Visa on arrival queues?..

Hi There

I am planning to get a VOA at JKC Jakarta.

My arrival is 13:35 in and leaving is 17.20 depart. Will have to switch between 1b and 2d...

Would it be enough tim to get VOA and switch,? I know the queues can get quite long?

Thanks so much, dint mean to be rude in previous post, having a rushed day.

Much appreciated

Johanni N, hello and welcome to TA

1/<<Would it be enough time to get VOA and switch,?>>

With your timing - YES, absolutely enough, you`ll have almost 4 hours between flights. The VOA line depends on the airport business at the moment.

2/ No need to apply in advance ( for Indian passport holder) if you stay does not exceed 30 days.

3/ The general requirements for Visa On Arrival are:

Expiration date of the applicant's passport must be at least 6 (six) months at the date of entry.

Round-trip airplane ticket

Fees

The fees for Visa On Arrival are:

Visa for stay up to 30 (thirty) days = US$ 25,-( bring the exact money)

4/ NOTE: airport departure tax in Indonesia is levied physically from passenger at airline check-in counter.

Domestic 40k k IDR ( except Garuda domestic)

International 150k IDR

Be ready to pay in cash, IDR only. No cards, no other currency.

Do not worry, you will have plenty of time for the connection.

Just remember the arrivals and departures formalities that you must make.

While generally VOA can be paid with USD, please be advised that airport tax is to be paid in IDR for your departure fflight out of terminal 1b. Domestic airport tax is IDR40,000

Should be fine but just make sure you get into the right queue, first you have to queue to pay then queue to get the visa. Getting off the plane quickly and getting into the queue makes a huge difference.
