    Hi, thank you for all the informations. Some people told me I will need a “sponsor” (A local person from Indonesia) to do a visa extension. Is that true ?

      Hi Fernandel,

      For all kind of Visa you need “a sponsor” of a local person or Indonesian.
      Sponsor is the person in charge who ensure you won’t do any criminals in Indonesia.
      Or person in charge if something happened to you.

      There are many kind of Visa:
      Visa for tourism visit, visa for family visit, visa for student, visa for business,
      visa for social visit, visa for journalist, etc.
      For Visa for tourism visit, your travel agency is your “sponsor” actually.

      If you come from the country that categorized free Visa country,
      You can not extend your visa.
      It means you have to leave from Indonesia or you can pay the overstay.
      Around IDR 300k per day.

      There is also another kind of Visa,
      Visa on arrival.
      You pay visa when you landed in the airport.
      You can extend this kind of visa,
      but you will need a “sponsor”.

      Regards.

        Hi! I’m on my way to Yogayakarta to extend my visa. I see you say you need a sponsor and that my “travel agency” can be my sponsor. What do you mean by this? The company I booked my flight with or the hostel I am staying in?
        Many thanks.

          Hi,

          A “Sponsor” is a local people (guarantor) who ensure/guarantee that you do not something bad (criminals) or ensure that you won’t bankrupt (no money) in Indonesia. Also it defined as a local people who charges if something happened to you such as lost, accident, death, victim, etc.

          You can ask the man or the manager or the room boy in your hostel to be your “Sponsor” to extend your Visa in Indonesia.
