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.
