Indonesian authorities grant social visas to eligible foreigners who wish to visit their friends and relatives or participate in social, cultural, or educational exchanges within its territory. In addition, an Indonesian social visa (visa sosial budaya) is also suitable for those who plan to stay in the country longer than a free-visa period of 30 days.

To ensure your Indonesian social visa application runs smoothly, you are required to provide documents such as:

  • A valid passport with a minimum validity of 12 months from the date of entry
  • A bank statement with a minimum ending balance of USD 2,000

It is also important to note that social visa holders are prohibited from engaging in business activities. You must obtain an Indonesian business visa or work permit for income-generating activities.
