Jakarta. The Indonesian immigration office on Wednesday announced an increase in fees for some of its services, including visa-on-arrival application fees for foreign nationals and new passports for Indonesians.
“The price for immigration [services] charged on the public will change starting July 3, 2014, in line with the issuance of the 2014 government regulation... on the types of non-tax revenues and the tariffs imposed on them as regulated by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights,” the immigration office said in a statement signed by its spokesman Heriyanto.
The price for a seven-day visa-on-arrival has been set to $15 from the initial $10, while the price for a 30-day visa-on-arrival will be increased to $35 from the initial $25.
In the regulation, the government has also set a new passport application fee.
The cost of a 48-page passport will be increased to Rp 355,000 from the initial Rp 255,000, while electronic passport application fee remains the same at Rp 600,000.
“With this notification, we hope the public will understand the new costs they need to pay for the services,” the statement said.
