and the embassy is a few hundred meters walk from there.

Was that for the 60-day visa?

Yes visa on arrival is available for many countries but it is for 30 days if you want 60 days you have to apply (+ pay) for a visa in advance.

I would like to get a 60 day visa for Indonesia. I will be traveling from Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur to Bali and back to Kuala Lumpur. I do not know how long I will stay in Kuala Lumpur so I can't book a ticket yet.
I believe the 60 day visa has to be used within 90 days of being issued.
Do you have to show an actual purchased ticket or just a printout of what your itinerary is (showing the flight times)? I prefer to get the visa stamp while I am in Bangkok rather than wait.

I'm with @farsidetravel - most places I've looked online say that you need proof of an onward ticket for the Indonesian visa. Can anyone testify to submitting an application without this piece? Will a reservation do? Is there any way to reason with the officials and give them a legitimate excuse as to why I haven't purchased an onward ticket? (something like: I plan on volunteering in Sumatra and converting my visa into a social visa, or I haven't yet been accepted to my volunteer program in the Philippines thus why I haven't purchased my ticket)
Or is the purchased onward plane ticket out of Indonesia a strict requirement for the issuance of this visa?
