An Indonesian business visa is an excellent option for those that intend to enter the country without generating any income. These non-income generating occasions could include business meetings, seminars, exhibitions conferences, and the like.
For these business-related purposes, the document you must obtain is a single-entry business visa or a multiple-entry business visa.* These types of visas are relatively quick and easy to get, and using our services, they can be obtained entirely online. The whole procedure should take approximately 14 working days.
What is the difference between a single-entry and multiple-entry business visa?
The single-entry and multiple-entry business visas are similar. A visa holder will require a sponsor company for the application process, and each stay duration cannot exceed 60 days. Otherwise, they are quite different.
For a single-entry business visa, a visa holder can only enter Indonesia one time. Once they leave the country, they must apply for a new visa once they reenter. This visa is valid for 60 days but can be extended up to four times, making this visa valid for potentially up to 180 days.
In contrast, a holder of a multiple-entry business visa can enter and leave Indonesia as many times as they wish while their visa is valid*. A multiple-entry is valid for up to one year.
*due to the COVID-19 pandemic, multiple-entry business visa applications are unavailable. To enter Indonesia, please apply for a single-entry business visa.
