Immigration Fees Update 2019: Be sure to know them!

Immigration Fees

The Indonesian government reviews immigration fees around every 3 years. The last review was in 2015. Therefore, it is no surprise that the they have finally released a new fee table. In general the fees are now higher. In particular, the overstay penalty has been increased to Rp 1 million per day (!).

Beyond the overstay penalty, we review the immigration fees that you may commonly encounter.

Immigration Fees: Legal Background and Effective Date

Indonesian immigration fees are governed by Peraturan Pemerintah (PP or Government Regulation). The latest one to define immigration fees is PP no 28, 2019. This regulation was signed by President Joko Widodo on April 18, 2019. It is to take effect 15 days after signing, in other words, on May 3rd, 2019.

Overstay Penalty Increase

The penalty for overstay is now Rp 1 million per day, from previously Rp 300,000 per day

The single biggest increase is the overstay penalty. It is now Rp 1 million per day. Previously it was Rp 300,000 per day. This means that a booking miscalculation now costs over three times more!

Remember that Indonesian immigration count the days of arrival and departure as 1 day each. Please take this into account when making your travel plans.

Additionally, as our article on overstay notes, the maximum overstay penalty is 60 days. Therefore, the maximum fine is now Rp 60 million. Beyond 60 days, there is no longer a fine. Instead, the penalty is deportation and black listing from Indonesia
