Travel & Immigration

Entering Indonesia

Foreign nationals may enter the country through various land checkpoints, airports and seaports all over the country. The most direct way to get the conference venue is to fly using commercial airline to Soekarno-Hatta International Airport  (IATA code: CGK) which is about 50-60 minutes from the city centre. Soekarno-Hatta is a well-connected airport servicing many major carriers from all over the world.

Currently, citizens from a selected number of nations may enter Indonesia for tourism purposes without a visa for a limited time period. That being said, many nationalities are still required to apply for a visa upon arrival or obtain a visa from the Indonesian consulate from their home country.
